Paul,my coach had a problem and would not start,it would start with a shot of ether.
One of the sensors on the engine was bad and caused this.
Too much to type,but we can talk about it at WOG.


Kip,Thomas had a weird no start issue and he added the electric pump and cured it,but after that we changed the engine fuel pump and the sensors and about 10,000 bucks worth of other stuff,rad,CAC and compressor etc.
We thought the issues was fixed but never removed the electric pump.
And thats been several years,so it may not be related.

Dale, I know where you are at. You are just outside of Michigan City. If heading east and still continue to have issues give me a call. I'll have my phone with me to make sure I hear it. I am not your best resource by any means, but I have a ton of tools and filters and about anything else you can think of. Sorry I did't see this last night or I would have jumped in then.

Maybe Thomas remembers if we changed the supply hose for the racor,its a 2-3 foot hose that goes from the racor to the frame,i have seen them suck air.
I think thats the hose that goes to the electric pump.

We were on the top of the World highway in Alaska getting ready to get on the ferry to cross the Yukon River when the bus stop idling and wouldn’t start without either. Got the bus running and did not stop until I get to Whitehorse Yukon where I found a fuel pump big enough in Napa auto parts store. We ran with that pump for a couple years until we did lots of work including a fuel pump at Randy‘s house but I never removed the electric feel pump out of the system. I did have the fuse blow that powered The electric fuel pump one time on the way to WOG, replaced the fuse and it never quit again. Electric feel pump didn’t make it easy to prime the racor.

This morning I checked the fuel pump fuse in the ignition box - it was good. Bus fired right up but still has alot of bubbles. 1) Are any bubbles normal? 2) Would it run at all without a fuel pump?
I'm going to take a look at inlet hose now.

Here's one Thread to get you started (sorry, no pun intended):

That’s actually why I posted the link in the thread above. I thought it may not be obvious that those sensors can do that.
