Pacific Cold Thermostart
Any Pac owners out there got a spare thermostart reservoir ( small metal tank with 3 screws and 3 pipes, one which goes to the flame plug in the inlet manifold), it sits high up on the engine nearest the stern.
Mine is missing the little valve or plug from the centre, i discovered this today while wiring a new earth cable to the heater/flame plug.
Flame plug now gets hot, as it should, but after removing the reservoir cover screws i discovered it was "bone dry" inside, no diesel at all.
My thoughts are the pipes to the reservoir are wrongly connected, as it should fill with diesel from the injection pump bleed off return? , then once the fuel level inside reaches the correct height it spills back down the fuel return pipe back to the main fuel tank.
Maintaining a certain amount of diesel in the reservoir at all times.
Any suggestions as to which pipe goes where? or pictures would be a great help.
My Pac starts fine without using this, usual heavy fog on start up and clear and clean when underway..
