Question about Diesel Farmall Tractor 400,450 Gas & Radiator

1 Answer

I have found diesel fuel in the motor oil my Massey 165 tractor. I'm told it is probably the seal in the injector pump. I believe there is also a pick up pump on the engine also. Could this also be a problem. I also need to find the opening on the engine to locate the timing mark on the flywheel. Could you describe the location of the inspection hole between the housing and the transmission? I think there is a rubber grommet in the bell housing, but I need to make sure that this is the inspection hole before I pull the grommet out. I have a perkins AD4-203 motor.

Changed fuel filter on a massey fergeson 230 now it wont start

OOhh well I guess you've learned that its allways a good idea to prefill your fuel filter when replacing it , see my tip for priming diesel trucks (works for tractors too) , well sounds as if now you got air bound injectors (air compresses -fuel doesnot ) you will need to loosten (not remove!!!) injector lines at head till they bubble as you crank engine over , sometimes a quick method ive used is to " spray" paint thinner (mineral sprits) into air intake as I crank , engine should sputter and eventually start as injectors take over fuel delivery

Massey Ferguson 5455 small oil leak from engine breather pipe after day work the dip stick showing to much oil when cold about 1L to much

diesel engine --- diesel fuel is leaking past the pump seals into the sump and raising the oil level
that is diluting the sump oil and the oil leak is oil/fuel evaporation for extra hot sump oil
suggest that you discuss this with a diesel pump specialist shop as diluted oil is not good for the motor

Massey Ferguson 256 won't start

Hi Dan:
Looks like a diesel tractor, not a doll or playset.
Some history woud help:
- Did you just get this machine?
- Was it running OK and just quit?
- Any smoke from the exhaust when you try to start it?
- Slowed to a stop or loud mechanical BANG?
My Diesels are normally REALLY reliable and only quit (or won't run) for a few reasons
- No fuel
- Bad/contaminated fuel
- Weak battery (Gotta have power to get them to start)
- Bad injectors
- Bad injector pump
The old Case 450 track loader, even with new cylinders and pistons, needs a squirt of starter fluid into the air intake when it's cold.

Yanmar diesel fuel injector leaking

If you removed your injector lines, and then reattached them. You first off got air in the line and you will have to purge them. But, I believe that your injector gasket was probably the culprit and why it was leaking. It sounds like the injector was losing fuel pressure and the pump was unable the push enough fuel to all the cylinders when under load.

If it were me, I would go online to they carry every part for your Yanmar tractor that you will ever need. They also have a tech department too. Since you already have air in your lines, you might as well replace the fuel filter and O-ring and injectors seals. You can also get a service manual from Hoyte for your specific tractor model. If your Yanmar (3000) is like mine, my fuel pump is on the "passenger side" of the tractor and it has a bleed valve on it. So after you replace your parts you can bleed the air out. They are very simple machines to work on. Just in case you didnt know, most Yanmar tractors are a direct cross to John Deere Tractor Models. Any John Deere tractor under 100hp is/was Mfg. by Yanmar for 30-40 yrs or so. Good Luck!!

do you have an injector pump mounted to the engine block? on some the seals on the pump leak letting the fuel go into the engine. only other thing would be the standpipe maybe cracked or broken. it is probally the pump though.not seeing how it's mounted i cant help much more than this.
