Re: Diluted Engine Oil

I drained engine oil and do not smell any diesel fuel but really don't know if it would be enough 2 impart an odor. This is my strategy. I let it drain 4 a couple hours until no more was running out then replaced the drain plug and turned the fuel petcock on. In a couple of days I will catch what ru...

Diluted Engine Oil

YM2000 My "Fuel Leak" thread was getting quite long so I'll start a new one given there are new developments. Going back to beginning.....Tractor became harder and harder to start and I had a fuel leak which gradually got pretty bad at fuel lines where they come out of fuel pump but was st...

Re: Fuel leak?

Getting a good flow of fuel from tank evidenced by a huge mess while bypassing the filter. I do leave cap loose. You really got me puzzled now..... My bleeding technique is.....spinning engine with decompression engaged and loosening injector nut allowing fuel to spit out. Then tighten nut and relea...

Re: Fuel leak?

Thanks Norm. Replaced the filter assembly last year due to inability to stop the old one from leaking, so problem probably isn't related to filter, just basically going thru process of elimination to figure out why engine wont start after sitting a day without cracking injector nuts and bleeding. Ov...

Re: Fuel leak?

I'm still determined to figure out how air is getting into fuel lines. Maybe this isn't a good idea but a friend who does lots of Marine diesel work suspects my (brand new) fuel filter assembly could be the problem. He says he's seen them allow air to enter without leaking. So I bypassed the filter,...

Re: Fuel leak?

Looks like no one has any ideas unfortunately. I have a mechanic who can send the pump for a rebuild but I want to feel relatively confident that this will fix problem. Does anyone know symptoms of a weak pump or injectors? Again.... YM2000... Runs perfect.. no smoke. Newly reworked head. After it s...

Re: Fuel leak?

Thanks Winston. My mechanic asked the same question and no...there is no evidence of diesel in oil by just by looking and smelling dipstick. The lines coming from the pump progressively began leaking pretty bad before finally replacing o rings but now not leaking at all. Sure thought it was taking i...

Re: Fuel leak?

Thought I'd resurrect this thread because I stopped the leak by replacing the o rings where lines exit pump but still having problem starting. Tractor will start after cracking injector nuts and runs perfect. Then will immediately start after shut down. But if it sits for a day it requires cracking ...

Re: Fuel leak?

Think I identified problem.....I noticed the fuel tank was partially collapsed apparently from lack of ventilation. Since first post ive learned that the leak is intermittent. I suspect after running tractor a suction develops in tank, then after shutting down the leak stopped and began sucking in a...

Re: Fuel leak?

Thanks Winston. I have screw in style. The leak is extremely slow and isn't really a big deal unless the leak is allowing air getting in if tractor sits for a week or so without starting. You think part #18 is culprit? If so, should this be a relativly easy fix? Thank you

Fuel leak?

YM2000 Having a very slow diesel leak....looks like where fuel lines connect to pump. Nuts are hard tight. Is there an "O" ring or a seal of some type back there somewhere? Also, if tractor sits unused for several days it won't start. Last time this happened I loosened bleed screw on pump ...

Re: Tire rubbing

Mine is like yours. Pins turned inside. Just wondered if a 30" scoop is too wide for these tractors. Once I have two adjusting stabilizers hopefully I can keep it centered. Thx

Tire rubbing

YM 2000 I've read all the posts related to this common problem. Bought a 30" dirt scoop/pan and the darn pins are a mile apart.....way wider than that of my other implements. I have a sway adjuster on one side and just chain on the other. Guess I'll get another adjuster to have one on each side...

Re: Throttle slipping. Tension adjustment?

I knew it.....simple adjustment of nuts on lever shaft fixed it. I just can't accept the principle of.... start with simple and work toward complicated. Thanks again
