95 7.3 wont start

i have a 95 f 450. i parked it low on fuel a few months ago. i tried to start it and it wont start. when i spray starting fluid in the air intake it fires. i went and got 10 gal of diesel and put it in there, same thing. im guessing something is gummed up. what should i do?

Are you getting a WTS light?
Is the tach moving?
Any white smoke?

Check and make sure the fuel bowl is filling up. Also check your fuel pressure also.
