Did it run fine before the tank replacement? If so it sounds like air in the system

Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 3 months ago.

Be sure you do not have the return and supply lines reversed as well. Try priming and bleeding the fuel system to remove any air in the system. I would need the model to give you the correct procedure.

it ran fine. I will get you the model number tomorrow. I will check the lines also. All off the readings on the cpu are ---- sometimes. We move the wires around a little then they come up.Then when we crank it. Only the rpm goes----

It is a 2007 morbark tornado. Ser number 24627

Thanks for the update. Do you know what cat engine model is in it? Most cat engines have a hand primer pump to pump the fuel into the filters with a bleeder screw on the fuilter housing to crack open or fuel line after the filter while pumping until you get straight fuel out and no air. Then close the line or bleeder and pump some more until resistance is felt and try to start. Let me know
