Starting after long sitting 6 months

I had the starter rebuilt. Took the guy 6mo. Now I have it back on. What do I need to do to get fuel flowing? Turns over good,but no start.

well drain your fuel bowl, who knows how much water is in there, i'd put some kind of additive in fuel that sat that long, and check your hpop res to make sure its full.

you should just turn the key on and let the fuel filter fill up with fuel and it should start right up. if its cranking and not starting check your battery voltage, if there is not a good enough connection it wont start. thats what i would check out first

2000 F250 SD ex cab long bed
6spd trans
south bend 350hp-750lb/ft clutch
6 in lift with 37in Km2 BFG
4in mbrp turbo back single exhaust
TS 6 Pos Chip
DIY intake
SOON TO COME
new injectors
some sort of turbo upgrade

Some Disel 911 might be in order, too.
