It ran out of fuel and fuel put back in and the bleed nipple has been turned and fuel coming out, it just won't fire back up. Anyone have any suggestions?

Filter looks clean and when the bleed nipple is turned on the injector it streams out

Have you actually bled the injectors individually while spinner it over?

Single injector, bleed screw on the side has decent flow when loosened, the metal hard pipe I've undone but doesn't seem to make any difference to anything

Sorry, I thought it was a much bigger engine.
Is that not the pump that you are bleeding? Have you tried bleeding the pipe at the injector end ?

I've cracked the nut there but doesn't seem to be anything coming out no matter how many times the engine is cranked, the hard pipe goes to the top of the engine might try it up there

do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
seems to be a bolt missing from the bracket holding what looks like a stop solenoid? :unsure::unsure:
I'd also bleed the line at the injector union until it spurted

I've loosed the union there and nothing is coming through same if I info the union at the top of the engine. Could be a case of its faulty, I have another generator at home so can take the pump off that and see if that solves the issue

Stopper stuck
Not sure, going to have another crack tomorrow and if it doesn't start drag the welfare unit back and swap it with the other one.
Bringing the testers tomorrow so can see what's going on.
If the stop solenoid is sticking is there an easy fix?

The earth terminals on those fuel shut offs tend to fracture over time. You should hear it click when you turn it on.

However would be odd happened at same time as low fuel.

Should just need bleeding.

Do you have fuel to the injector HP pump?

Is the LP pump running?

Is the bypass return taking fuel back to the tank?

As said above ... the mount bolt appears to be missing and perhaps not making earth ?
no amount of bleeding is going to get fuel to the injector if it ain't working

Looks that way.
if the mount is loose, even if it were making earth, it could also alter the throw of the stop plunger :unsure: looks to me like the mount is adjustable anyway:rolleyes:

I took the pump out and put it back in, took pic before replacing the bolt

Looks like a yanmar L100 clone engine.
I have been using the L100 for years on a few gennies so know all the faults.
Original engine would have been genuine yanmar, no idea if it's a clone or not though

is the stop solenoid back in the right position ?? ... it's obviously adjustable by the slot in its bracket to get its stroke right.
