Question
500cbackhoe cranks and go dead

Answer
Jimmy, I have no doubt this is a fuel system problem.....BUT, you should check your fuel line first for any contaminates from the tank to the fuel pump, change your fuel filter, and bleed the system completely.....if that doesn't do it, you need to check the output pressure on the fuel pump....But if everything else is clean, replace the pump. You may have corrosion in your tank that is causing the problem.
