 diesel fuel

Hey, everyone, need some information. I need to know if I messed up. I've had my Long 350 for a couple of years, and have only used off-road diesel from a local farm supply place. Yesterday the business was closed and I needed diesel, so I called a tractor repair place and asked if it was OK to use regular #2 diesel from the service station in the tractor. He said it would be fine. So I put about 4 gallons in the tractor. Today it ran fine for about an hour or so then started to rev up a bit and back down. Finally it revved down and died. Will not start. What should I do next? I am a novice, any help would be appreciated.

Try changing the primary filter. Road diesel will cut any build up away and can clog up the filter. I guess road diesel has detergent of some kind in it. Sometimes I run road diesel in mine because at times it's cheaper than farm fuel. I've always thought it was the same stuff except for the dye, but I've been told that road diesel if never ran in your tractor can do this.

OK, thanks. I will definitely check the filter first. Maybe the fuel is ok.

you may need to bleed the injectors once you change the filter.
There should be a bolt on top of the filter housing.
take it out and crank until fuel comes out. Tighten bolt.
there is a lift pump to put fuel to the filter.
push throttle up about 1/3 or so to where you normally have it to run about 1200 rpm's.
Then crack all of the injector lines and crank until you no longer see bubbles, or it starts.
If it starts, then tighten the injector lines.
if it does not start, but you see plain fuel with no bubbles, then tighten the lines.
Do not crank the engine for more than 30 seconds at a time.
Give it plenty of rest to not burn out the starter.

Hey, everyone, sorry to be so long in posting. I have been somewhat out of pocket. In any case, I did change the primary fuel filter, bled the lines, tractor started right up. Thanks again for all your help. It was and is greatly appreciated.
