Changed #3 injector and passenger side bank of glow plugs(1,3,5,7), but now its a little hard to start. it takes 3 or so cycles. Any ideas? The truck runs great now, just need some help with the fuel delivery. I also put new fuel filters in.
check the caps of the fuel filters. more than likely, if its running fine now, it was air in the oil. you usually have to crank it for a minute or 2 to get it to fire. then let it run so all the air escapes. but if you still have troubles, make sure the caps of the fuel filters are secured tightly. people dont like to crank them down because they are plastic and can break, but if you leave them loose they will suck air. to properly tighten the top filter, use a 15/16 socket. if you try to use a 3/8 ratchet you will break it and have to chissel it off.
