I am hiring a kuboto D5011 diesel dumper truck hired

Customer Question

I am hiring a kuboto D5011 diesel dumper truck hired for the weekend, and have committed the cardinal sin of running out of diesel. I filled it up but is spluttering with some black smoke and not running, is there a way of priming the injectors or do I need to break the injector nuts to bleed it?
Any tips please to get this running.

yes loosen the lines at the injectors, then pedal all the way down, crank the engine over. you should get a good amount of diesel at the cracked lines. Then tighten lines, crank over again.
