Water getting into fuel tanks


Recommended Posts

Hope someone can shed some light on my problem. I recently bought a ‘04 cv713 dump truck that had been sitting for a while. Had to put a transmission in it and finally got it on the road. The first day, lost air and had to replace air compressor. Shortly after installing air compressor (15 min), letting the truck idle, it began miss8ng terribly and blowing blue smoke. Changed fuel filters (don’t know when they were changed last, so I knew it would only help) and found lots of water. Drained all the fuel in both tanks and refilled. Next day STILL had water in fuel and fuel tanks. Drained off water again (10 gallons of fuel before it drained clean). Restarted and ran for a day. End of day, started missing again. Parked, let rest and drained another 10 gal of fuel/water. It must be getting in from somewhere. Any ideas where?
