Fuel system priming anyone??
So I found out the hard way today that my sending unit is on vacation. I do know you aren't suppose to starve diesels of fuel and I tried my hardest not to, but I think after multiple tries of starting after putting fuel in the tank, I failed. Incidentally, I could hear my fuel pump coming on either. So, I had the truck towed to the dealer, talked to him about what I tried and so forth. He ordered a pump just in case (but I'm hoping it's just gonna need primed). So, I have a couple of questions:
1. Is there a particular method or technique for priming the fuel system on the 6.0?
2. When I do my head studs and have everything torn apart, am I going to have to go through this AGAIN??
My truck doesn't have a shrader valve anywhere to assist in priming and I was told I need to put "something" in the fuel lines to measure the pressure blah blah blah.....
I trust my dealer and the people working there, but I want to avoid this later when I do my head studs. Any help guys would be awesome!! Thanks!!
