Did you use any after run oil in the motor before it sat? The alcohol in the fuel causes condensation inside the motor if it is left with fuel in the motor. I normally spray WD-40 into the glow plug hole and into the carb and crank the motor for about 10 seconds. I do this 3 times and then do it once more with after run oil. The motor starts a lot easier after it has been sitting. You could try spraying some WD-40 into the motor and cranking it over. There could be some rust inside the motor.

Engine turns over but will not start.fuel smoke from glow plugs visible.fuel pump sounds when you turn the key on

I think you're seeing the smoke from the pistons compressing the fuel. Your glow plugs may not actually be working, time to put a meter on them, or cycle the ignition 3 or 4 times to let the glow plugs heat up really good then try to fire it over...plugs may be bad if it starts after cycling 3 or 4 times....Also maybe it's bad fuel, give a small shot of ether into the intake while cranking, if you have water in your fuel that ether will make it fire. Just a one second squirt though, too much ether on a diesel engine can kill it.

Got spark got gas want fire at all

chances are the carb is not set properly. turn the screw on the carb all the way in then back it out 1 1/4 turns. as a trick you can spray WD40 in the carb to start it too. if you can get Either, that works best. you may need to adjust the screw to get it to run at peak performance. adjust it in 1/4 turn increments.

Colt diesel takes a long time to start. glow plugs and battery are new. some one suggested glowplug relays or the black box. what can i do to check if its any of the two or what do you recommend i do

if the ignition controls the amount of time glow plugs are on for flick the ignition off and on 3-5 times each time letting the glow plug symbol glow untill it turns off then try starting. if its still slow to fire your glow plugs are not working at all. start by backtracing the glow plugs from the adjoining bar back to wherever it comes from for breaks, then replace your glow plug relay in the fuse box usually.

if its manual glowing just glow it for 10-12 seconds and try.if its not firing then the glows arent getting the power they need

remove the glow plugs and check for hydraulic lock
diesel can leak into the combustion chambers and will not allow the piston past tdc

I had the same problem with the single oven, It the voltage feeding the oven, it like to be 120 or above if it drops below 120 then this problem occurs. I had ever thing checked, gas pressure, and the oven. Electrician installed a voltage regulator on that circuit.

Trouble startin , does not go full throttle and keeps stoppin.

First make sure you have about 1mm gap on carb opening and fine tune with trims. The high end needle can now be turned in about 1/4 of a turn and start. Keep trying to start while turning high end needle in a fraction in at a time, say after about 5 to 8 pulls of starter. Once engine is started come back out with screw a fraction to see if runs ok if not go back in.

How do i get a 1996 ford f350 diesel to start after its been sitting for years it will turn over but not fire

you may have to flush the fuel system completely and use new fule filter, that also means the injector lines, diesel fuel tends to absorb more water than gas, then purge the system, make sure the glow plugs are working, new oil in the crankcase wouldn't hurt either
