Fuel leaking into crank case

Post by jaydee76 » Mon May 27, 2019 1:22 am

Can anyone help?
I have a WD1 engine, as a donkey engine on a Ruston Hornsby DS80 diesel locomotive.
The loco has not been started since September 2018.
Having tried to start it over the weekend, I had fuel starvation to the firing chamber.
No fuel was coming back through the carb, so took the crankcase cover off.
Fuel is leaking down the governor arm and filling up the oil sump.
Cannot find anything in the manual as to why this could be happening.
Any suggestions?
Regards John.
