totally stranded..... truck will not prime fuel or start
okay guys I have a problem I am stuck and I need helpI rent it out of fuel yesterday I know that was stupid but my fuel gauge does act up but know this I should keep it that way over a quarter tank at all times. Its got at lesst 4 gal. In now. Anyway I can't get the truck to re prime I don't know what I'm doing wrong I know I got massive amounts of Air iin the lines because I happen to have a hydraulic bed and I took the cap off thefuel tank to replace the fuel sending unit. I've already gone through one bottle of ether sprayng tiny bits at a time to keep the truck running to try to turn the pumps on. I filled up the fuel bowl myself with diesel and then tried it with either and yes the ether burns and runs but the diesel will not burn. apparently the fuel is not getting to the injectors I have checked the oil reservoir in front of the HPOP and it is full, but is bubbling, not bubbling but kind of surging up and down really slow and little. . I have also disconnected the ICP sensor to try to get a start but to no avail.I I have a battery charger hooked up to it really good ones so that's not an issue its cranking over nice and fast, but just not firing up. I would sure like to leave if there's any way anybody could give me advice I would sure appreciate it thanks in advance.
