1994 chevy 3500 1 ton dump hyd problem when I activate the hyd unit, I can hear the pump running, and it seems to develope a load on the motor, but the cylinder does not lift. I had the dump body blocked up for about 2 weeks to do some repair work, and when i tried , the cylinder would not lift. is it possible to have an air lock in the cyl. how can i bleed it out without having the body raised? there seems to be an allen type bleeder on the pump itself , is this the bleed valve or is it on the cylinder top

There should be a bleeder valve on the cylinder itself somewhere. Otherwise with air in the system, Im surprised no hyd fluid came out the top of the cylinder!

How do I get my 1998 Chevy 1 Ton dump to lift a full load of materials?


Well, if you are not leaking fluid everywhere it can only be 2 things, either the cylinder is not holding pressure internally or the pump is not making enough pressure. I would start by getting the cylinder rebuilt, this is common and usually cheaper than having the pump rebuilt.

1994 chevy 3500 6.9 diesel you drive it acs like running out of fuel half to bleed lines to get air out to start back up


sounds like u got a clogged fuel filter, or you have got a fuel line somewhere that is sucking air in, could be anywhere from the pump back to the tank, if that shows no luck, get a piece of clear hose and put that just before the pump and look for bubbles, the slightest of bubbles will cause it do run rough and stall
failing this and there is no air bubbles i would say your injector pump needs rebuilding but this is rather unlikely unless u have got a fair few miles on it


hope this helps

Fuel pump doesn't work -


the fuel pump operates off the oil pressure switch the first 5 seconds upon starting. to test turn the key to the on position and listen for the fuel pump running. it does this to prime the pressure up and to stat the engine
if not heard replace the oil switch. the way this operates is when the engine reaches full oil pressure the computer shuts off the oil switch and turns on the fuel pump relay to continued the circuit to the pump

it is best to remove the pwr st. pump and vaccum pump assy as a unit which is held to the front cover w/2 15mm head bolt and a support bracket on the bottom bolt next to the block @ the pwr st pump. and disconnect all lines. get the seal kit and replace them @ this time. if you don't and just replace the pump you will probably develop an oil leak where the shaft meshes w/ the adapter.

What is the correct tire pressure for 1994 Chevy 3500 crew cab dually?


It should be posted on the driver side door post, or glove compartment door. If not, If you're running load range "E" or "D" tires, I would run around 80 psi.There should also be a max psi listed on the tires somewhere around the bead of the tire.

After you dump the fuel in the throttle body it will continue to run on its own or die as soon as it burns up all the fuel you dump in? Do you have access to (Noid lights)? Are both plugs attached to the distributor?

Check your lift pump. It is on the framerail. If that is not working check your oil pressure sensor it is behind the fuel filter. The lift pump does not get voltage if the oil pressure switch fails.
