Do not tear into the injection pump until you've checked every other possible problem.

Have you tried starting it with the throttle opened to at lease half throttle.

Check the oil level in the engine, those pumps are known to leak fuel into the oil pan, this can also make them hard to start.

How much fuel does it have in the tank?

Everything turns over , it just won t crank and run . Now that you enlightened me on a few things it may have been because I had the throttle all the way forward . I didn t hear it run . The man I bought it from said it sat up for about a month and he couldn t get it started again . I only paid 1k for it so I m not beyond doing a little work to it . From what I ve heard ( could be wrong) these tractors are almost bulletproof proof . Thank you for the reply and advice .
Side note : if my words don t add up I m trying to do this on an iPhone

We know there's folks from all over here that say things different but you wrote:

"Everything turns over , it just won t crank and run."

I would guess that to most of us here "turns over" and "crank" means the same thing.
The engine turns over but won't fire.
Or
The engine cranks but won't start.
Either way would be less confusing.

1st thing is you don't have a 69 Ford 4000!

It's a 63 model 4000 diesel with 4 spd trans

Your wording is a bit confusing, does the starter spin but the engine does not turn (crank) over or does the engine turn (crank) over but won't start and run.

Pushing the throttle lever full forward is what shuts down that models diesel engine, if the engine will crank over open the throttle to half way and the engine should start, if it doesn't you have air in the fuel system or injection pump issues.

Did you hear it run before you purchased it?

Southernborn27,
I believe there is one more number in front of your 1201D.
Those numbers are the Model number of the tractor that this transmition was originally installed in.
There is a second number that is further out on that casting, but it may be ate off from battery acid (common on diesels of that era). That would be the serial number.

If that extra number is a 4, you have a 63 or 64 Ford 4000 Diesel.
I am guessing that you will find a 2 there as the rear end of that tractor looks like a 2000.
HTH
Keith
