    Hello
    So i noticed a lack of power and eventually machine would stall, now it seems like it willl start every once in a while but when I increase the load it stalls. I inspected fuel filter and it appeared to have a little water in it, I then drained the water seperator on back door. I also pumped about 9 gallons of fuel out of the tank. Then replaced filter, and a couple of gallons of diesel. It would start up again but stall stall out after a short time. I did notice the water seperator did not fill all the way back up and I am wondering if the self priming pump is starting to fail. Is there a set pressure I should get at the discharge of that pump? The water seperator is see through and it seems like it takes a long time for that to fill up.
    Thanks for reading. Let me know your thoughts/ ways to proceed.
    Jim

    Check your suction line for a restriction before you do anything else. Also check for suction leaks on the suction side of the supply pump.
