SOURCE: Just changed the fuel filter on a John deere 1020,

If the fuel filter is full when replaced it shouldn't be necessary. But if you have access to compressed air, put air to the fuel tank and that will do it. Hope that helps ya.

My john deere 1070 loads up under a load and will stall. I changed fuel filter which was loaded with "gunk" and it ran ok for a while then is doing it again.


I am not sure what you are calling gunk but if this gunk is black it is engine oil. The tractor and the engine was built by Yanmar. The injection pump is lubricated with oil pressure from the engine. The seals in the pump will leak and engine oil will get in the fuel system and contaminate the diesel fuel and plug the fuel. Seals will have to be replaced in the injection pump to correct the gunk.

How can I restart my 4020 diesel after it ran out of diesel?


Crack open the line coming into the injection pump from the fuel pump (near the top of inj. pump, towards firewall). Pump the lever on fuel pump until fuel comes out of loosened line. Tighten line. Loosen at least two injector lines at injection pump head. Crank engine with starter until fuel pulses from loosened lines. Tighten lines. Crank engine again. Engine should begin firing on these cylinders first, followed by the remaining cylinders.

2320 johne deere disiel tractor cranks over but won't start


check fuel filter first and that fuel pump works by openig at fuel pump and pushing fuel out just short of injection pump-- if no fuel pushes out prime fuel system by pushing air into fuel tank or using a in line hand fuel pump--- fill tank on tractor so that fuel is above injector pump also helps probably a prime problem

I ran my john deere 790 out of fuel.how do i restart


With diesel, sometimes you have to bleed air out before it will run again. Typically you disconnect the fuel line going to the injector pump, manually activate the fuel pump, or turn over until fuel comes out, then release one or more of the injectors, and turn engine over again. Normally that bleeds enough to start and then the rest of the air gets pushed through.

Skid steerer won 't start


You need to remove the fuel filters and fill them with fuel, and them if you engine is equipped with a primer,,,,prime the fuel system.

Simply filling the fuel after a run out will never start it. The system has air in it that needs to be primed out.

Can't remove fuel injection pump from block


John Deere makes a good product. I was wondering why you are trying to remove the injection pump.
I have seen more problems with a broken fuel line then motor related problems.
If the injection pump looses its prime (air bound) it needs to be reprimed. The lift-pump on the side of the engine, have you inspected that?
What have you done so far that has lead you to believe that the injection pump is bad?
If you go to the section of the repair manual for injection pump timing, there you will find the answer for removing the injection pump. Let me know how your making out.

My john deere 990 wont start. it's not getting diesel to the engine


Check there is adequate fuel to supply engine. Check there is no damage to fuel lines and that the fuel filter is not plugged. Yours is a Yanmar diesel engine withe an autobleed feature which is supposed to bleed the air out of the system automatically. It may incorporate an electric fuel pump also, but some don't. You can prime the fuel system to the injection pump with the manual lift pump if it is equipped with it. After establishing fuel to the injection pump, loosen the nuts that hold the fuel lines onto the injectors approximately1 1/2 turns. Turn the engine over until you see fuel coming from the injector nuts. Tighten the nuts to 24 inch/lbs of torque, start the engine and run at 1/3 throttle untill it runs smooth.

Truck ran completely out of fuel.


is there a primer valve on the pump? it would unscrew and then pull out if it had one. take a look around the injection pump. but i belive that uses an electric lift pump it should not need to be primed there may be something else going on here.
