Kabota B7100 3 cyl diesel. Ran out of fuel. Won't start.

Customer Question

Kabota B7100 3 cyl diesel. Ran out of fuel. Won't start. I bled lines and bleeder on pump. And filter. Plenty of fuel. Glow plugs get hot. Wants to go but won't catch. New starter and battery. Running out of ideas. Does not have a compression release valve that I can find. Any ideas?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Heavy Equipment Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I can think of
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Heavy Equipment Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
