I still suspect it doesn't but am very curious to know the ins-and-outs of the factory-fitted systems on your average 20-40 yr old truck.

It occured to me that as a result of a rather embarrasing self-inflicted moment that manual non common rail systems might even suffer airlocks if fuel is cut


Steve the upshot seems to be, some do, some don’t .......you get more smoke if you don’t. Not got to mine yet as been too busy selling the house, I will get there soon.

Well it’s on and working and should be available for viewings at the Overland show. Can’t show you any photos as I can no longer seem to post them on here.
