    Default Bleeding Air - TS1610 Diesel Lines - Believe it or Not

    I replaced the old diesel gas lines on my TS1610. The old lines were cracked and starting to leak.

    After replacing the lines I bled the air from the lines per the process in the operator manual, but the tractor would not start. Seemed there was more air in the lines. After trying to start the tractor for a while I put the tractor on the battery charger to try again later.

    Then I had an idea. The tractor was parked on a slope. The bleeder screw on the diesel fuel pump was on the downhill side. So I jacked up the downhill side of the tractor and let some air out of the rear tire on the uphill side. That raised the bleeding screw on the pump to even slope or slightly on the upper side.

    Then I opened the bleeder screw and a little more air came out. After that the tractor started on the second try. Believe it or not, raising the side of the tractor could have been the needed difference to get the air out of the system and start the tractor.

    Enclosed photos show the slope, how far I raised the side of the tractor, and the diesel lines replaced.

    Here the procedure for bleeding the air from the lines. The manual states this for the TS2510, TS2210, TS1910 and TS1610.

    1) Confirm the fuel cock is open.

    2) Loosen the two screws above the filter filter to bleed air.
    After bleeding screw these tightly closed.

    3) Loosen the eye blot on the fuel line into the pump to bleed air
    Then tighten the eye blot.

    4) Loosen the air bleeding screw on the injector pump to bleed air.
    Then tighten the screw closed. This completes the procedure.

    See the attached photo.
