    Hi, can anyone help please, I bought a 1989 609 Horse box, it started fist time and ticked over happily, after about 10 mins it stopped. It never started again, it has half tank of Diesel, I changed the fuel filter and primer hand pump and the fuel precleaner with no luck, it`s the 364 engine. any help would be appreciated thanks

    Must be an air leak somewhere. Only a lack of diesel will stop that thing from running

    how do I go about locating the air leak, don`t meen to sound thick but is there a starting place and narrow it down until you find it, any help would be brilliant
