Fuel Bleeding/Priming
« on: April 28, 2017, 06:20:13 PM »
Hi Guys,
 I replaced the intake manifold which had a crack in it. To do this I had to remove the metal high pressure lines and electrics. I replaced everything and left the high pressure lines cracked a little thinking when I turned over the engine it would bleed the lines for me with a little squirt of diesel and bubbles.
Nothing happened so I fully opened one line and turned it over. There's no fuel at all coming. The car was sitting there for a few weeks.
Question is : How do I prime the system and will I need to buy a manual pump or is there one hiding on me in the engine bay somewhere lol.
Photo won't upload. I try later.
