I have a 98 Detroit that is turning the fuel black and has an awful bad raw fuel smell at idle. Bad enough that you don't want to be down wind of it.

From the wealth of knowledge posted here I have come to the conclusion that I need to check for air in the fuel line and change all the injector seals.

Is there anything else I should be doing as well?

Would like to make this old girl a little more socially acceptable so to speak.... and I prefer not to reek of diesel fumes. smile

'I listed a surplus Watermota diesel on DieselEngineTrader. It took a few months to sell, but I was delighted as the engine was quite obscure and I never thought anyone would buy it!'
