Well, I just spent 32 minutes after work (I live aboard and work from home) trying to bleed by port engine (easiest to reach lift pump and CAV pump) and I don't know how to say this....But,.. I love you guys! Easy to bleed with the lift pump (in the right position!). When done. mopped up fuel and she fired right up! Zero crank, just started like a Perkins should.
Again. my sincerest THANK YOU ALL!
Made my weekend! Now, tomorrow, tackle the starboard engine. Piece of cake now!
