I did a stupid thing

I ran my B6100 out of fuel. I kept bleeding injectors untill I got it running again but it was running rough. I figured that there was still air in one of the injectors so I worked it doing some loader work. Higher rpms it worked pretty good but when I got it back to the shop, it was idling rough. It stalls when I crack #1 and also stalls when I crack #2 but no difference when I crack #3. I let it sit for a couple of days and got it running again today. I bled #3 again and did more loader work but it is still only running on 2 cylinders. Any ideas?

Nothing other than following the manual instructions and how to bleed the lines.

there's a much easier way to bleed the system but it's too late now.

When you bled the lines which end did you "crack loose"? Injector end or at the pump?

Are you bleeding it at the fuel injector on top of the cylinder head or at the delivery valve on the injection pump?
With #3 loose, does it squirt fuel?

Shouldn’t be a bubble in the injector. Once the fuel reaches that point, there should be enough pressure in the line to open the injector. Sounds like the injector is might be the problem. Possibly clogged. you Could move the injector to another position and see if the problem moves with it.
