240D Restoration: It almost started!!!

so close!!!

So I've been struggling with getting this car started after sitting for 20 years. Rebuilt the lift pump, cleaned out the fuel tank, pop tested the injectors, checked the glow plugs, and even swapped out the starter with a turbo diesel starter since the original spins very slow compared to new.


What I did today was clean the delivery valves out since only 2 of the 4 were supplying fuel to the hard lines. After I cleaned them out all 4 were supplying fuel properly and bled the hard lines again.

Might try a tow start tomorrow when the weather clears up.
