What gear did you have it when you were pulling it?  Was the pavement dry?

 

Dry as a bone Cris.

This Video shows the EXACT injectors I have and how I cleaned them 

 

There is also a spring assy in upper section with a drilling for by pass fuel, I cleaned it as well.

I've repaired the throttle linkage and still not confident with it. After a sandwich, I'll pull it off again while battery charges.

I spent nearly 30 years diagnosing manufacturing machinery--from presses to robots and sophisticated motion machinery.. Some 65 ago yrs when I "super-turned" my first bicycle, I had a knack for anything "machinery". In proper analysis an old saying applies. " "If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and flies like a duck, its Da#$%^ sure its NOT a chicken hawk." In short, you MUST KNOW how something is SUPPOSED to work properly, if you're going to determine WHY its NOT working properly" 

 

I wanted to learn Diesel and knew the guys here would be great professors. They were !!  But starting this contankerous  @#$%^  was giving us fits and I could detect the "head-scratching" in the posts.

 

TODAY IS GRADUATION DAY ----Its running and starting like a Swiss Watch. 

The last problem?---A clogged muffler. You all know, that if you think the MUFFLER is the problem, you're out of ideas!!!

 

Standing beside the tractor, instead of ON IT, and cranking--as I have for weeks--I notice a puddle of oil appearing atop the injector pump housing below the muffler, and getting larger. Now the source of this oil was NO chicken Hawk. It appeared to be coming from below the muffler flange. I have NO smoke from the "tailpipe" thru all this, the muffler is clogged perhaps I remove it I blow air thru it and a water hose with disappointing results. Still, I think its NOT a muffler issue.

 

Still scratching my head , I wander back to the tractor. Standing there a minute or two, I think well, I may as well try to start it.

NO PRE-HEAT, NO COMPRESSION RELEASE, full throttle and I hit the starter. The starter did NOT SPIN 2 Revs and it came to life. Blowing black crap over me, the tractor and then settled down-purred like a kitten at 1000, 1400 and 2000 RPMS like it was supposed to !!!!!

 

Graduation Day---- :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :thumbs:  :wave:  :beer:  :worshippy1:  :worshippy1:  :big_hug:  :thank_you:

It has probably sat in the rain a few times, and the soot settled in the bottom. When I worked for a garage that had a big wrecker, when we towed a big truck for very many miles we would tape the exhaust shut, so that no air would pass through the motr and spin the turbo. If the turbo spins without oil pressure it an damage the bushing in the turbo.

That's GREAT NEWS !!!!!  I'm not a betting man but I would have bet that a muffler couldn't be so bad to to keep something from starting , learn something new all the time

Thankx a lot guys. I know you Diesel guys love 'em, but I have to admit there were a few times that I was beginning to think

you were all NUTS.   :rolling:  :rolling:  I uttered a lot of BLUE language at this tractor and some of it would be Inappropriate for a

bikers picnic !!    

If I can figure out how to post a vid I'll be happy to. Its amazingly quiet without the muffler.(And no smoke at all after it starts)     I cut a 4x 6 inch hole in it and all the perforated tubes were nearly clogged and there was a ton of soot in the bottom. Apparently, the more I cranked, the worse it got because after the 1st day I had nothing from the tailpipe.

 

Everything works---4WD, PTO, 3PT, diff Brakes etc, so this will be a keeper. I had a small, short celebration last night. Theres nothing quite like graduation day.

  Me too Kenny. I was thinking the DUMMY POLICE would be coming up the driveway . :rolling: But, 1)  The verticle pipe had been exposed all this time, and maybe critters built a nest in the pipe.  2) I was out of ideas 3) Everything I had tried had to do with getting fuel/air INTO the compustion chamber, so what about getting SOMETHING OUT? and 4) the 4-bolt flange was easily accessable.

Perhaps there's sufficient blockage that the mix in the chambers was so high, that its was flooding?

 

All I know is that once the muffler was gone , it started INSTANTLY.

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

You've never heard of the "potato up the tail pipe" then!  Shove a raw potato into a tail pipe, and vehicle won't run!

Witness Eddie Murphy in "Beverly Hills Cop".

 

Daniel, you specified "raw" potato.  Do you get a cooked one back?
