Starting Perkins 4-108 after long layup
I've got a 1976 Perkins 4-108, 50 hp and it's been laidup and not started for awhile due to a hip replacement. I blead it and put in a fuel additive to clean the in line fuel system at the first fuel filter along with some diesel fuel, but as I try to start it, it run's for a few beats and then shuts down. Any ideas what I can do concerning this problem, the summer is slipping away.
