Two tank WVO 1999 Ford F250 wont start
I have a 1999 Ford F250 with a two tank golden fuel systems kit installed. It is an older installation in being that the main tank is the veggie tank and a 19 gallon tank is in the bed for diesel. I recently experienced a loss of power and sputtering in the veggie side so I switched back to diesel and ordered the Racor R120 filter and replaced it. Shortly after I switched back over to veggie the engine completely lost power and stalled. I haven't been able to get it to fire up since. I was told that it is probably hydro locked but I am not sure what that means. I am guessing I probably got some air in the fuel lines but am not sure how to properly bleed them now that it’s too late to prime the filter properly. When the engine does turn over lots of white smoke comes out of the exhaust, a symptom of air in the fuel lines, but I have drained the batteries four times trying to get it all out. What is the proper way to get all the air out and also to push all the veggie oil through so that I can start it off diesel since it stalled on wvo.
Also I have tried ether and that didnt even keep it running. I now know not to use that stuff and will never use it again. But I did try running it on WD-40 and that was useless as well. I emptied the fuel filter bowl and turned the key to start the pump and the diesel side did not fill the bowl back up. However the pump on the veggie side did. Not sure what to make of this?
