Any progress? The suspense is kinda killing me.
Took a while to bleed the front line but it finally came clean with no air bubbles. Run the GP for a full minute and give it a try. Black smoke but no fire. Another minute on the GP and tried again. Got a couple chugs out of it this time. Getting closer. Another minute on the GP, backed the throttle down to just under half way and tired again. Tried to fire and kept the starter engaged and it took off. All kinds of smoke for a couple seconds, ran a little rough at first but smoothed right out. Put the sealer in the radiator with a tight cap and turned it up to about 1/2+ throttle and let it run for half hour. Checked out the lift and all worked good. Forward and reverse, Lo and HI worked fine. Both PTO speeds OK. Now to figure out how to power the front PTO for the deck so I can check it out.
After about a long 1/2 hour I shut it down and drained the oil. Will get a new filter and battery this afternoon, then check the oil for coolant after it sits a couple hours. Made me feel real good. The $170+ it cost to have the injectors rebuilt was well worth it. It has turf tires on all 4 so not much good on frozen ground with snow on top. Good thing it is down hill to the machine shed.
Appreciate all the advise and suggestions as I learned a lot but still have a lot to learn about diesels and this Kubota in general. I think I am going to like it.
