Re: easier diesel bleeding

Lostatsi, I'm intrigued, are you saying you can bleed the system without opening any bleed screws? I've never heard of this.

If I understand the concept correctly:
- provide positive fuel pressure via an electric fuel pump
- Use WD 40 to start the engine
- the engine will draw air and fuel through the fuel lines, essentially bleeding itself through the injectors.

Is that correct?
