580 should have a primer pump on the block. You loosen the bleed screw at the injection pump. and pump the primer until all air is out.

The you loosen the high pressure lines at the injector nozzles at the head, and crank engine until you have fuel squirting. Then tighten the lines and start the tractor.

If the primer is not working, look for problem with suction line before the primer!
