HAD BAD FUEL IN THE TANK AND WAS WANDERING WHAT I COULD DO MYSELF

1984 Nissan Patrol/Safari • 300,000 miles

I had recently broke down slowly on the highway just after I bought fuel and came to a complete stop and now will not start at all, I had drained the tank and it was clear looking not thick green diesel and had a brown tinge look about it, real bad looking when is setteled it went clear, I dropped the tank and rinsed it with petrol bolted it back up with some fresh diesel and replaced the fuel filter but still wont start, what else could I do, flush injector pump or something<< thanks

Did you bleed the system? Release the injection nozzle pressure pipe slightly and crank till you see clear fresh diesel coming out and retighten.

Ensure the glow plugs are working.
