580k stopped and won't start

    I've just run out of light for today, and the backhoe is about a kilometer from the house, so I'll do more testing tomorrow.

    I started it up fine used a little ether as per usual in the cold weather, it was going fine just driving over to the hayshed to pick a bale off the top. It made it most of the way there running fine, and then it just completely cut out. Now it will not start or even fire. I tried priming with the lever on the lift pump, but didn't bleed anything yet.

    I tried a little ether straight in the air intake, but nothing.

    If anything it seems to be turning over more easily than usual, and it seems to sound different...

    I'll try to post a video.

    Coolant and oil both look fine.

    I'll check the electric fuel cut in the morning (I'm guessing there should be +12v when key is on?) and check the air filter too. I'll also try to bleed the fuel system.

    Anything else I should check?

    Thank You!!!

    I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
