You will have to remove the front axle unit / subframe. The engine has balance weights in the lower part of the engine so be careful. Good luck.

Iseki 4320 engine problem. Diesel fuel filling the sump. Seems that fuel leaks into the sump when the engine has not been run for an extended period. We only acquired the tractor recently.

pull the fuel pump and have it overhauled by a specialist diesel shop
the fuel is leaking past worn elements and shaft seals you could always put a tap in the fuel line just before the pump but that would mean remembering to turn it on and off for operations

2008 dodge ram 4.7 ticks at start up. i heard if i put a half quart of ATF in it that i will clean it out and it will stop. true of false

false-- Remember that you require a certain viscosity oil in the sump and any oil that thins out the sump oil will cause damage to the bearings. Check that the oil filter in use has a non drain back valve in it to retain oil in the hydraulic tappets on shut down. The best oil to clean out an engine is diesel oil as used in diesels. The viscosity is right and the extra detergents in the oil will remove all sludge in the engine. The problem is because it is doing the job then the filter has to changed every 5000miles or sooner depending on the condition in the engine. As a point of interest diesel oil can be used in a petrol engine all the time.

Kubota M 5030 2.8 6 cyl. Diesel in oil sump. Why?

Diesel gets in the sump from an seal leaking in the fuel pump through to the drive gear and out into the sump. If it has an inline pump( one where the injector lines are in a row at the top of the pump) the fuel will be leaking past the plunger elements and into the pump sump which then drains back tot he engine sump. IF it is slight but consistent sometimes injectors will dribble when shut down and the fuel will by pass the piston rings into the sump. Talk with a diesel pump and injector repair specialist for any faults particular to the Kubota fuel system

Engine removal and intsalling!!

weather its diesel or V6 petrol you can remove small tin engine sump and oil pick ups then undo all 4 diff case mounting bolts to chassis one at a time remove and put back in only a few turns this then drops diff assembly down then install motor
works a treat!!!

you could be lazy and bend lip of tin engine sump over bolts in rear left side with hammer this works also but still is a bit of a struggle over that diff.
