Read and familiarize yourself with the description of the Engine Control System before attempting to start the engine (see
Although the engine is shipped with the Injection Pump, high pressure line, Injector, and Fuel Transfer Pump filled with fuel, it is necessary to draw fuel from the vessel's tank to charge the primary filter and transfer pump fuel line. The following procedure will accomplish this and verify the system performance.
- Place the Off/Run/Start switch in the Run position.
- Place the Handcrank (20/6) into the Camshaft (3/45), located in the center of the Water Pump Drive Pulley. Rotate the crank counterclockwise until you feel hard resistance from the compression stroke.
- Find the Fuel Transfer Pump (3/50) on the upper right side of the engine. Pump the Priming Lever for 20 to 30 strokes, in order to supply vessel fuel to the engine. Use the full movement of the lever. Only the last few degrees of motion will actually pump fuel.
