Around 2 1/2 psi the carbys float closes off the fuel supply the pressure rises and the pump stops, volume is more important then pressure to keep the carbys float chambers full.

Can't prime my saanyong musso diesel

If vehicle has a MERCEDES MOTOR fuel distribution comes via common rail system, diesel is drawn from tank by high pressure pump and fed to injector rail. FOR any reason if rail pressure drops injectors will not open .Possibility that fuel line has air lock or leakage. Diagnostic equipment will be required to solve certain engine management malfunctions.

Why engine not starting,it got an electric fuel pump ive put on to replace cam pump?

Have you done the obvious like checking fuel flow and testing spark plugs for a good spark ? The electric pump could be over fueling. If you have good spark try a little engine start down the carbi - watch out for blow back. Also check the petrol, it could be old.

Is the fuel pressure OK when this happens? Has the exhaust been tested for excess back pressure or a plugged catalytic converter?

Fuel problem

I would change the fuel filter for starters. Then I would change the fuel pump as it seems that you do not have any fuel pressure. The pump diaphram may have failed and should be replaced.

My truck runs for 10 sec. then shuts down

if it is a carby model you are looking at a rebuild kit, the problem is the needle and seat in the carby, i would install a needle and seat (complete carby kit if you have the time and the money) then to guarantee the job done i would install electric fuel pump if it does not alreaddy have one, this should fix the problem, hope i have helped

The fuel pressure relay in the engine is not working or the fuel pressure relay is not working .
Try to replace the fuel pressure relay or soleniod in the engine area.

IF this does not work , Check the timing of the engine.

1984 nissan 4x4 truck

hi if thats the case it is afuel problem

# replace fuel filter
# remove fuel from pump the one that goes back to the pump remove fuel cap blow threw with compressed air to make sure there is no blockages
# if u can get a fuel pressure gauge check fuel pressure it should be about 4-6 psi
# on the carby fuel where it connects to the carby there should be a bolt take it of and from memory there is a little screen filter check if its blocked and clean blow air into the carby fuel inlet
# on the bottom of carby body midway is 2 nuts facing down one has the main jey in it when u take this off all the fuel should come out of the carby place air nozzle in hole and hit it with high pressure to clear

see how u go mate
