 Kubota B6000 ran out of fuel cannot restart

I have a great B6000 which has never been run out of fuel -- until now. How do I get the diesel to the injectors so it will start. My patience is really wearing thin.

There should be a bleeder nut/bolt on top of the injector pump that you'll need open and let the fuel bubble out until it runs clear. You can let gravity take over or do like I do and pressurize the tank slightly at the fliier neck with compressed air (a wet rag wrapped around the air nozzle works as a seal. A shop vac with the hose on the vent side will be sufficient too) You may also be able--not sure--to keep starting it until it runs (my New Holland machines work that way). Also crack open one or all injectors too when trying to start.

Remember to empty the sediment bowl and clean the filter too as there is a good chance that running out allowed the nasty stuff in the bottom of the tank to go to the filter.

Not being familar with your machine...look for something that looks like a spark plug of sorts but instead of a wire going to it, it will have a steel fuel line going to it. The injectors go into the head or upper portion of the motor. Follow the steel line down to where they all converge into the injector pump.
