Funny story about mud bugs. This winter we left Colorado on are way to Quartzsite and ended up in Louisiana to have some crawfish. We then drove across Texas and on to New Mexico. In Deming one of the few times she was not reading a book she seen a sign to Hatch. She asked how far it was to Hatch as it was lunch and Hatch has some of the best mexican food it the US. I told her it was 45 or 50 miles and really didn't what to go that far out of the way for lunch. At that point all hell broke lose. She said we just drove 1300 miles out of the way to have Crawfish and we can't drive 50 miles out of the way to have lunch. On the way home from Quartzsite I made sure we hit Hatch at lunch but I am still one ataboy button short in her eyes.

That does look interesting. However, I would put that more in the category of a streetcar. Just imagine driving your car and that thing comes over you. "They're here!!!!!!!" "Martians have landed"!

Steve, this is a DDEC-IV. I suppose it could be the fuse that powers the injector solenoids... I have no idea where that is but I will hunt for it. I would have thought that would throw a code, though... the ECM is running because I have a Silverleaf VMS on the dash that reads it and it's getting data. No faults at all.

Cliff, the Davco does not appear to be cracked and I have now triple-checked the O-rings. Also, would't it at least catch a little before the air became a problem if that was the case? It does not sound like it's firing at all.

Scott, I am in the middle of nowhere. I don't have a garden sprayer or access to a selection of fittings to connect it, one of the reasons I was looking for a mechanic with a truck. Just getting a new filter for the Davco took three hours, and I was lucky the closest Napa had it in stock.

Bigred -- I don't use ether as a rule; this was 100% the mechanic who came out to help. He was very good at modulating the spray to keep the rpm down. I'm wondering myself if it's the lift pump. I'm seeing fuel flowing from the secondary, but it does not seem all that vigorous; I have no basis for comparison, though.

I'm going to keep hunting for an air leak this morning as soon as I've made a few more calls. Thanks everyone.

Sean:Don't mean to but in,but I would Go easy on the either!! In the dead of winter ,it only takes a short squirt to get mine going .After putting two or three cans of either ,I'm surprised that the piston's ain't jumped out and swapped holes.I had a deal like this happen to me one time with a Cummins engine and it turned out to be the transfer pump.

Shift points, modulator and trimmer springs adjustments make a 740 shift right, the 740 and 748 are basically the same transmissions on the 748 the fluid control is controlled by the electronic solenoids

But probably not much use for a conversion:

Is this DDEC II or IV?  Are both fuses to the ECM good?  Check engine and stop engine lights come on when you first turn on the key?  I have a DDEC II and DDEC III troubleshooting manual if you want to go down that route.  - Steve
