We rode to the range in open cattle trailers standing up.

Done that on wood trailer decks over the years. Works fine and repels water and keeps bugs away.

need a minimum of 11.6 volts to ddec for it to work. Many have had one bad batt and it was one to feed ddec. =engine will crank but not fire because ddec shuts down at 11.6V...Been there.  Bob

The cam washers (spacers) are installed on either side/both sides of the slack adjuster to loosely center the slack so it is in line with the brake chamber push rod.

hence slight lateral movement Smiley

Sgt. Aronson called up a jeep and had me a ride to the arms room to issue a new weapon...everyone else marched home Smiley

just a bit of info first ether does not kill detroit's  if it did there would be none left in the oilfields. i have seen cans of it empty laying around when finally the operator calls for a mechanic...

an electric fuel pump can deliver enough fuel to run a detroit under no load.
but possibly not under full load.

were i you, i would temporarily bypass the filter and try even if i had to put a 5 gallon bucket and a syphoning hose with a fitting directly into the transfer pump.. put the bucket on a ladder...

I agree with Craig and Scott. Air in the line and the fuel just hasn't got far enough up the line to fire and stay running. Air will hold it back if its in front of it but also push it through if its behind it. Home Depot will sell you a garden sprayer for cheap and get it filled with a gallon of diesel take end off hose and shove it on the nipply at the filter and let her rip.

Just curious.  How many people working on the conversion?  Just you and the wife?  I thought my friend and his wife doing their Prevost in 6 months was fast, but guys are phenomenal!

I'm hunching on the fuel pump or an airlock like Craig mentioned. I really wish he could get a garden sprayer hose to slide over the fuel filter nipple because that would tell the story. I've been there and I feel like maybe he still hasn't built prime....
