Thanks to all for the help. I am still considering the electric option at least to have on board in the event of "next time"

Did you even try the 2 bleeder ports on the injection pump that are in the above pictures?

You probably would have had the same results without cracking the injector nuts. Bleeding the pump should be sufficient. I know it is on mine.

The pump on mine only has one bleeder nut, located forward. I opened that first and cranked a few times and did get some air and then fuel. Closed that nut and no joy on the attempt to start, so just cracked all 6 injector lines, did the two 15 second cranks and got fuel from all six on the second crank. Closed them down and the engine now purrs like always.

You have a Lehman 120 and what kind of fuel injection pump?

I grabbed this picture from another thread, so it's not my actual pump, but it is exactly like my pump.

thanks, haven't seen one like that.


hard to believe the one isn't good enough as the 2 on most seem to be a waste as the forward one seems to bleed the pump just fine.

The electric also aids in the priming process...pump on until that forward filter fills up...a little late but ..I have twin 80 Lehman’s and taking off the oil filter mount allowed me access to the lift pump screws and a bent 1/2 wrench was a life saver for re and re.
