The engine was running recently. It had a hard time starting but once it started it ran fine. I tried to crank it over now with banjo bolt on the fuel filter loosened and no fuel came out. I am wondering if the fuel pump gave up its ghost.

Im off of 29 north of cville a ways

So I change the fuel filter and noticed that it was filled with some sort of gunk. This troubled me so I pulled the fuel tank as well as half the country side of england. I took a look at the tank and noticed some sort of goo, I doubt this is normal for an old diesel tank. See the photo. What is the best way to clean out the tank?

Also the intake is the pipe that is part of the fuel level sender unit?

Probably some gasoline or kerosene would work well for cleaning. I would then treat with a cleaning additive and maybe an algae killer.

In the future a good conditioner with each tank will keep things clean.

Then check that the lift pump is working. They die often and change the fuel filter.

Treat with some algaecide and then go back and read post #7.

I'd buy several fuel filters if I were you. I usually keep one in the truck in case I get a tank of bad fuel. I could see you possibly going through a couple of filters before your get things cleaned up.
One of Robert sedimenter's would be a great idea since you have things all pulled apart.
What you describe, hard starting and poor running are classic diesel clogged fuel filter symptoms.

I replaced the glow plugs.
The injectors were working the last time it ran.
I think maybe the algae got stirred up and plugged everything.

Do you have a p/N for the sedimenter, or a link? I need to look up how to install one.

hopefully it is this and not an injector pump.

Finally got to work on the truck. Would it be an issue to run the tubes through a jerry can for testing purposes in lieu of a fuel tank? Pressurization or anything?

Replaced the cold start relay, since i had new relay laying around. Cleaned out the engine of algae as best as i could. Got some algaecide and conditioner. Fuel tank hoses are currently running from jerry can.

So parts replaced so far to try to solve this; Glow plugs, Fuel Stop Solenoid RE54064, fuel filter, Ignition switch PRC2735, Cold start relay AR201, checked wiring and grounding (engine ground seems solid)

Could it be a weak starter? It sounds fine, but I've been messing with petrol engines which i think don't need as much umph.

So I pulled the tank, cleaned it and ran algaecide. I reinstalled the tank and primed the lines. Fuel came through easily. BUT still wont start. Maybe a compression issue? The engine will turn over, but not start. Not sure what is wrong.

One possibility. I have not cleaned the engine thoroughly, but its fairly black and dirty below the injectors. Not sure if its oil, fuel or grime. Could this be a cause for my issue?

I also got a sedimenter. Waiting on the 12v fuel pump as well (not too sure how i will wire it up, suggestions or instructions would be great!)

when you turn the key on is there 12v going to the fuel stop solenoid ?
Asked that question three times now with no answer. Truck will not start is there is not 12v to the fuel solenoid when the key is in the run position.
If there is not the problem is likely the ignition switch

Solenoid does work, I installed a new one. I double checked it. I thought i stated that in a previous comment.
I also installed a new ignition switch.

a few things that could cause the issue that haven't been discussed. your exhaust pipe might be clogged (mice have been known to make their homes all sorts of places) or it could be a compromised muffler ect. Air intake might have a similar problem.



Both are unlikely but it seems like you have fuel and power to the glow plugs so I would run down the remaining requirements for combustion.

I haven't gotten it solved, yet. I was out of state and traveling the past several months, so I handed over to Rick to see if he can get it running. Went through the fuel system and replaced the lift pump, filter housing, solenoid and installed an electric pump as well along with new fuel lines.

I also changed the glow plugs and their wires, and i have changed the ignition switch and checked for any serious grounding issues.

The truck is still is not fully operational. Maybe its something else like what others have suggested, like the exhaust or intake.

Not sure what it is. Hopefully we will be able to figure it out soon

These engine are VERY difficult to bleed after air has gotten in the system. Have you made sure that is just not the problem? What are the current problems?

I don't think bleeding is the issue. Bleeding has been helped new electric pump, Rdavis's filter housing and a new lift pump.

Also new fuel filter. Might need to check that again.

I have been pretty busy for the past week or so since Ive been back so I haven't been able to get with Rick on the exact issues still

It is not bleeding the fuel system. It is injection pump itself. They are very hard to get going. Have you been able to start it? If not, open all of the injection lines and crank.
