diesel tractor won't start

I have a international 474 tractor that won't start
it doesn't have glow plugs,and will normally start with a shot of ether
and sometimes a jump start.
but this time nothing going-
turns over good with a jump just no fire.
Thanks for any help..Dave

Crack an injector line loose at the injector end. Do you have any fuel there while cranking? If not open the bleed screw on the injector pump (lower one if it has 2 bleed screws) If no fuel there you have a supply problem. If fuel there you have a pump problem. This is assuming a Delphi or CAV inj pump with gravity feed.

I should have also said that the tractor has sat since August.
I have fuel at the injecter.
For now I'm thinking bad fuel or dirty injecters.
