I tried the WD40 thing and the motor changed noise and smoked a little with some extended cranking and even seemed to try to start once but, just petered out after about 3 seconds. I have blead eveywhere there seems to be to bleed, but after reading some posts i guess there are particular ways to bleed each engine. I am at a loss, hence the title diesel dummy. Thats why i am leaning towards a rebuild, cause it would force me to learn about this engine and after im done, ill know what i have. dont get me wrong if in the meantime some of your very helpful responses works and she fires up and runs like a top, im sure ill be more than happy to put off the rebuild. I continue to appreciate all of your imput!
