My Daughter has a 501 MF that hasn't ran in around 3yrs. Ive never worked on a diesel engine. I am guessing the gas is old, and she didn't shut it off at the fuel bowl when she last ran it. I know diesels don't have carbs, and instead have something called injectors that can go bad. Can you tell me what to look for, and any tips to getting it started. Thanks.

Like some of you guys DD couldn't believe the fronts didn't have tubes. Like me, she went out later, after I had left, and like me, she couldn't find a hole in the wheels or any evidence of valve stems, inside or out. I tried to pull it last week, but the grass was wet and it wouldn't budge. Im going to, when I next go over there, back up close to it, run a chain to the rear axles of the tractor and up under the front axle, have the front jacked up, and hook it close to the pk, then let it down. The weight of the front end should help the pk pull it. Ill have to go straight till I hit her driveway, then I can take it off and pull it normally, I hope.

They probably have tubes in them, and when the went flat the stems went inside the rim. The little 205 is very hard to get parts for, and it is a diesel.

SORRY GUYS. Its a model 205. Went to look at it today. It has turf rears, and the fronts were both flat. I couldn't find a valve stem in either of them outside or inside. how did they fill these tires?

Do you mean an MF 50? If it's a diesel, it may fire up just by cranking it over on the key. However, I would crank it with the fuel shut off control out til the oil pressure builds, just to lube things up a bit before firing it up. Ben

Is there any way to spray it with starting fluid?

Don't ever put gas in it! First drain the fuel tank and change the filters and bleed the fuel system to get any air out. If it has not been run in 3 years and the engine was running when parked it may start fairly easy. I would try towing it if it won't start with the starter.
