    Default 1982 Pierce Arrow vapor lock

    Can anyone provide information on how to restore fuel service to the engine after vapor lock?

    The truck was low on gas - after taking it up a big hill and parking it for the night, I've been unable to start it.

    Starter is good, batteries are good. Fuel is still low, but I did add several gallons.

    The engine is a Detroit 92. Our mechanic said that there should be a manual plunger-style prime pump on the injector pump but I haven't found it and our mechanic can't get to it anytime soon.

    I did read that the secondary fuel filter can be filled with diesel and that can do the trick, but I wasn't able to remove the secondary filter and was skeptical because that's not what our mechanic said to do.

    Does anyone have experience with this?
