I tapped the pin with a punch to get it to the right place, the injector pump came right out. I soaked the pin with wd40 and slid it back and forth until it moved freely. Put the injector pump back on, rebled the system, cranked and finally saw diesel
spurting out of the injector pump. Put the fuel
lines back on and she started right up and ran perfectly.
For anyone with a universal diesel
, this should be part of trouble shooting fuel delivery
problems. I just saw a youtube video of the same issue on a Kubota tractor engine
Thanks everyone for your help!
I'm still trying to figure out what the black stuff is on top of my block?? I'm thinking it might be a leak in the injector or something.
Excellent outcome congratulations!
In regards to the black stuff. In the first photo
you posted it looks like something that was spilled on the engine. Whoever did it, poor form to paint
However - if the paint
has been there a while it indicates whatever it is the engine isn't making any more. I doubt it is something coming from injectors.
Personally, I would clean it up, run it a while and check, back later.
