SOURCE: diesel mixed with oil in the sump

You run again the generator but before running, check & mark the oil level. Then stop the generator & wait until the oil settle to the bottom of oil pan. Check the oil level again & if the oil level is higher than the marking before that's means you have an engine gasket leak.You need to replace that gasket.

What year is my MF 40 with 3cyl perkins diesel engine And what the engine number would be, trying to find a injection pump for it. Thanks


3 cylinder Perkin diesels were used for a long period of time in MF units
the mPN is HTS0391- alternate numbers -3639020M1
any accredited diesel specialist shop will be able to get you one or be able to repair and recalibrate your unit
you can mention that it is out of a MF tractor but the details that you want are a 3 cylinder Perkins engine
The original brand is CAV but there are other makes available

How do i align the timing gear on my perkins dk 51280 engine


Timing gears? have you pulled it that far apart? On timing gears there are usually stamped onto the gears a small dot. lign them up. Not sure why tore down so far? If you take off the diesel pump align the timing marks in the small window plate first else you will be in a mess.

Oil sump filling up with diesel in perkins 4203 engine


First thing to check (and easiest) is the fuel lift pump fitted to the back left side of engine when viewed from the front. This is the fuel pump that 'lifts' the diesel from the tank. It is driven from a cam on the engine via a lever on the pump that operates a diaphram. If this diaphram has a hole in it diesel leaks into the engine while still having enough pump force to operate normally. These are cheap enough to replace - whole unit for 20quid. Could also be the CAV Fuel pump that is on front right side (behind timing cover) that has the 4 solid pipes coming from it that feeds the 4 injectors. This is a complex piece of kit that is expensive to replace, cheap to buy a rebuild kit for (PARTS4ENGINES.COM). If the engine is running OK then these would be the two places I would check first. If the engine is running like a bag of nails could be as bad as a cracked cylinder liner.
Good Luck

The gent set is Perkins 135 KVA after overhauled it refuses to start please the injector refuses to supply fuel to the nozzle


Check the fuel solenoid is getting power. It may be locked out by loow lube oil pressure and other things.

ALSO when restarting a diesel one OFTEN must "bleed" the fuel lines at each injector... same as when one inadvertently runs a diesel out of fuel. Crack the connectors at the injectors and crank till fuel comes out and tighten each one. Yes, it is a pain...

Diesel fuel pump/installation


If we're talking about the thing that has a pipe to each of the cylinders on your engine then the answer is Yes, your injector pump must be correctly timed in order for the engine to run properly. This is the part of the diesel that does what a distributor on regular car engine does, namely ignition timing.

The exact procedure for setting the timing depends on what model of engine you have, get a manual from Perkins to be sure.

That said it usually goes like this:
1 - make sure the engine has the correct cylinder at TDC, this makes the gear connected to the camshaft be in the correct position.

2 - Set the pump at the correct position, this will either involve looking at a mark in a window on the pump (standyne pumps), or looking at the keyway in the shaft of the pump, etc.

3 - Bolt the pump into place on the engine making sure the gears/drive meshes nicely. Connect all the fuel lines to the pump.

4 - purge the injectors by loosening each fuel line at the cylinder end and cranking the engine until fuel comes out of the pipe, then tighten it back up.

5 - Crank the engine and start it, check the rpm.

Rank this answer if it helped,
