The lift pump doesn't require much in the way of pressure. I think the ones I buy are in the range of 3 to 5 psi. range.
There are some very reasonable here. I can't promote any of these but would be will to try them. Just make sure they are diesel compatible.
Thanks for the info. Even at $40 it isn't to bad at all. I looked at a couple in the $60 on up range but they were more of a transfer pump. I just might try that $10 one and if it works can get a better one later if necessary. First thing is going to be clean up the injectors.
A good friend is a real good diesel mechanic on large farm equipment, mainly IH but will work on anything as the principal is the same. I call always call on him to if I get stuck solid.
Thanks for all the advise. Have learned a lot but still have a long ways to go for sure. I forgot about an older Ford truck with an International V8 diesel that ate glow plugs like they were candy. Got it cheep from a neighbor to pull a 38' goose neck hay trailer. Owned it about a year.
