When did it last run? Could it have had gas added to the diesel tank? If you loosen an injection line at the injector nozzle at the head, do you have fuel squirting when cranking? Not just dribbling?

it has run about a year ago I haven't checked the injectors yet for pressure I am sure that it doesn't have gas in the fuel. but I will check the injectors later tonight when I get back to the shopif it has low pressure will need to rebuild the injector pump? or will it be the fuel pump I do no that it is getting fuel and the fuel filter is not plugged up I have checked it! But not sure about the injectors while turning it over.it seems to try to start and almost dose but won't quite run. I even tried new fuel out of a jug direct to the fuel pump. it is blowing out a lot of black smoke while turning over.Curtis while starting it should be blue smoke instead of black smoke am I right in my other one it is blue when it first starts. I may be wrong but this is what I was thinking?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 years ago

black smoke is too much fuel or too little air. Have you removed air filter element to see if it will start?

I went out to the shop and bled off the injectors and got it started it blows allot of smoke will the turbo cause this? it is hard starting but once it starts it dose smoke allot I think that it was aired up due to the solenoid going bad while it was running. if the turbo is bad will It cause it to smoke really bad?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 years ago

Yes, if turbo is bad, it will smoke excessively! But I thought this engine was natural aspirated and had no turbo!

no this is a turbo charged enginethe LS 170 is turbo charged
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 years ago

I believe you, I just missed it when I looked at the intake manifold! Is turbo truning freely, or is it locked up and not rotating freely?

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I'll check it out today and get back to you about it later today! is there any other things in the turbo that will make it smoke are there sealing rings in to keep it from leaking oil into the impeller?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 6 years ago

No. eotjer air is restricted from plugged filter, or turbo is not spinning up to speed.
