Customer Question
Engine (Komatsu PC60 excavator)...

Engine (Komatsu PC60 excavator) shut down because of water in the fuel. Have drained water from the tank; hand pumped fuel from the fuel line; replaced the fuel filter; and, hand-pumped fuel through the fuel filter. Engine still won't start. What should I do next to get it to start?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

PC60-7 58001 and higher (don't have the serial number handy)

You have fuel to the injection pump? If so, loosen the high-pressure injection lines at the injector nozzles on the head, and crank the engine until fuel is squirting from the loose lines, then tighten the lines and engine will start.
