Self Bleeding Diesel Fuel System
Have had lots more questions about diesel fuel line routing.
Here are a few pictures of an Isuzu 4JB1-T setup, but the same for any diesel install.
Routing = tank, sedimenter, 12V fuel pump, engine lift pump, Fuel Filter, IP, return line back to tank.
Pump wiring from 12V relay =
86 - ignition circuit - white (+) when key is on
85 - ground (-)
30 - Positive (+) from battery (usually taken off main starter lead)
87 - (+) when key is on
No need to ever worry about bleeding the system.
If you run out of fuel or you change the filter, simply switch on the key, wait a few minutes, start the engine, and drive away.
If you get a bad batch of fuel, note the drain screw on the sedimenter.
Drain as many times as necessary until you purge all the smeckley and then drive away.
