A bypass hose and a couple plugs...easy peezy.

With twins, even a control engine as well.

The green tag in your picture clearly shows 2725E in the upper left corner. That means it’s a 135, a “Dover” engine. Not a 120.

A fellow at our marina never drained his pump in 10 years and he had an engine runaway. When he investigated he found no engine damage (although he saw 3500 r/m before it quit) and changed his pump oil. So far so good.

Anecdotal, scary as hell. Has anyone considered an air cut-off device in case of runaways? I have a bucket that fits over the intake perfectly, but not a Lehman.

Did you ever hear how the actual runaway occurred? What broke or came loose in the pump?


Or was this not on a standard Lehman 120 pump and it DID use engine circulating oil that finally dumped enough fuel into the crankcase?

If the oil gets contaminated by fuel then that’s a reason to not use the engines oil system

I think any diesel fuel that were to go back to the engine crankcase would pretty rapidly evaporate out. Plus, I don't think we would be talking a large quantity of fuel in a short time . . . . Heh, I'd volunteer to try it, but we're still looking for a boat to buy! . . . and it might not even have FL120's!

Well, I wish it weren"t me but my newly rebuilt fuel injection pumps ran flawlessly for 50 hours, then I discovered they didn't have a drop of oil. Advised by Brian Smith to have an oil analysis on the oil that I put in after I 've 50 hours on it. Getting close, my friend suggested pouring the oil into a glass to look at it for metal. What I have noticed is that there is a sign of fuel on the water that wasn't present before so maybe one of my freshly rebuilt pumps is not working so well.
