Iam a hgv mechanic and everything is fitted as it should be. I am just not used to working on these vehicles if it was a bus or a hgv there is a hand primer get the fuel up crack the injector pipes and away they go .
only sometimes we do use a little easy start if it wont go .
if you need one again you match them by getting same no. lasered above no.6 inlet port.
the best way with these is get some clear tubes that are tight fit to the flow and return on filter housing on the tank side, turn ignition to 2 crack all injectors off pour diesel down pipe using funnel or big syringe, keep pipes above filter housing and return pipe into can of diesel.
with the ignition on and a working fuel pump the fuel can pass through pump and to an injector pipe, get plenty of diesel coming out of pipe, then turn engine 180 degrees to do next injector pipe, then should be able to do all tighten up and crank till flow and return has no air at all in it and should fire up. then the filter should be full of diesel and will be able to reconnect flow and retutrn from tank, but will prob get air in the filter again after running for a bit, take filter of and fill with diesel then should be right.
