 How to bleed injectors after running out of fuel

Does your injector pump have the built in primer pump?

 How to bleed injectors after running out of fuel

Okay, well the object of the primer is to take the fuel from the tank and fill up your injector pump. You need to get fuel back up to your injectors and bleed the air out. There's a couple of ways you can do this. After you verify fuel is getting to your injector pump by breaking the fuel fitting going into your pump. You need to loosen the nuts on your fuel lines at your 3 injectors. Then you can either keep turning your engine over with your starter until you see fuel coming out of your lines at the injectors or you can get someone to pull you in high gear until you see fuel. Then just tighten your fittings back up on the injectors and she should crank.

For one thing never try and restart, usually just enough fuel to left in the lines to restart after refueling. Disconnect the fuel lines to the head, if it has a compression release then release it, when fuel starts coming out of the lines screw them back in, sometimes takes a few times, but the compression release will save your battery and starter, but has to be engaged to start and run again or closed. I hope this helps, you can also look on YT for helpful video's. Good luck

 How to bleed injectors after running out of fuel

Tractor hack of the week.

When a tractor runs out of fuel it's very rarely completely dry, just down to the point where there isn't enough to support combustion.

Fill the tank with fuel, leave it stand a few hours (if possible, overnight is better) then use WD-40 as a 'quick start' and with the handle throttle set to about 1/3 setting try to keep is running on the WD-40 with judicious spurts until it catches and rev's up. Leave it at a high idle for a few minutes to be sure all the bubbles have blown through.

Been doing this for nearly 40 years now, never failed me yet.


Best of luck.

Now that's a great trick Murf. I will definitely keep that in mind if i ever run out of diesel. I assume you're squirting the WD40 in the air intake while turning it over, correct?

Murf's trick does work well. Yes you spray into the air intake. This is one OLE trick I learned before I learned the wise Murf. My brother thought I was crazy when his Allis Chambers would not crank and I asked for his WD 40, helps with cold temps and will also work with small gas engines.

Back in the 90's WD40 got a bad reputation as the propellant was propane butane and they had few law suits with exploded cans and burn victims. Then they changed to Carbon Dioxide propellant and had some high pressure deformation issues with exploded cans in the early 2000's.

They still have a secret formula, they make the concentrate and send it out to be canned by others. They are like Pepsi and Coke sending out the syrup to the independent bottlers Smile

I have used it for all sorts of stuff it is a very handy SOLVENT and is not a lubricant at all but a cleaner. But be cautious where you spray it.
