Much appreciated responses all. And good to be back on the board. Odd, I used to post here every 3.5 seconds, or at least it felt such.

The Fuji link also very helpful. Thanks for that

Bruce, hopefully you tell List exactly WHOSE ego got bruised. :)

Will retry the bleeding procedure on Saturday.

Best to all,

Nice to hear from you again. I have a tractor using a perkins diesel engine which I have run dry on several occasions. The secret after priming the injection pump which you have done is to crack the fuel lines where they attach to the injector bodies. (per my instruction manual) a turn or two is all it takes crank the starter until fuel leakes at the injector body. Happens quickly half a dozen spins. Tighten the fittins and she will take off. I guess air pressure in the line keeps the injector pump from being able to pick up fuel.
