I have a marinised Fordson E1A Major 4D diesel engine in my boat. At least, I'm 90% sure it's a Fordson Major but it's hard to be certain as there don't appear to be any definitive pictures of the engine on the internet (although there are hundreds of pictures of the tractors surrounding it!) - and I've spent several days looking. I've identified it by the injector pump, which is a Simms spe 4a75s 497. I'm slightly concerned that there doesn't appear to be a fuel return line running from the vicinity of the injectors back to the fuel tank. Of the many available possibilities, where is the best place on the engine to take the fuel return from?

Thanks

Paul

Return line is a banjo bolt on left hand rear of cylinder head with an internal pipe Regards David

No worries , check out Mermaid engines in England (.com) - all marinised fords and your return when it comes out of head should go back to your fuel filter Regards David

'We sold a Turbo in 2 weeks to a guy in Houston! We also sold the first engine we listed - an old Hatz. It took 2 months to sell but that was OK as we couldn't move it locally. We track visitors to our website and we get lots from DieselEngineTrader.com. Your website really works, it's a great service and we'll be using DieselEngineTrader.com for years to come!'
