Hi, no fuel lift pump on her. New filter.Injectors back in, fuel shoots out of the 2 pipes, Diesel shop had no ideas. Will charge battery. Bloody mystery. Diesel gets to injectors but wont go. Try ether still no go.

Does it feel like you have OK compression?

Reading your initial post two things come to mind - you changed the supply hose and now it wont go , so surely a good bleed of the supply,pump, and injectors and you should be back in business...but the second thing is it stopped recently but then went ok again - was this after the overhaul of the pump/injectors ? I'm wondering if the reason it stopped recently is back in play...Any extra background info could shed some light here. As others have mentioned if the battery or starter is a bit dozy it swings the odds against you especially if there is something else such as a little bit of air still in the system somewhere .

If all the usual suspect don't work it must be something else. A diesel should only require fuel and compression. Does it even fire or puff smoke out of the exhaust?

If it won't even fire with ether would suggest that compression must be the issue if it does fire with ether but won't run would fuel is the issue.

turn it over and sprey hits of CRC engine start into the air intake....  remove air filter...  you will get minor knocking   but the engine will actually run this way

 

 

I can bleed me Perkins 4108 this way and they are bastards to manually bleed

Put some clean fresh diesel in a household spray bottle and remove air filter then crank engine whilst spraying into air intake manifold.

Far better for the engine than ether WD40 etc etc.

If no luck it will pay to check the engine compression with the correct tester.

Standard compression testers will not do the job.

You of all people should know there is never anything silly enough to be embarrassing when sailing. There are two types of Boaties. Those that have and those that will. No matter how silly something sounds, we all have either done it or will do.

However, I doubt this is the problem anyway, as all these engine stop parts work by stopping the fuelfrom being pumped from the IP to the Injector. But Vic has said he is getting fuel at the injector, which would not happen if the stop thingy was pulled.
