Long story short, the tractor had a very slow roll over, we got it righted and now it won't start. There is oil in the pan and plenty diesel.

I tried priming the diesel filter to remove any air. The engine turns over but won't start. Any thoughts.... I don't see any other damage than a hazard light. The tractor was probably on its right side with the engine angled downward to upside down for about 2 hours...

I could be wrong but I think if some oil drained past the piston rings while tractor was over-turned then it's possible while attempting to start engine some push rods or valves could have gotten bent.

I thought that too. but the engine turns over quite easy...
Oil did spill out the vent tube however...

do you hear the fuel solinoid clicking when you turn the key on? it should be a good loud snap.

I just tried the ignition and I didn't hear the load click. I have always heard that click whenever I start. Is that coming from the fuel relay, K-1?

the loud click is the solinoid itself. no click means no fuel. the wires are on the right front corner of the engine. those solinoids can get filled with oil and then they wont pull in
