    Howdy Rusty, welcome to the tractor forum.

    Which model are you talking about? Has this tractor been sitting idle for a long period of time? Does it have a compression release for starting? If so, I would check that the compression release lever is not stuck.

    Is it possible to open the hood and with a smart phone take a video of the engine while you are trying to start it?

    check the glow plugs for power with the key on, using a test light. Did you attempt to start it with "glow plug in a can"?

    does the injection pump have a fuel shutoff solenoid ?, if so, have you checked this for working ?.

    Trebuie in principal aerisit sistemul de aerisire, pompa de injectie are un surub asamic care il slabesti pentru a curge motorina (adica amorsarea intregului sistem de alimentare).

    How did you check the Gp's & fuel system?
    Loosen the lines AT the injectors & spin the engine.. GOT FUEL squirting out?
    Can you take a clearer/closer pic of JUST the engine?
    Just because you have power going TO the gp's, doesn't mean they're working.. either take them out & test them or use a multimeter to check ohms. Personally I DONT LIKE the MM option.. I ALWAYS take them out.

    I believe this is what he was trying to say:


    The ventilation system must be ventilated, the injection pump has an asymmetrical screw that weakens it to run the diesel fuel (ie priming the entire fuel system).
