Changing Fuel filters on perkins 4.270d

IMG 2230

I changed the fuel filters on Nora. The port engine is a 4.270d as opposed to the starboard one is just a 4.270. Apparently both are marinesed combine harvester engines. 1960 and 1961.

The manual pump is different on this side. It’s a plastic cylinder than unscrews then acts as a piston. It took 170 pumps to bleed both filters from empty.

The filters even have little handles to pull out.

It took 10 minutes in total to change both filters, Bleed them and start the engine.

I did not replace the o rings.

sneaking off work to the beach

I had to go pick up some furniture that I’d bought online yesterday morning. It was so nice I ended up talking the dog for a walk along Aldeburgh beach.

The sculpture on the beach is pretty cool.

This blog is seriously lacking in owner attention….

I do neglect this blog badly. Still blogging about our latest building project though.
