First post here. I've read and searched forever on this problem and I can't figure it out. I've watched every video I can find and nothing seems to address what I've got going on.
I've had my 1025r for 3 1/2 years (180 hours). I was doing my spring service and replaced the fuel filter in the sediment bowl. It was running perfectly before and now it won't start. I had filled the bowl before putting it back on. Ran for a few seconds and died.
From other posts, my fuel pump does not click or make noise. Never has. My system doesn't seem to self prime. I called my local dealer where I bought it. Their suggestion was to just keep cranking and they confimed I'd not hear the fuel pump clicking.
I cracked open the steel lines at the injectors and can see small bubbles coming out. But I've been trying for hours and hours. I've had to charge my battery several times (cranked till battery was dead 3 or 4 times just today)
Other things that have been suggested that I've tried or checked:
Fuel is on.
Filter seems correct and not leaking.
Tank is 3/4 full.
I've tried starting fluid and it won't take off.
When its cranking and not using and starting fluid, it does nothing but crank. Doesn't even try and fire.
I'm so frustrated at this. Something that is this routine and common should not be this difficult. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas. I'm at a loss and about ready to trailer back to the dealer.
