MF Tractor 265 diesel engine fuel problems.

Tractor: Massey Ferguson 265 Diesel Engine: It has been dieing on me regularly since it ran out of gas once. I bled the air out of the lines according to repair manual, it works for awhile running well with no hesitations nor miss firings and then dies again. I pump the fuel lift pump by hand to bleed the system of air and now I get no air or fuel coming out of the air vent plugs, even after a couple hundred pumps. I tap the engine from time to time to reposition the fuel lift pump acuating lobe until I get good resistance in the priming lever. Still no air nor fuel coming out of the air vent plugs. Yet tomorrow I could try again and get air, then fuel coming out. I just changed the fuel filter and gaskets, and the tractor was running after doing so for about 15 minutes. I could use some suggestions at this point. I am new to diesel engines.

I ran into the same problem and found the line to the tank was clogged, take your line loose and see if your fuel flows freely if not blow some air from a compressor back up the line and into the tank. Hope this helpls

    This is most likely your problem, after you clear your fuel lind from whatever, drain your tank out and remove the crud from the inside of your tank or this will happen again and do not run out of fuel again

this tractor was produced in the years 1972 to 1977 and production was finally stopped due to it not having roll over protection , although many were retro fitted with a hoop later last years of production so depending if you have a hoop over the operator seat or not would narrow down your production date

Hi we have a Massey Ferguson Dyna 4 5465 and it was working this morning and then it died we started it up and it ran for about 1/2 a minute when we try starting it now we can hear the fuel pump runs for...

am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting
