Does anyone know the fuel return rate for the 7.7?

Just a dribble. How that for being quantitative??? I don't know, but I have bench run a bunch of these and if I had to guess it would be a gal in a couple hrs.

Trying to transfer fuel with a gennie???

I'll support that quantitative, scientific, without a doubt...guesstimation.

My 8kW Westerbeake is a dribbler too.

When changing fuel tanks and making up a manifold...both the Lehman and the Westerbeake returned so little in a 1/2 hour...I just relumbed the returns into the feeds from the fuel tank.

Can't guarantee your model is similar...when it's running with a decent load....just pull the return off and stick it into a can...the worst that will happen is it's more than you thought and need to shut it off before you can reattach the return.
