D19 won't start....

I have a D19 diesel that has always been a reliable old workhorse.

Last fall, I ran it into my shop and did a bunch of tinker work, treated it to a new seat and steering wheel, replaced a bad tie rod end, and checked it over in general. When I ran it out of the shop and parked it for the winter, I thought it had a bit different tone to it, but I spaced it off.

Now this spring it won't start. I cleaned the sediment bowl, replaced the fuel filters, etc., but still no go. Give it a puff of starting fluid and it will fire for a few seconds and quit. I'm beginning to face the fact that the injector pump probably needs to be rebuilt.

Unless any of ya'll have any quick tips, I'll get serious about having the pump done. The tractor has been in our family since 1974, and as I recall nothing has been done to the pump since about 1980. A worst case scenario is YT parts shows a rebuilt pump for $1,000.

I think I'll start with a local fellow who specializes in AC tractors and Gleaner combines. But, he also takes a crew south every year and works the wheat harvest north, so he's about to disappear for a couple of months.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Before you do anything, wrap a chain around the front axle and try and PULL START it !!!! You do have the shut-off knob pulled rearward, yes ???

Have you opened one of the lines going to the head and checked for fuel flow? While the pump is old, I would first check to see if it had lost prime. If you replaced the fuel filers, did you make sure to remove the old o-ring before installing the new o-ring and filter? If you have any fuel lines that show signs of seeping, I would repair/replace them and try to reprime prior to going at the pump. It's an old pump so it may very well be the culprit, but start w possible loss of prime.
