94 7.3L IDI will not start
I have a 1994 IDI factory turbo 4X4 Manual transmission.
Three days ago I parked my truck everything was normal, yesterday it will not start just cranks, no popping,no smoke, no trying to start, nothing but cranking over and over and over.
I live in central CA so cold weather is not the problem (100 degres)
Both batteries fully charged
after reading other threads most advice was a bad relay/glow plug controller, so i replaced both also replaced fuel filter and air filter I filled the filter with diesel. Still nothing but cranking, won't start, pop, snort, or anything. Today I pushed in the valve on top of fuel filter cranked it and fuel came out, so then I installed clear lines from filter to fuel rail(grey lines it is IDI) and from fuel rail to injector pump. Iused longer lines with a loop in them. Cranked it over fuel came into both lines but never filled them up. There are sites for adjusting injector pump but they state it is for preformance. Mine is not preforming at all. please do not give me advice like Dump your IDI and get a powerstroke.This is my truck and I love it, and do not have the money.
Any advice on adjusting, or tweaking, or repairs would be nice. I spent all my money on the selonid and controller. one glow plug bad #5 cylinder (drivers side front) did an ohm test on them all and checked wiring harness & connectors with a DC meter all ok Thanks
