BAD DOG Posted April 14, 2012 Share Posted April 14, 2012 Been Trying to get the E9 to come to life after being out of the truck for 5 years now. I've kept the block full of antifreeze all along to try to prevent o-rings etc. from drying out since it was a fresh rebuild before accident. Poured a bunch of oil/Lucas mixtre back through the turbo oil line over the last couple weeks and poured some down through the turbo, oil pressure is coming up good while turning it over with the starter. It's just being a bit stubborn to prime the fuel system, It's drawing a bit out of the filter now, I just came in to give the batteries and starter a break, I need an extra set of hands to blow a little air through the tank whe I try it later. It's a bit tough to get fuel up through the new draw line, not to mention the injection lines what bit of fuel is still in them is a bit stale after 5years. Hope to have it running today or tommorrow. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
