I have had good luck pressurizing the fuel tank with a little compressed air and bleeding straight to the top of the injector pump. I also keep a little pressure on the tank while I'm cranking the engine over with the injector lines cracked open to bleed them. Usually this will start one pretty quickly. :thumbs:


I have ran a Detroit out and it's not any fun to get them going again. :wallbanging:

You can bleed the lines and it should help pretty quickly. I think you can also hold the shut off valve and let if crank over a few times too? Only time I do that is after its been sitting and I need proper oil flow in the oil lines. Once its flowing you slap it back closed and itll start just fine. If you want to use an electric fuel pump you can but remember diesel fuel is harder on pumps. I bought my pump new and after running diesel in it its sounds like a supercharger whining lol
