Last week I brought my 455 from cold storage shed up to the shop. I put tarp over it and little electric heater under it and boost and it started right up. Now I have had it in the shop done some work on it and it won't start. I have the tarp on it with heater going boosting it. Inside a heated shop.
It has fuel in it.
Boosting it so lots of power
Glow plugs are working.
It smokes white and does fire on smokes black. Lots of smoke
It fire and almost run but will not catch.
Reading the service manual these are supposed to be self bleeding.
Has factory electric fuel pump which is working.
Tarp with elec heater in heated building
Has no elec fuel solenoid it been converted to manuel and all the linkage is in place and getting full movement on the shut off.
I put new file filter in last spring and have not looked at it as it started when I brought it into the shop.
It has lots of blow by so I'm guessing compression isn't at peak. But it started with only dozen turns at only few degree above freezing with heater under tarp. I can't figure why it won't start now. . It should flash up.
Other than loosening injector lines is there any trick to bleeding the little beast??
