Well after several hours of 90 degree temps and sticky humidity i got the AC 5040 loaded and got it home, pictures are below. This is before i washed and cleaned it up, we put a good battery in it and tried to start the tractor but so far no luck on getting it to run. i drained the fuel tank and I pulled the fuel filters off today and they are brand new so i wiped off the glass bowls and put everything back together, it got dark on me. Tomorrow i plan on bleeding the lines and hopefully it will start and run!!

It does have the 9 speed transmission, lift does not leak down, seems to be a nice tractor.

Once those get air in the fuel lines they are hard to bleed out.Best way to get it started is to use the manual pump to fill up the filters and lines with fuel and then tow start it with another tractor,may have to pull it quite a ways before it fires up.

I'll second that. The hardest starting diesel after it's had air in to it that there ever was made. I've run mine out more than once and have only got it started with the starter after that once. It was in the feedlot where I couldn't get to it to tow it and I worked my tail off to get that thing bled and started. Every other time, we towed it about a quarter mile. Even if you hear them lope just once and shut them down, it's too late. In fact, the first few times I "ran it out" there was actually still fuel in it, but the crud in the tank plugged the shut off on the bottom of the tank.
