Check all return lines from injectors, also the fuel delivery pump has two small plastic check valves, if they are not sealing it will lose it's prime.   terry:MackLogo: I suppose you should check all fuel lines!


Can someone help me identify my injector pump. The engine is a EC6-350

This is the tag on the pump

No. 8 is the check valve on the inlet side, there is another under the primer, but not all pumps have the primer on them, makes it harder to prime fuel system.    terry:MackLogo:

According to the information I received from the Mack museum the passenger side power window unit shown in the photo was factory installed. This unit is on its last legs and needs to be replaced.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement unit?

Was there originally a cover on the unit?

Check in with Tom Millard, Oldspwr, on the Brockway site.. He put electric windows in the Brockway 361 he restored for his father.

I didn't realize those were installed at the factory. My 85 RD has one . I will take a pic of the cover that goes on it. I always thought it was something aftermarket because I had an international with the same thing.

Sorry, I'm mistaken. Mine is different.

You never said if the truck was hard to start both cold and warm? How does it start if allowed to set for about four hours after running?


Once started it is easy to start after 4 to 8 hours it does crank more than I like but nothing like first thing in the morning

Right now I can't work on the truck until my knee heals from surgery last week

So right now I am planning the attack on the fuel system, looking for a source for my power window motor and a 60" sleeper

My bride was nice enough to take me to look at some cars over the weekend

Better watch out!  Moma appears to be giving you the signal she is going to slug you if you don't put the camera down.

Sorry about the knee.  Probably out of warranty at this point..

There's a warranty?

How long is that for?

This was my good knee

Hope the healing process goes well.

The knee is healing and I am going stir crazy not working on my projects and dealing with my clients.

Today I installed a pressure gauge into the existing port on the secondary fuel filer that is after the lift pump.

I tried to start the truck and it cranked for a while then lit off but died

I repeated this

On the third try the batteries were getting really low so it was time to disconnect them and charge them.

So much for today, tomorrow is another day

Several posts to this topic on 2/9 have disappeared!

Who deleted them? And why?

They were about the trucks starting issues.

So today I got the truck running with the pressure gauge in the secondary filter.

I ended up checking the fuel filters and the primary was 1/2 full and the secondary was about 3/4 full so I toped them off, added about 9 gallons of fuel, and it was able to be started.

The fuel pressure is about 16 psi at 800 rpm and when I increase the rpm's it goes up to about 21 psi

When I shut the truck off it drops to zero by the time I climb down and get around to the filters

There are to visible fuel leaks any place that I can find

Any thoughts where to check now?
