MF135 3 cylinder Perkins Diesel, Water in Fuel System

Mike Try again, Tractor stopped while working, glass bowl in fuel line from fuel tank full of water and "rust paste". Fuel filter on left side of tractor also full of water and some "rust paste". Bleed one injector after cleaning glass bowl and emptying filter. Had no spare filter so drained as much water and rust paste as I could - refitted filter. Won't start so bleed one injector line. Tractor started and ran long enough to work another 100 yards possibly 3 to 4 minutes then stopped again. Tried rebleeding injector line again without results. Fuel in tank, fuel in glas bowl, some fuel in filter. fuel came from "cracked" injector line. Do I perserve or is there another, or, other problems, ie fuel pump contamination. This site comments suggest that may be the bleeding sequence may not be quiet correct.Any suggestion and help would be appreciated
ToJo Mike:
It is highly probable that the element inside the filter has
absorbed the water and is preventing the fuel from passing through fast enough
to keep a sufficient supply to the pump.
A new filter,along with making sure there is no more water
or sludge anywhere in the system should cure the problem..Good Luck
