Welcome to JUST ANSWER heavy equipment. With years of experience, I look forward to doing my best to help. What engine do you have? Do you hear the fuel shutoff at the injector pump click when key is turned on? Fuel solenoid has to open the fuel, before fuel will go to the injectors.Requires battery voltage to open. When did unit last run?

I would be double checking the fuel solenoid and wires to it.

location of solenoid.
You didn't tell me what engine, Perkins will be on the injection pump. Deutz will be on the side of the block. Also if Deutz, it will not start if fan belt is broken, has safety switch.
