Recent New battery and starter, it takes about 3 rounds of 8 second cranking the starter for it to fire up when it’s been setting a while. Seems like several years ago (7-8) I replaced the fuel line and check valve for similar issue. Could fuel line or check valve gone bad already or could be another issue? ReStarts fine once it’s been running.

Thanks for input!

-How many hours?
- How old is the fuel?
-Does cycling the glow plugs help?

4300 hours. Fuel is not old. Not tried glow plug cycling.
Once it’s starts it will start again easily.

Believe I’ve fixed it with new fuel lines and new check valve. JD Mechanic said the OEM fuel lines are junk and don’t last very long. Fired right up after replaced. Will see after it sets for a while.

Thanks for all the help!
