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.
