I got my Detroit S60 re-primed in under 45 minutes having never done it before.  Ran out of fuel pulling into a Walmart and most of the time was spent on two trips into Walmart to get a fuel can and a filter wrench.  I also had to send someone to the station to fill the can with diesel.

let's quell the myth here and now....a Detroit is NOT hard to prime, poke fun at me, ignore me, hate me... if it takes more than 5 - 10 minutes to prime a Detroit.... their is something wrong with the system or the person doing it...

I used a pump up garden sprayer full of diesel, removed the 1/4 plug on the final filter and threaded the end of the sprayer into it. pumped it way up untill i heard diesel returning to the tank and it fired right up. This was on a 6v92 that no one else could get to start because it lost  its prime.

80% continuous is actually considered maxed out...
60% is ok...
less is where trouble comes quicker...sooner.
a little extra and you can throw out a 20 amp cord and help your neighbor... that's what i do Smiley

Ned and Glen, you know I'll be right with you where ever "our kind" is segregated, but Sophia might not look quite as much like Cousin Eddy's tenament on wheels as she did last time.

if after 5 minutes the motor is not running as intact then...using a hand pump and a bucket... u eliminate the entire system...make/add your own return and feed lines...

if then it will not run, u look elsewhere.

if they haven't bypassed the onboard fuel system they are in error of process.

still praying
PS i feel for you, and realize that all the long distance mechanics can be furthering frustrations, I believe the shop u are at are not trying to bamboozle you...they probably err on the side of extreme caution. I would err on the getter runnin and let her develop...till the problem is obvious Smiley
