    Yeah, I've seen that too. I guess you just have to know what's going on. One other thing I've seen with diesels that have done a lot of sitting is fuel racks in the pump stuck in the stop position (or full fuel in 2 stroke Detroits), I cant say on the op's engine, because I have no experience with those. But it is a possibility.

    Perkins can be a little finicky to bleed but talked to an experienced mechanic who said a a small shot of ether after hand priming with no bubbles wouldn't hurt. Small shot is 1 second not 1 can. A lot of people don't pump the hand primer enough. After the bubbles are gone you need to pump about 20 times more.

    Believe me, I pumped it like it owed me money. I haven't gotten back to it yet. Battery is charged though, so I will probably fool with it again sometime this week. Going to bleed the injectors just to be sure I've gotten all the air out.

    I have one of these there is a real fine screen in the sediment bowl MAKE sure it is clean there is also another screeen in or by the electric fuel pump you have to take out a small Phillips screw in the middle of the lid there is a Oring a small one my experience has taught me to change that oring they leak and makes it hard to prime
