wow thanks all for all the input
I tried something differnt yesterday i cycled the lift pump with the air bleed on the injection pump open, it was about 3 minutes before i got fuel comming out .I closed and cycled the lift pump 2 more full cycles then fired the beast up and none to very very little smoke
. it did run soft sounding for about 45 seconds the she hopped right up with nice loud diesel knocking..
will try again tomorrow ,will post what happens?
I am thinking from system being opened for the new injection pump and all filters replaced it needed a good bleed?
If it happens again I am thinking air is getting sucked into the fuel system? will have to check further into it.
leaving tuesday for a 2 week trip dont want any issues
thanks again for all the input jim
