    Sometimes something like a line breaking is as bad as running it out of fuel. What some people will do, is loosen the lines one at a time by the injectors, until you are getting fuel to that point.


    Sometimes people will also take a light shot of ether into the air intake tube beyond where the filter sits. BE CAREFUL THERE ARE NO HEATER WARNING SIGNS ON THE AIR INTAKE! Don't use a lot of ether either, as you can put too much and make it lock up. Usually a little is enough to get it started running and pumping fuel normally.

    I'm not a mechanic, but I've been around a lot of old diesel engines, to know just enough to get by sometimes.
