Re: Perkins Diesel wont start
You probably have air in the injection pump which is a bear to bleed. Should have two small bleed screws (usually takes an 8mm wrench if I recall correctly or 5/16") Bleed the IP from both screws till you have clear fuel coming out with no air. Then tighten them up and crank while the injection lines are loose at the injectors...once you see fuel coming from all the injection lines tighten them all up, crank some more and should start up if not give it a whiff of ether and she should get going. When bleeding make sure throttle is at max.
