Added 5 gals, no start. I have the dog house off, and wrench ready.

this is my 1st bleed.

i see a valve on filter housing. is there a pump at all?

My start try did not produce fuel out that valve.

Is there a preferred order of cracking open injectors?
I have access to a big charger/starter. Do I lead that to starter vs on batteries?

I see one other post and have some idea on how to proceed. Just seeing if I know all I need to get it going again. It runs so great.

Do I need more fuel than 5 gals to get it primed? Trying to locate pump. I am at best a hobby mechanic that learns with each new system and situation.

Thanks all!

Using the starter, 30 seconds on 1 minute off, you crank it until it starts. Easier on the starter, take the sending unit for the dirty fuel filter out and use a mighty vac, and pump it until you see fuel. You might have to crack the injector lines and crank it until you get 2 or 3 of them to spit a little fuel out. the sending unit is located right beside the Schrader valve you mentioned. You can actually take the Schrader valve out too, but it is usually easier to take the sending unit out.

Ran dry? Then first pull the fuel filter and fill it with CLEAN fuel then go from there.
