Best way to bleed the diesel system 

We have air in the diesel anything over 2000rev and she’s sputtering 

Do you not have a hand primer near the fuel filter ? This may need using. Or check for a small leak on any of the joints you may have disturbed. They may be sucking in air when fuel pump runs.

Check that you aren’t sucking in at the filter.

How did you get on with this? 
you must be sucking air in somewhere, if it was air from the service still in the system I think it would have run through by now . I had the same thing with mine after a service, I hadn’t done the filter up fully. Another common schoolboy error is leaving the old washer in place and adding a second one.

The amount you have been out, any air from doing the service will have gone through the system long ago.

Check for any slight weeping, especially the unions around the filter and the filter bowl.

If you don't have a manual primer pump then the best way to purge the system is to get an outboard primer bulb and connect it to the fuel return off the pump. Connect it via a longish clear hose and into a plastic container. Keep on sucking the derv through the pump until there are no visible air bubbles, then reconnect the return pipe to the tank.

Hi GPSGuru

Think we have found the problem

We think the hand primer pump is letting in air 

So we have bypassed this filter now we will find out in the morning now if it's ok

Been told these pumps go all the time 👍

Thanks for the info

Excellent, sounds about right ! .......... the pump probably failed when you primed the system during the service.

Is the pump part of the housing or can you get the pump as a separate item ?, most are part of the housing.

If there is a long delay for a new filter housing then you could easily plumb in a temporary filter (Racor, Quicksilver, etc)

Don't be tempted to run for a long time with no filter, you can trash the Injector Pump quite quickly

Hi Suzook12

We have two fuel filters on the Arvor so I have only bypassed one 

I have ordered a new part already from Arvor Parts 

Thanks for the heads up 👍
