One thing to remember with a diesel is, they produce no vacuum.

UNLESS you block the intake.  They will suck your arm off!!  In the case of a runaway diesel, blocking the intake with a solid flat object will kill it.  DO NOT use your hand!

Any way you can patch the muffler back up after a good cleaning? Or will you just look for a new one?

I cut and welded a patch over the hole this AM, but the muffler was pretty thin and it wasn't a job for a stick welder so I had some blow-outs. Should have brazed it. I don't own a MIG. Lots of smoke from the holes so I may just replace it.

 

I also re-built the hand throttle with a belleville washer sandwiched into the assy and now I can control speed better.

  Daniel , what does "Runaway Diesel" mean?  I was so angry earlier, I nearly ranaway from it, but I don't think thats what you mean.

That's great news!! That gets MANY MANY good techs!! Glad you found the issue. I'm embarrassed knowing that too, and not suggesting you look at it back when I suggested to check intake vacuum, and flame in the intake. As this would normally be a dead give away to check for exhaust restrictions. Doh!!

That's because that "Deere" was built by Yanmar.

Yep and I think an earlier 330 had some similarities, but I'm not familiar with it.

 Thankx Keith for your help and kind words.  Maybe I had an advantage,by  NOT being a Diesel Tech !

That's a sharp tractor in what looks to be VERY good condition.  Very glad she's a ready worker now!
