Not when it isn't running though?

Hey I just noticed that part about shutting the engine down on the first tank. What do you mean by that? Sorry if it's a dumb question.

I get it now! Today was the first time I opened the doghouse.... and that's where the resemblance to this video is. You have to remember I am a 100% novice.

This may sound like a dumb question but a lot of the Ford vehicles with the 6.9/7.3L diesel engines had a manual pump on the fuel filter that helped with priming--does your Ford have the hand pump on the fuel filter?


As far as priming and not starting because it is cold, if you loosen (crack open) one of the injector lines and fuel comes out while cranking then you are primed enough to get started.

No, it just has a tiny little valve that looks like the pump valve on a basketball.
