Initial Start Up

On Thursday, April 28, 2019, Michael Grundman helped bleed out the fuel system by pressurizing the tank. After successfully getting fuel out of the filter drain, and then the bleed valve on top of the main filter, we gave the engine a “bump,” and it lit right up.

The glow plugs were not attached, and ambient temperature was around 65 degrees, but we were happy that it lit up that nicely. This video was taken several days later. You can hear the “click” of the control box, and the engine light up instantly.
