fuel lines

Donna our 231 massy ferguson ran out of diesal.
We can not get it to start now. We have tried to get all the air out of the fuel lines.
But it will not start.
Does anyone have any advice.

Mac You have to bleed the system,first bleed the filter/s,then the injector pump till fuel is coming through without any air bubbles in it,then loosen each injector pipe a couple of turns and spin the engine over with the throttle fully open,when fuel starts to spurt out tighten the pipes and try to start. Good Luck

Jim Mack is right but you have a manual pump pump about the size of a walnut on the opposite side of the tractor from the injector pump with a lever on it you have to pump to force fuel to the bleed points. If you dont feel any pressure on the lever you may have to "bump" the starter to get the cam in position.An operators manual will give you the proper sequence of bleed points. Have patience.Good Luck.
