so, ever since i replaced my fuel filters a week ago, i have not been able to get my 1985 300d started again. i have searched and read all applicable threads, but am having no luck.
i believe my problem is due to two things:
1) the car is parked on an incline (headed uphill). i think the fuel pump lacks the oomph to bring fuel from the tank up to the pump. the fuel pump worked fine before i replaced my filters. i don't wanna roll the car off my lot, not be able to get it started, and have it sitting in the middle of my alley! i have bled and cranked, and bled and cranked for hours now...
2) my primer pump is shot, and i cannot loosen it to replace it. i have a good pump on my parts car, but can't get either one off, as there is little room to get tools in there, and the nipple for the fuel supply line blocks the head of a wrench. how are these removed?!?!
i blew some compressed air into the tank, and i got fuel at the inline filter right away, so i know the tank screen isnt blocked. i have cracked the lines at the injectors and got fuel at each one, but no start! i think that the primer pump is the last component i need to prime the system and get her started again. what can i do?!
thanks guys. obviously i am out of ideas/resources here!
