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

'We sold a Turbo in 2 weeks to a guy in Houston! We also sold the first engine we listed - an old Hatz. It took 2 months to sell but that was OK as we couldn't move it locally. We track visitors to our website and we get lots from DieselEngineTrader.com. Your website really works, it's a great service and we'll be using DieselEngineTrader.com for years to come!'
