Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

Your problem now at least is undoubtedly down to air in the fuel system..

You need to be sure that the new seals you have fitted with the fuel filter are on correctly...

Remove the fuel filter and check this - and then fill the filter with diesel before fitting ..then bleed the system if its the manual bleed type - if auto bleed (depending on exact build) - then just crank the engine till it fires up.

You may need to slack the injector pipe nuts and crank until diesel comes through - then tighten the pipes and keep cranking until it starts for you.


I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE
