Take the tank outlet line off at the first fuel filter fitting, and blow back into the tank, and check the fitting at the filter for debris, These are the two places that debris will be found. other than the filter.

Sorry, I answered this AM, Let me try again. You have to loosen the injection lines at the cylinder head end, and with the injection pump full of fuel, crank the engine until you have fuel squirting, then tighten the lines and digger should start!
