Have you changed the fuel filter and bled the injectors ? Not sure of the procedure on this model.

I'm just thinking out loud here.

You might try using a real hot battery. Maybe even 2 batteries? Give it a real good spin.

It could be that it still has old fuel in the lines?

Air ahead of the injectors sounds like the culprit. Priming them is relatively simple, loosen the pipe connection to the injector from the fuel line a little and turn the engine over, when fuel begins coming out tighten the line back up. Repeat with each injector till they are all bled, then try to start it. It may take some cranking before it actually starts.

If you have access to a really heavy set of booster cables and big battery it would be better to add them on also. And don't forget to not crank for more than about 20 seconds at a time to prevent cooking the starter motor.

With most diesels the injectors are self-priming if you crank it over fast enough, or long enough, but this is tough on the starter. I've heard of people starting them using a spray bottle of diesel (my dealer says he uses a small paint sprayer for touchups), or a can of WD-40, down the intake. If it will fire up on this it will take only a few seconds to purge the air through the injectors.

Best of luck.

I had a JD tractor back in VA, the same thing happened. I couldn't get it started. I finally got fed up, called JD dealer to come pick it up. Service mgr instructed me to spary wd40 in the intake while cranking it over. After several second, it started up. Sevice Mgr saved me some dollars.

My 6000 has always been hard starting. You need three things:Plenty of battery, plenty of throttle and plenty of glow plug. Even in warm weather I heat the glow plugs for a full minute and start it at full throttle. Only use the compression release for the first 5 or 6 seconds of cranking and don't use it after that. This is assuming that your injectors are delivering fuel. Fresh diesel fuel DOES make a difference.
Good Luck!
