  1. There is no air at the pump or filter.
  2. Fuel is at the pump, but does it need a certain amount of pressure to feed the injectors?
  3. Cracked lines many times. My kill cable is broke, but as I remember you pull it to kill the engine. If you crack the return line at the filter, and push the hand primer fuel is shooting out. From what I remember years ago on my other diesel scout. When you push the hand primer, it would prime up tight, and you had a hard time pushing primer down to screw it tight. This does not do that, it just get stiff and send the fuel back to the tank. You can here it going back each time you prime it. Can I change this return system?
  4. How can I tell if the over flow valve on the fuel filter is bad? Fuel is at the pump, but will not go to the injectors. Help.
  5. Will the six 232 Engine from the 71 or 70 Scout 800 fit in the 66 or 67 Scout 800 ? And did any years of the 800 Scouts have the hydraulic Clutch like the 80 Scouts?
  6. Will be planting behind tiller. That will be about as soft as it will get. Thanks.
  7. I see a 295 Planter for sale. It is missing one of the levers that I think it is for spring tension. There are two levers in front. Will it plant with one lever?
  8. I am going to try this before I pull the pump. I will drain the filters, and used a small tank. I will fill the tank with kleen, and run the return line to the starter tank. That way I can used the hand primer to fill the pump with kleen. I will let it sit for a while and crank the engine once a week.
  9. Thanks for your replies.
  10. I have a Scout Terra that ran . I let it sit for seven years, and now I have fuel at the pump, but I do not have fuel at the injectors. Was reading that the Overflow valve which is on top of the filter can cause fuel not to get to the injectors. When I prime to get air out off the pump, the Overflow valve makes a air sound, and the fuel is returning to the tank. I was told that sound means that the Overflow valve is working. Any ideas before I pull the pump?
  11. I am working on my Scouts projects. So that I can have some fun. I sold my Harley because my Blood pressure medicine and riding was going to end badly. Putting that money in my Scouts.
