Let gravety bleed out to pump. cranking over with decompression fuel to all 4 lines. It just would not start on pony motor. Thinking 60 year old cat pump just could have some wear and not developing enough pressure to force air through injectors? Pulled with 6030 2 wheel drive JD. just spun wheels. Got 4 wheel drive with duals all around. pulled 50 feet fired up and ran well. used it for 30-45 min to insure all air out of system. shut off, pony fired it right up. Yes with worn pump and possibly needing injectors rebuild would be good. However theres no way to half-axx a diesel. either use it fix minum or do it all ans properly, that would include drive train also. For what I need its just fine. If it dies sell parts and scrap out is my theory. had to redo hard to believe halfaxx was caught in first potty filter

would have been a lot less work if you slightly pressurized the fuel tank to bleed the system---gravity bleed usually doesn't work as injectors are up high relative to fuel level

yep, can give good info here but some dont realize what to do and just keep asking questions and follow the not so easy way. you did tell him an easy fix for that situation.
seams like there needs to be the best answer picked and followed and not just try this and that. but how? thats life.
