What is the charge to use your services?

Mechanic's Assistant: The Expert's answer will cost $10 to $100, depending on the issue type and time to respond. You'll see the exact amount on the next page and can decide then. It's way less expensive and more convenient than any face-to-face visit.

OK. I have a 1988 JCP Backhoe. I am just getting it running as it sat for over 8 yrs. I drained all the fluids and replaced all the filters but the fuel filter until last week. I think I had air in the lines so I followed the manuals instructions to bleed the air out, but even after doing so the tractor would run for while ie three or four minutes than die. So I then replaced the filter and bowl but even after bleeding the lines and cranking for a bit I can't see but a small amount of diesel in the bowl. That was yesterday. The battery seemed to be having a tough time cranking the starter so charged the battery all night and even took it into NAPA where I bought the battery and had them ck it, its fine. But now today the starter does not crank over at all. I have checked all the safety stuff that I know of. Wondering if its a solinaid or starter. I don't hear a clicking noise when I turn the key so I'm thinking probably not that but sent a friend of mine to purchase a voltage meter so we can ck. Any ideas?

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

No worries. If the bleed procedure allowed the engine to run but then stalling shortly after, it's an indication that you are still sucking in air from somewhere. Thoroughly inspect all of your fuel lines between your fuel tank and the fuel pump for any leaks or restrictions. Look for any dry rotted hoses that are cracking and could be sucking in air. Also, check to make sure that your fuel filter is sealed properly and not sucking in air as well. Check for contaminated fuel by dumping your old fuel filter into a clear container to look for any type of contamination such as water or debris and sediment. If this checks okay, install a clear hose or site glass to monitor for air bubbles as there should be little to none on both the suction side and the return side. Check all of your fuses and relays. Using a voltage tester, verify that you have power at the fuel shutoff solenoid with the ignition switch in the on position. Slightly cracked loose your injector lines while cranking and look for strong fuel delivery from the injection pump. You should get a little bit of a high-pressure spray from each injector line. If it comes out under low volume or pressure, it's an indication of a worn out and tired injection pump that is in need of rebuild by a few injection shop. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.
