Fuel gauge showed 1 bar out of 7. Shut down and got a full jug. Had to move tractor to where i refuel and left it running while filling. While fueling, engine stalled. Bubbles entrained from the jug?

Cracked the fuel line at forward injector until fuel showed, Restarted and it ran terrible with no throttle response. Cracked the middle line at the injector and it stalled. Got it restarted and still runs terrible rough. Ran for about two hours with no improvement.

What else can i do?

How much water was in that jug? Change the fuel / water filter and replace ALL the fuel with good clean fuel.


I'd rather die in a BAD gunfight than a GOOD nursing home.

It just sounds like a fuel problem. If not water, than it has to air. Try bleeding the lines at the injectors again to make sure there no bubbles.

Has to be fuel. Bled the fuel line 5 or 6 times. Last time left it cracked wrapped in a rag while it ran (poorly). Soaked dripping rag and no improvement.

Have you tried injector cleaner additive? Just a thought

If you called me out for a service call on it...I would change ALL fuel filters and screen strainers if so equipped...insure that low points in supply lines have no ice ....fill with clean fresh WINTER fuel...prime and bleed per mfr's procedure. If it doesn't clear up and run well within a few minutes...you could have many other things wrong, one of the most likely would be an injector stuck open allowing compression pressure to backflow into the fuel system flooding it with high pressure air. You will have a 100% miss on that cylinder so it's easy to find by cracking the hi pressure line one at a time or just feeling the individual exh outlets if so equipped.


guilty of white privilege : for 55 years I had the privilege to get up and go to work...to help feed the folks that wanted to sleep in.

Great! When can ya be here?

Got a filter @ Carquest today and changed. Looked like the one I took out. Clean bowl and good looking filter. 70 hours early but that’s ok.

Pretzeled my arm to reach third injector and bled there too. After 4 or 5 cranks, got it running. A bit better w a tiny bit of throttle response. However the fuel filter Body is leaking.

I’ll F with it more tomorrow in daylight.

Update:
Hauled it to a diesel shop today. They'll get to it before too long. smile

I had exhausted what I knew to do and will let experts fix it.

My diesel mechanicing is narrow, but its shallow.

Interested to know what they find.

Hope it's not too costly.

Just a wild guess, but did you bleed all the lines or just a few? On my old 3 cyl Ford, when I run it our of fuel, I can get it started if I bleed just one line, but it runs rough and has no or very little throttle response. Bleed the other two lines, and I usually have to bleed the lines twice, and it will crank and run fine.

Moral of story- bleed all the lines 2 times.
