Need advice. Just purchased a used Ford 1210; brought it home on a trailer. The tractor had been setting outside for a year and a half. i have dumped the old fuel; dumped filter bowl - have replaced with fresh diesel. I put in a new battery; the glow plug indicator and plugs are working. The tractor fires and runs for 2 seconds. Any suggestions on where to go next?:confused
Welcome to the forum Nopo Hank! Does it have a spin on filter, and has that been replaced? Have you bled the lines of old fuel, and additionally verified that the fuel pump is working? I'm not a diesel mechanic by any means, but thought I'd mention these things in the hopes it helps you out.
