I check the check valve cleaned it out check the fuel solenoid and make sure it was getting fire she is still not pumping fuel to the injectors can spray we eat there was start momentarily for about two to three seconds then will shut it back off need to know how to prime fuel pump because one in 14 and doesn't have a problem for the fuel pump so how can I manually prime my fuel pump also and how do you bleed injectors if she is airlock

Good morning, sorry for delay, my name is ***** ***** you for asking your question, I will try and help you out.

Do you have a fuel/water separator before fuel gear pump? Is that the wix filter you replaced?

Do you have another filter after gear pump?

Cummins recommends Fleetguard filters, other brands may have a micron rating to low and not allow enough fuel through, especially if its cold.

Is it possible fuel is gelled what is temp were you are at?

Is tach moving while cranking?

Did you fill filters after changing them?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I replace the wicks with the Wix filter because I thought the fuel filter might have been bad so I replaced it with a new Wix fuel filter and no I don't have a few water separator except on the bottom of the wixs fuel filter the temperature here is 64 degrees warm and yes I feel filters after I change them and I' ve change them out twice and I replace filter on top of fuel pump

Sorry about that

What I would do is remove line from filter before fuel pump,that goes to fuel pump, stick line in a clean bucket of fuel,(5 gallon bucket works good) remove intake piping from turbo,,have someone crank engine over,while engine is cranking spray short burst of starting fluid in turbo inlet,,very little spray will keep engine cranking fast enough to start,,also hold throttle half way down until engine runs on its own for two minutes to clear any air,,once running, re-hook line back to filter head,,hold throttle half way down and start engine,,keep it half way down for 2 minutes to bleed any remaining air.

Both filters should be full before trying to start to save cranking.

It also helps to have a battery charger on or jump start while doing this to keep from burning up starter.

Only crank for 30 seconds at a time resting 2 minutes between starts.

It normally will run within first 3o seconds if you still have issue let me know.
