I have a 73 diesel 3000 and am bleeding the
injectors per the manual after a split for clutch
job. I have pure bubble-free fuel after the filter,
pure fuel at the CAV pump bleed screw, and pure fuel
at the injectors, but it still won't start. The fuel
at the injectors barely comes out, not even enough
to puddle. It did start briefly before I bled any
air out but quickly died. Only a few drops came out
of pump bleed screw. How much fuel should come out
while cranking? What should I do next?

With the pump bleed screw completely removed, the internal charge pump should pulse a clear stream of fuel on the Rt front tire.

OK thanks, I was just cracking open the pump screw some, I'll try removing it while cranking the engine.

Got it running, I just had to charge the battery and crank it a little longer than expected. Thanks for the help.
