Think you should give us his name as it was obviously very very bad advice and could have cost you an awfull lot of money. Not fair to let some other receive the same treatment. This is what forums are for.
Very pleased for you that it is sorted.

I would be interested in which part of the system was the culprit, if your engineer told you.
I had all sorts of fun with my T90 after replacing the secondary filter and couldn't start it. It turned out to be a bubble in the injection pump which, as I now know, has a bleed screw in the body.
Its in a virtually impossible spot to access, behind the oil filtre.
I am just glad you sorted the problem and your first engineer didn't get his hands on more of your readiesVisit MarinaSkip to get rid of your unwanted boaty stuff (and pick up

The engineer concerned is well known to Mayflower berth holders and I would recommend not naming him here because of his character and possible outcomes. I have suggested that Sea talks to the Marina Manager - Charles Bush and gives him the feed back as someone who has been an involantary vistor to Mayflower. If you really want the name please PM me or indeed OP.

Are all BMCs hard to bleed?I bled my friend's 1500 once and had no trouble whatsoever,or was I just lucky?

Some old Volvos also suffer this problm and on a couple of occasions I have had to losen delivery valves to get air out. Try and get manuals cvering the servicing of the engine etc.
I hope you enjoy your dream and if you return with more questions you will no doubt get lots of help. Your engine is one of those that run for ever like in London taxi cabs so should be OK for years to come.Eastern Scotland and beyond.

(Use of the asterisks is because surely the full word would result in one of those 'word removed' attacks.)
