Ford 6000 commander

Rick I have a ford 6000 commander thatís been sitting in a field with old fuel in it for over 10 years maybe even close 15 years.
Other than a fuel filter, oil filter and fresh oil what steps should I be taking before starting this tractor for the first time. Any help is appreciated because this is my first time playing with a diesel tractor.

HarveyW Hello Rick, welcome to the SSB tractor forum.

Does the tractor have a vertical exhaust, and if so was it covered during the 10-15 year idle period? Check that the engine is free to turn over / not frozen.

A clutch left sitting for such a long period is sure to be stuck.

Do you know why the tractor was left sitting for such a long period? Probably a fuel supply problem.

This tractor can quickly become a money pit.
