- Boat Make
- 31' Eastern w/John Deere 6076 AFM30
Well, some days are better than others, engine has had a slight rolling recently at idle and the other day got worse. Changed fuel filters to eliminate the possibility of not getting enough fuel and low and behold no change. Mechanic says it sounds like the fuel injection pump is going and found out there is no buffer spring inside pump to adjust. Could be a two to three thousand dollar repair and now whoever purchases the boat will get a newly rebuilt fuel pump. Oh well, part of owning a DE boat with a diesel engine. I can not complain because the John Deere 6076 AFM30 has trated me well.
