When changing the feul filters on a BMC 1.8 is it necessary to bleed the injection pump or just the fuel filter*?

Also, a real silly question - where is the lift pump?

* An issue of PBO Magazine at the start of the year came with a quite good DVD on diesel engine maintenance. It covered fuel filter changing and clearly said that some engines need just filter bleeding whilst some need bleeding right through. But, didn't really give much cluse how to decide which is the case. Not much help for a poor old electrical (ratherthan mechanical) mind like mine  Smile

Hi Andy,

I've always been lucky and only had to bleed the top of the filter housing. You'll find the lift pump on the side of the engine block as it works off the camshaft. You'll see a little lever sticking out the side of it, just push it up and down to manually prime the fuel line. Good luck.
