the CumminsNo smokeThe plunger on the fuel pump is not pumping up
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 9 months ago

Hi,

Thank you for the response

OK, use wd40 or starting fluid, spray into the air filter, it should run 2-3 seconds

Ok, your system is air-bound or the hand primer pump failed. Should be a bleeder screw on the fuel filter housing

pump the hand pump, until you see no bubbles from the bleeder.

I hope this helps you.

I did the starter fluid and I did start for 2 secIs the bleeder screw a square 3/8 drive
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 9 months ago

HI,

no, it is usually a thumb screw with a slot across the top of the head.

On the filter housing?Does the picture help
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 9 months ago

HI,

OK, this is a mechanical injection pump

crack the lines lose at the injectors, pump the primer pump until you see fuel.

You did fill the filters with fresh clean fuel before installing, correct.
