No fuel coming from the injection pump

1359 53
I have a 94 dodge. This is my daily driver. The water in fuel sensor was leaking so I replaced it. I thought that I had the fuel filter filled with diesel because I was getting fuel out of the bolt on the side of the pump. Turns out the fuel filter was not full and all I accomplished was to pump all of the remaining fuel out of the pump. Me bad what can I say.

So I go through all of the steps to bleed the system. The fuel filter is full and with the bolt cracked on the side of the pump I get lots of fuel coming out. But no fuel is coming out of the injection pump. I have cranked the engine over for close to 10 minutes in 30 second to one minute stints. Still no fuel coming out of the pump.

The fuel shut off is working. Both when I crank the engine and if I push it up.

I have read a bunch of the threads on this forum and others and watched videos on bleeding the fuel system. I can't figure out what else I can do other than to keep cranking the engine over.

Are you using the bleeder on top of the filter housing to bleed the filter?

What bolt on the side of the IP are you talking about, the banjo that is for the supply fuel line?

Tie up the FSS and leave it until you get it running.

Crack open all the injector nuts and then crank the engine over. As each injectors starts fueling tight the nuts on each that are fueling. Be careful not to overheat the starter.

With the FSS tied up and manually pumping the LP do you hear the OFV squealing when the pressure gets built up in the IP?

A electric LP is a bad choice the Factory mechanical will outlast any electric one.

Just remove the FSS then putt the arm up and tie it, if you tried starting to much and the arm wasn't pulling all the way up you might have to bleed the injectors again.

Have you checked the prefilter screen?
