Re: Need help bleeding air from fuel rail after ejector change, 1995 7.3L
I just did this AGAIN last night
This is about the 6-7th time I have done injectors/O rings in the last year
I hand filled the HPOP
(Mine was empty because I changed IPR
hand filled the oil rails in each head
let glow plugs run their full duration
then cranked the starter
It took 10 seconds of cranking before fuel was suctioned from tank through filter and into heads, then she fired right up. Ran rough for the first couple of seconds then smoothed right out.
I let it idle for 10 minutes or so looking for leaks/problems
Watch the fuel/oil mixture drip from the exhaust pipes for a few minutes, this is the left over fuel that was in the cylinders/exhaust after the injector change, it will burn off
Next step is to test drive, put it under load and this will purge the air
All grey/blue/white smoke should clear up within first 50 miles or so and then you are good to go! Continue to monitor for leaks.....
