Tom, assume the fuel pump is LH?  Might go ahead and order one along with some new fuel lines.  Looks like I'll need to drain coolant down so I can get the cross over pipe off.?

On my bus cabinets, the overhead cabinets have the hinge on the bottom with simple friction latches (like for a home) holding it. Since they are hinged on the bottom, nothing banging on the door will open it. In the 15 years, never had a cabinet come open or loose anything going down the road. Especially with air suspension, the vibration just isn't there like on a spring motorhome. Good Luck, TomC

Make sure that your fuel shut-down air cylinder is working properly first of all.  Most installations require air to shut down, therefore removing the air line to the cylinder should allow the governor to put the rack into the "full fuel" position to start.  Just hate to see you get into deeper doo-doo tearing into the pump if not needed.  
Good luck.

The easiest way is remove the plug from the primary filter and adapt a garden sprayer or a electric pump from Auto Zone or you can buy the manual priming pump off Ebay and pump a gal or 2 fuel through the system you don't lose the fuel it returns to the tank.

A dry 8v92 can be a bear to prime just filling the filters if the fuel pump is a little weak fwiw prime it good it will fire, the 92 will blow white or black when they lose prime depending on what mood they are in that day.

 It's not the shut down if it was closed there would be no type smoke black or white

good luck

When you turn on and off the ignition from the back, you can watch the air cylinder on the governor releasing the off lever. Sounds to me like you don't have fuel pressure. Fuel injectors need over 20psi to operate properly. Even if they are getting some fuel (like getting white smoke), it won't be enough to fire off the motor. Probably your fuel pump-they are not that expensive. Good Luck, TomC

I'll try and prime today. Have never done it before. I have spin on filters. Working at my storage yard without to much support - whats the easiest way - being its a Sunday followed by a holiday. Was planning a trip next weekend, bummer....

Think I'll start the gen and the air compressor - put air in the bus and make sure the shut down solenoid is working properly - then prime and try again.

Fund a 12M-4-6 in an MC9 that is being parted out. Fits properly and works great. Thanks

It only shut down once, now it will not start. When it did try to run, 30 sec or so, no power, and did not reach full idle rpm based on my ear. I have no tach.
