What should fuel pressure be?
Technician: Cat Man, Cat Engine Expert replied 1 year ago
Thanks for the information.
If there is no light. I would first suspect a fuel pressure problem. I see this a lot on these engines.
If there is a low fuel pressure problem, the check engine light will not come on and the engine will have low power. Your engine should maintain a fuel pressure between 65 and 85 psi. There is a plug beside of the secondary fuel filter that is used to check the pressure. If it is low, I would first try the fuel filters if you haven’t already. If it is still low, you may have a failed fuel pressure regulator, which is located on the back of the cylinder head. I have replaced a ton of these for low fuel pressure. It is kinda a known problem. You could also have a weak fuel transfer pump or restricted hand primer pump, if your engine has one.
You could also have a fuel return line restriction. This too will cause low power or a miss.Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.

Transfer pump came with the NEW HUI
Technician: Cat Man, Cat Engine Expert replied 1 year ago
Thanks for the information.
Yes most often they do. But I would first verify the fuel pressure. If it's low I would suspect the regulator. I replace these all the time for fuel pressure problems.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.

Fuel pressure specs are great 70 to about 83 .I have been a heavy Equipment mech.my entire life. I have built most every type engine and power shift trans there are, and pride myself on being a trouble -shooter but this makes no sense to me with the codes present -18-63 -39 with new Hui- actuation sensor
And correct fuel pressure HELP HELP HELP!!!!!!!
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Any ideas? ??
Technician: Cat Man, Cat Engine Expert replied 1 year ago
If the codes are active. All that's left to cause them is an injector leaking oil.
If the codes are not active and the fuel pressure is good. I must suspect a faulty injector. To confirm you would need to have a cylinder cutout test performed on the engine.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
