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

Some Disel 911 might be in order, too.
