Hi Brian. My 86 e350 diesel starts and dies after 2 seconds. I replaced the fuelpump and the filter and drained it. The tube to the IP gets diesel.
What`s the problem?

I can do this again and again until the batteries are empty...

I pumped all diesel-fuel out of the tank and filled it up with fresh diesel-fuel. Before I startet the engine again I got all air out of the system.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I use a clear tube between pump and filter to be shure there is no air in the system.

Its an electric 12 V fuel-pump I start before I start the engine.

from your description it sounds like the injector pump has failed. loosen one of the lines at the injector and see if there is any fuel at the injector

Expert:  roy replied 2 years ago.
ok, then it is not air in the lines.
it sounds like the injector pump has failed. you will need to replace the pump.
just to check, the single wire on the solenoid on the pump. turn the key on and remove and replace the wire and see if you hear the solenoid clicking.
