Hi have a 2006 model Cummins ISMe 420 engine fitted in a Foden Alpha,,, its been out of service for a while we had it running to move about and left it running for a bit and it died,,, re started ran for 10 secs died again,,, drained fuel tank replaced filter made no difference since then I have ran 25 ltr drum striaght to filter housing,,, to test but the smae symptoms it wil crank for 6-7 secs run at idel for 10 secs,,, no smoke,, then start hunting for 10 to 12 secs and shut off,,,, we have plugged in but not insite its texa,,, no faults,,, we sent ECU away to be checked came back no faults,,, I have removed shut off Mag soenoid made no difference,,, checked filter in pump no difference,,, noticed that rtn line at idel seems to have good flow,,, not sure it should have this much,,, my next step was to fir compucheck fitting type pressure guage to pump to check fuel rail pressure on HP side but need to know what the press should be,,, also thought could it be fuel shortage or the ECM detecting fuel problem and shutting power to injectors so was going to check voltage at injectors when running if I knew Voltage,,,any ideas
