Hi All
Still trying to fix my non running Swing. Reading some of the previous posts about things to check, I got around to the FPR. I read that if the diaphram has hole(s) in it, then a new one is required. After removing it from the fuel rail, I cant even see the diaphram. The FPR does not come apart. All I can see is a thimble like piece with two machined slots in it.
Other than that there is nothing to see.
Can anyone tell me how they have seen a faulty perforated diaphram.
Many thanks, Codge

Hi bud, FPR is a non serviceable componant, but very simple in it's operation, basically, it uses vacuam to hold a diaphragm (which is normally closed) open, perferations in the diaphragm will obviously allow the vacuam to escape, thus the malfunction.
Ideally you would use this ... https://tinyurl.com/ya9f3z79  ... or similar to test how well it holds vacuam, for a rough guide you could just suck on the pipe

Also it might be an idea to check that the vacuam pipe is in good order, as a cracked/perished pipe will not operate the FPR correctly

Hi The Bern
I will do a bit of vacuum pipe sucking tomorrow, and give the pipes a good check over. I was told by a Honda mechanic that the FPR will be defective if the vacuum side of it has fuel in the pipe. It should be dry.
Mine was dry when I checked earlier today. However, I will look at them again.
My suspicion is still the petrol pump or the filter, but its so invasive I am leaving that to last.
Thanks anyway.
