Hello All! Been a while since I have visited...
Well we have finally gotten settled into our cabin & now after 6 months I decided to go out & fire up the bus on this beautiful & toasty day. I tried cranking it for a little bit just on it's own but it didn't try to start. I then used a little starting fluid & as soon as there is a shot of ether in the intake it fires right up, sounds good, but will not continue to run. I heard that you shouldn't spray a lot of ether at one time as it will cause potential damage. Is this true?
I also heard of something called Heet that helps to start diesel engines. I was told you empty the fuel filters & replace it with this Heet, has anyone used this?
The problem I am having may be old fuel along with the lack of air in the system & the throttle is an air throttle. I was thinking maybe filling up the air tank to be able to use the throttle, would this help? The batteries are new & have a strong charge.
I am looking for any help on this or suggestions of what some of you may have done...
Oh if it matters, I have a CAT 3208 Turbo...
