Anyone know how to get me started again?
I got air in somewhere. Pressurized the filters now till fuel spurts out the bleed screws. Turning with starter but no start. American Diesel version of SP135.

Changed fuel filters, bled incorrectly. Now re-doing. Pressurized until it squirts out the bleed screws, turning and turning, but no start. Battery wearing down. Almost sounded like it would start, but battery tired now.

Exasperated, battery sad now. Deep breath and lubricating with beer.

Did you also bleed the fuel lines at the injectors?

Shouldn't have to bleed the injector lines....mine had air yesterday after final install of my new tanks and manifolds....flinally eliminated the air all the way back to the tanks after a few false starts....then just bled the injector pump...started right up and about 20 times more as I was working on gauge issues.

You must still have some trapped air or air is leaking in from the fuel filter....

Yes - trapped air now. Getting over my fear of fuel and air. Tomorrow start again. The bleeding.

Hey FF, you actually fog your diesel? Thought that would cause a bit of a run away no?
MarlinMike, what a grand looking Lehman it was in the write up. Later issue engine I figured because of the changed logo's on the expansion tank and intake. Mine are 83's and look different. Air cleaner too.

I may be completely missing the point here...

I think the initial inquiry was identified as rust from storage right?
And the danger is sticking rings, and possible fear of glazing?
This I fear is exactly the situation with my lehmans.
Dare I bring up the marvel mystery oil? Or has it been done to death...

Make your own #1 diesel , red die and Oil of Wintergreen to change the smell.

If you will be pulling the injectors PB Blaster does better at cylinder bore rust.
