Wont start. Stuck

1998 Dt 466 international. Ran out of fuel headed to the pump. It ran while i fueled. It stalled as i tried to drive away. Its done this before, but not like this. It usually starts back up with a jump. I've had the battery charger on it powered by my generatorfor plenty of time.

It tries to start and then turns over too slow to catch

if your fuel lines started sucking air its can be a tough road to fill them back up. Don't spin the starter for too long each time though, don't want to cook the starter in the process.

I'm thinking that's the problem. I'm going to try and plug in at this has station. Maybe my little generator can't give me enough juice. It trips the breaker on the 200 amp setting.

Sounds like you got air in the fuel rail/injectors...

what he brokedown says.. when you run it till it stops then you empty the water separator, and fuel filter along with the rail.. it can take a lot of cranking to get it primed up,, some people install primer pumps on their 466E's for this very issue. the 444E has the same deal, except on the 444E you can unscrew the cap on the fuel filter and fill it back up with fuel.

if your 466 is like my 360, the fuel filters are standard spin ons but are a bit of a pain to get to.. if you can unscrew bot hthe water separator and fuel filter and pour-fill them full that should greatly reduce the amount of cranking you need to get it started.
