It would be best to drain fuel out of tank as it has gone bad by now. replace fuel filter, carburetor may have to be rebuilt, are you wanting to just get running? or driving again? start with this may need to put plugs in it

What is the firing order for a 1984 ford bronco 2

Now you need to know which cylinder is which. If you stand at the front of the truck looking at the engine, the number 1 cylinder is on the left closest to you. The left bank has cylinders 1-3-5 and the right bank has 2-4-6. So number 1 is at the left front and number 6 is at the right rear.

If a diesel truck sits to long could it damage the fuel pump

It depends upon the enviroment the truck is stationed in. If you did not drain the truck before parking it for a long time. It tends to block intake valves etc.

1984 Ford F-150 Starter problem

You have a bad connection. It will pass enough current to keep things running, but the starter load is causing it to burn the spots that are making contact.

I had this same issue with my '86 F-150, and the final solution was to replace the all the heavy cables: battery to solenoid, solenoid, to starter, and block to battery ground. Thoroughly clean the block where the negative cable connects, and the battery terminals.

1994 GMC Sierra stood for 6 years

Well his first mistake was buying a Duramax Isuzu Diesel... But with that said, Diesel has a tendency to grow bacteria in the gas tank. Flush the gas tank and change the fluids in the engine and you should be fine. You may notice that some of the gaskets on the engine may leak now that they have dried up. they will either reseal themselfs in time or with thightening or you will have to replace the gasket. I don't think that will be the case after only a few years though.
