    I agree with everything said here except loosening all the injector lines. It only takes one.

    That is the way I was shown so I've always done it this way. Next time (hopefully there is no next time) I'll just try with one

    Thanks for the help though!

    I should mention that I tried cracking open an injector, but no fuel ever came out. I cranked it 3 or 4 times (15 sec at a time, with several minute breaks to let the starter rest a little).

    The cock valve on the injector pump is awesome. Tractor started on the first try (cranked 10 sec or so), and I never even got any fuel on my hands.

    Or that would be a for the grease monkeys.

    Ya know this is all new to me. I have a 2810, and have run it dry several times the first week i took delivery. The only thing i did was put fuel in the filter , tighten it up, get on and turn the key. A couple of seconds later it started and i was in business again. This is the easiest tractor i have ever started in this situation. Love my Mahindra! . . .John

    I always start my tractor and let it warm up before changing the fuel filter. If I have a loss of power when using it, I just shut it down as soon as I can get it back to the shop. I only have one small filter with the plastic site glass and two bleed screws and shut off valve. I shut the fuel off loosen the glass and drop the filter, catching any spillage. After cleaning the glass and filter area I install new filter but I DO NOT tighten the filter. When it is almost tight I turn the fuel on and watch that the glass fills. When full I tighten the glass and start engine at a high idle and run until the air if any is out. I never used the screws on the filter to bleed, or cracked the injector lines. If I was going to crack the injector lines, it would be the furtherest from the pump. After 3 diesel tractors and 4 diesel trucks I think I have it down now!!!!
