Injection pump is getting weak in fuel delivery.1993 f350 7.3 IDI n/turbo XLT
Just started this. I have to squirt a little diesel in intake to get started.
Anyone have any ideas?
Once it warms up, starts every time.
I even plug heater in overnight still
Won't start unless I prime it
If the lift pump is bad it wouldn't matter hot or cold. The engine would not be supplied fuel from the tank.What's your view on an ele fuel pump before diaphragm pump?
Dave mentioned it best. Pull it from the engine and send it in for evaluation. The last rebuild I had was about $650.00 and it's a quick turnaround with usually an exchange unit available.I wish we had a shop like that around here. It's trial and error. U would think it wouldn't run at all if the top pump was bad. One squirt in intake and she runs great and starts right up.
Sheid Diesel in Danville, IL, Area Diesel in Carlinville, IL, DCP Diesel in Memphis, Thompson Diesel in OKC are all reliable shops to use. Most any fuel shop can address Roosa-Master type distributor pumps and offer quick turnaround. That pump only weighs about 10 pounds fully dressed so inexpensive to ship.I see Trinity is out in the sticks. Looks like a drive might be in order.
