Hello to everyone.
This is a 96 f250 modified to run on diesel and wvo.
I erase the fuel bowl and add an electrical pump.
The truck was running good until 2 weeks ago.
Me and my girlfriend are travelling from Alaska to Chile.. we start 3 months ago from Vancouver all the way up to Alaska, Dempster highway and now we are stuck in Whitehorse, Yukon.
We were on our way south and the truck start to loose power... al this was on diesel, not wvo...
This is normal when a filter start to get clogged, so I replace the filter but didnt change, no power and start to smoke blue.
We drive it back to whitehorse to a friend house and since then we been working on the truck checking from the air intake, filters, fuel lines, pump, restrictions, etc.
Basically start strong, but it smoke tons of blue smoke and has no power... i have to drive it 1 block to the garage shop, and was very slow and if I give gas it start to stumble ans smoke more...
A mechanic came with a code reader and recommend me check orings
I did o rings on passenger side and check that were very flat and there was some carb build on the injectors, so I clean and replace orings in all 8 injectors.
Today i finish the job and try to start but couldnt, I try like 8 times cranking from 15 to 20 seconds. The crank was strong but didnt start.
I drain the batteries in the process...
I also replaced the fuel pump.
Before I replace the injectors, drain the rails, also purge any excess fuel/oil from the cylinders with the starter solenoid and glow plugs removed, I did 3 cycles of 15 second .
Tomorrow Im going to try again with longer cranking times, but in the meantime any input is highly appreciated, and if any of you is in Whitehorse and have a scaner in hand, that will be very helpful aswell.
Im working on a friend of a friend garage, but Im afraid I have to leave the place tomorrow..
As you can imagine we are on a tight budget for a year trip so Im trying to do must of the job with the truck...
Thanks in advance
