Oh? News to me.If your blowing fuel past your filter , it ain’t your lift pump doing that , they are non-positive displacement... basically a spinning rotor that freewheels and pushs diesel up to injector pump ..
Princess auto even sells the “genuine Deere replacement “
Take your pump off and have it serviced/rebuilt , Or replaced .. they come off easy , just make sure u lock the engine on #1 Tdc , there’s a special pin u need on flywheel house , as your new pump will come set on #1..
U might end up changing up to a Bosch pump - if your 9600 is a late model H076 high horse block , I’d do it
I have a feeling this guy has not actually worked on many 9600s?? Maybe none? Keep listening to the cowboy. That would be my advice for now.The lift pump is below the fuel tank by sediment bowl/ lower filter , as I’m sure u already know .. not causing the problem ,
What u have there is a picture of the hand primer, great job... not causing the problem
Nothing of what we are talking about has a chance of fixing his problem ,
