A friend of mine just bought a '96 Ford 1620, 4 wd,3 cyl. diesel with 450 hrs. The tractor cranks way too many times to start...about 10-15 seconds & takes 2 to 3 attempts. Once started & then shut down & left for a while...very hard to start again. Cleaned glowplug connections & re-tightened. Bled filter, then pump, then lines to injectors. Line closest to firewall seemed to have air. Is there something else I can check that may be causing fuel to leak down? Solenoid?
