SOURCE: dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.

You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?

SOURCE: my cummins turbo diesel ran out fuel, now it wont start

You need to loosen three (1,3, and 5 are the easiest to get to) of the injector lines at the cylinder head with a 19 mm wrench. Have someone crank the motor until you see fuel come out. Immediately start to tighten the lines, while the motor is still cranking. The motor will start to catch as the lines get tightened. Let it run a few minutes to eliminate the rest of the air.
I've had to do this several times on my 99 Ram because of a messed up sending unit telling me I still had a half tank.
The mechanics at Mt. Clemens Dodge taught me this. Good Luck.

there is air in the fuel line causing the fuel not get to the injectors. you will have to open the fuel ine AT the injectors to bleed out the air while someone turns the key as if starting the car.

Komatsu FD25 running problem with Komatsu 4d95s engine.

cracking an injector line relieves pressure to that injector and if it made no difference it could be from a couple of things
if no fuel dripped from the nut then there is air in that line and it should be left loose until fuel drips from the nut
if you have fuel dripping from the nut and there is no difference then that indicates a faulty injector
cracking 2 and 4 and the engine stopped indicates that 3 also is in trouble
Basically I would be taking the injectors back to a specialist diesel shop for a re-calibration and new tips rather that reconditioned tips
next --when dealing with injectors and injector pipes , if the pipes have been removed and allowed to sit around for a while , they can collect dust from the fuel still in the pipes and so before fitting they should be blown out with compressed air as that small speck of dust can jam the injector needle and prevent operation
The engine is running (albiet at low performance ) but it is running so that would indicate that any mechanical work done is ok and the problems are in the fuel deliver system--injectors and pump
if the pump has been removed the low performance could also be from pump timing so have that rechecked
if it is an inline pump ( where all the pipes come out of the top ) there is a simple procedure to check and adjust the timing accurately and if it is a rotary ( distributor) type pump with the lines from the back end , thee is a special tool and a dial gauge that is used to set the timing accurately
SO being a dealer and a reputation for reliable equipment is essential for your business I would suggest that you now bring in an accredited specialist diesel fitter to tune the fuel system
as to the stop system , a cable is as good as a solenoid as it only stops the fuel and is not part of the problem

I have the exact same problem with my HZJ75, have had injectors and pump reconditioned, checked glow pluga and pre-heater timer, all ok...yet still a struggle to start?? PLEASE CAN ANYONE HELP.

I thing you repaired old injection pump and injectors
Have you check the pressure from the pump can open the injectors?
I-loose the all injector main pipe from the injection pump only injectors side
2-try to crank the engine just start while engine moving if you see diesel pressure where you loose means injection pump looks good, try to fixed all the pipes while engine cranking if the engine refuse to star injectors needs to resit correct opening pressure.
3-check the injectors pressure follow instruction manual book.
4-Check is any leaks all connections.
5-Check engine compression.

good luck

Can u set the injector timing on a sprinter van using a dial gauge in the no 1 injector at the rear of the pump and if so what are the settings please

hi, yes you can,cant remember exact figure think its 0.9mm, use the bolt above where the spline enters the block to adust the timing by ear-give merc a ring for the exact dial gauge setting as it is different for each engine.
