Been having issues with our Massey 2745....V8 diesel. Been running like crap. After changing fuel filters a few weeks ago, she ran great....for a few days, then back to crap. When my son Josh pulled the semi out of the ditch, it died. I got her cranked & home a couple nights ago. I put a clear vinyl line into the fuel line ahead of the filters....bubbles like mad. OK...air in the system. I ran to town after morning milking & replaced the 2 3' sections of rubber hose, then went over all metal line connections. When replacing the rubber hoses, I had what seemed like great fuel flow from the tank. Cranked her up.....bubbles like mad still! Took fuel line off tank & good flow.....BUT, then I went ahead & took the cap off the tank & blew back through the line. More flow! Put all back & she appears to be fine now. Something is in the tank, and when the pump starts pulling it blocks off, but right now I have to have this tractor going. Alfalfa to cut this Monday if weather will hold, the manure to spread on the hay field after. GOTTA have this tractor for the manure spreading. Had a MF2705 do this many years ago and blew it out & never has done it again. I forgot about that one till today.
Soon as I got done with the tractor, time to RUN to feed silage & milk tonight. Josh is off today, so it was all my fun all day long! LOL
My day off tomorrow, so may go motorcycle riding! Need to get away for a few hours.

Good for you! You found it :dancingbanana:

Tank gremlins can be a "B", can't they? Hope it never comes back.

We had a truck years ago that would die on the road , no fuel , but by the time it was towed in it would start and worked good for a few days ,then stop running again turned out to be the protective foil from a bottle of diesel anti-freeze getting sucked to the fuel pick-up tube !!

Just the rubber just off the tank. From under the cab it is steel from there on.

That's awesome Dan! Glad you found it! I hope you enjoy the day off. Be careful on that scooter, lots of "scooter blind" folks on the roads!

I ALWAYS watch very closely for the "scooter blind" drivers! I scan continuously whenever riding, and I mean continuously! Chance of rain tomorrow, so may end up in the Cherokee. Plan to hit a large flea market in Bowling Green, Ky. Just something to do & never been to this flea market before.

With all that has been going on around there, I think you could use a couple days off. LOL

Glad you found the problem, Dan.

I hope you get to enjoy some seat time on your bike. I used to have a 1999 Honda Valkyrie Interstate. I LOVED riding that thing. Best therapy going!

Please do be careful everyone with 2 wheelers!

There was just an accident last week near Meadville. Older Lady backed out of her driveway right in front of a guy. He was pronounced at the scene. He and his wife had been married 7 months, firstborn on the way in the fall. Really sad story. Community is passing the plate for her and the kid.

Rode 190 miles. Flea market not so good, but dinner at Ryan's was! My battery is dying & had to push start the last time. Not wanting to shut it off for fuel, I just rode on to home. Switched to reserve, and calculating in my head, I figured we'd have just enough to make it home. Started missing less than a mile from home, but made it all the way up the drive on choke. Died out as I came to a stop near the house back door! How's that for CLOSE calculations!
Had a good day & maybe plant some sweet corn tonight. Fields drying, so cutting alfalfa tomorrow & likely start field corn mid week. Things may start getting caught up....maybe!

Glad you had a normal, uneventful day, other than fuel. I love the smell of alfalfa hay.
