    The primer pump - or lift pump - or hand pump - whatever you want to call it, is on the low pressure side of the fuel path. It's only coincidentally attached to the injection pump (IP). It doesn't push fuel into the injection pump, it pushes it to the fuel filter. Loosen the flexible fuel line between the fuel filter housing and the IP. Loosen it at the IP end. Then unscrew the hand primer and use it to push fuel. If fuel comes out the loosened fitting, the hand pump is still good. If there is no flow, the next step is to isolate the cause on the low pressure side. It's likely either the hand primer or one of the fuel screens.

    If there is fuel, tighten that fitting back up. Then locate the individual high pressure fuel lines (steel) that connect the IP with the individual fuel injectors. There's a hex collar that fastens each line to its respective injector. Loosen each hex collar, then crank the starter. What you want to see is fuel spewing out each of the lines. If no fuel, it's an IP problem. If fuel is flowing, it's an injector problem.

    When you go to replace the lift pump, remove the large hex plug first (it's spring loaded), that will make the job go much easier. And by the way, did you know your "caps" key is stuck? Using all caps is considered shouting or bad taste.

    Thanks for letting us know, it helps. Did you know that Microsoft has built in features in the Windows OS to assist challenged users? There are medium and highly contrasted settings just for such cases, as an example. There are also more tips here: http://www.microsoft.com/enable/

    Wecome to TBN.
    This Thread is 2 years old. It would have been a lot better to have started a new thread of your own.
    This is a link to the Nortrac website. NorTrac 70XT 70 HP 4WD Tractor with Front End Loader & Backhoe With Ag. Tires | 70 HP Tractors| Northern Tool + Equipment. Its for the owners manual for a 70hp Foton. While it may not be the exact manual for your tractor it should be close enough to help you out.
