Sooo...forgive me for calling 911 but I'm in a pickle...my old moving van is parked at friends' property and they need it moved ASAP for a wedding event but SUDDENLY the miserable wretch won't start! Steps I've taken so far: 1) starting fluid in the air intake - fires but dies as soon as the ether burns off 2) disconnected both fuel tank lines (supply & return) - no flow from either one with the ignition on...huh? 3) checked voltage input to the fuel pump - about 9 volts...hmm 4) read resistance across the fuel pump terminals - infinity OR .048k ohms at different times...wth? 4) put a can of diesel on the roof and connected it through an after-market, $70 inline fuel pump to one connection at the fuel filter (my best guess as to which was the input) and pour on the starting fluid - pig still won't keep running after the ether burns off...same scenario on the other connection...OMG, REALLY? 5) tried to remove the fuel filter (just in case it's clogged) - sucker seems to be integral to the screw-on cap...drowning in diesel from the rooftop fuel can I manage to put it back...starting to HATE life :-( NOW WHAT??!! Anybody know which fuel line from the tank is the REAL supply side (silver, connected to the little canister going to 3 solid lines that disappear down into the head/block OR black, attached to the 'high' side of the fuel filter assembly)? Anybody know how the fuel filter comes out OR if the lid is integral to it? Anybody have any ideas what could be preventing this engine from starting??!!
