A farm worker ran my 6x4 diesel dry. After refueling, filling the fuel filter bowl complete and also pressing the lever before on the fuel transport pump hundred of times, it still will not start. Obviously starved for fuel. What else deserve to I do? The technological manual claims that the device is self priming yet the lever have the right to be used to fill the bowl. I feel no resistance in the lever before even after pumping over 200 times. Any suggestions to acquire this baby going?Thanks for you assist.KDOregon
Loosen a couple injector lines and also try cranking till fuel comes out of the connection. When I say loosen, just loosen a revolve or rotate and also a fifty percent. They will blow air then bubble a small fuel when fuel comes out tighten them earlier down and begin it.

Apparently, running the tank dry sucked up all kinds of gunk. The filter was completely clogged,covered in goo. Now, after replacing the filter I now have actually zero fuel at the injectors. Loosening the injectors and also cranking endlessly has actually done nopoint.Is there a fuel screen/filter at the tank supply line?Thanks againKDOregon
I wouldn't think tright here would certainly be a strainer or display in the tank yet could be I guess. Is your supply pump running? That can of scorched up the supply pump.
Does the fuel bowl get filled by gravity or is the pump sucking fuel out of the tank? Either means is the fuel bowl filled via fuel? Did you rerelocate the tank and also clean it? John Deere - Parts Catalog John Deere - Parts Catalog
Pull the line in the tank. I can't remember if tright here is a display screen or not, however have had actually this difficulty prior to via one and it was plugged at the pickup.

You could constantly simply blow air earlier with the fuel line into the tank and watch what is does. If it will certainly fire up then just change the fuel filter regularly
The fuel shutoff at the filter didn't obtain turned to off did it ?? Did that last time I changed mine , made it about 20 feet and then remembered what I had done
I went ahead and blew all the lines out, as a preventive meacertain, but it still would certainly not fire up. Dejected, I abandoned the initiative and left everything alone for the night, figuring I'd pull the tank later - 2 of the injectors were loose. Next morning, I turned it over and also it spit black smoke, then I remembered that I left 2 injectors loose. Tightened them up, fired it up and also it coughed & spit then ran smooth!!! I guess the little about self bleeding is true, though I don't understand the mechanics behind it. Anymeans, she runs currently - thank you all for your wise counsel and advice.KDOregon
