    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.

    It sounds like there is air trapped in the system yet. Try loosening the bleeder screws and then cranking it over. If air bubbles appear, there is the issue.

    Also, since this has been parked for so long, pull the air cleaner out and see if it is packed full of dirt.
