Ooookay. The priming pump was sucking air, there was a hose leak around a clamp, and the o-ring in the Racor
had shrunk (???) and was also leaking. OYE!
After all that, primed through the injectors and it started up. Did have one little interesting quirk ... when I was priming the injector pump
, the priming pump didn't seem to be getting it done - I pumped (one time!) the mechanical pump's manual priming lever and all of a sudden I had one hell of a stream of diesel
coming out of the lower priming screw on the injector. Does that make sense?
Thanks for all the help and input!
