fuel regulator disassembly?

Recommended Posts

As explained in my intro post, I'm refurbishing a 10,000 mile V11 that hasn't been started in a decade. I removed the circlip on the regulator, but damn if I can take it apart, is there a trick?

No the reg should come out. I's going to be hanging up on an old oring.

Did you get this to come apart ? This regulator is at the end of the fuel supply , so it maintains the fuel pressure @ a constant # . If it stops / stops up the pressure goes to the max the pump will produce .

 When you get this together/fixed/running , use non-ethanol fuel only .

That's a wonderful sentiment, but not really applicable in much of the country, or a meaningfully long voyage.

I soaked the parts in simple green (smart and final brand). Everything came out clean and I blew them out with air. I could not get it apart so I’ll see if there any problems before forcing anything. Thx for your feedback
