Bob, I was just thinking the same thing. And with our dollar pushing US $1.10, it might be time for a road trip south, sucking fumes all the way, just to load up on cheap US diesel!

No, not yet..Had to work the past few nights. Did some chores and hauled 25 gals of fuel today. There is a primer pump, but it appears to not be pushing fuel. Heading to NAPA in the am to get another primer pump..still crossing my fingers. Ill sleep a lot better once I hear it run again. Using this time to start stripping the interior. Got a few buddy's comming over later to help take seats out and get the luggage racks down....

I'm learning a ton about my bus and haven't even scratched the surface..lol.

I just want to hear it run..

Did you close the ball valve off at the filler? It will not build up any pressure otherwise.Once it fires up then you can open up that valve again. I am in my 3rd year of ownership,and still learning these kind of tricks.

I know of these things only because BTDT!  I've screwed up every thing that can be screwed up on my bus...and fixed most of the screwups.  Luke, Gump and Butch Williams (and a lot of other busnuts!) offered 'taylored' help when I was having issues.  I'm only returning the favor. 
Owning a bus is a full-time learning curve...a long curve may I suggest!  Wink
John benefits from our 87 NJT MC9 knowledge base.  I don't know Bo about any other bus model.   However, the repairability of an MC9/DDEC1 is remarkable...as long as one knows what to do.   Easy coach to repair.  Comparatively speaking.   Smiley
John, glad the bus is running!
