    Ok, disclaimer first. Not a diesel mechanic and not that familiar with diesels. My trusty Kohler/Lombardini 35 hp air cooled diesel somehow got water in the fuel tank. We think it was a dirty load from the service station. Drained the tank. Cleaned bottom bowl and then ensured the gravity feed...

    I may need to get the diesel engine on my 1968 ford 4500 tractor re-sleeved and a new set of pistons. Would anyone have an idea what the ballpark cost of something like that would be? Thanks

    Hi Everyone, This is my first post on this forum. I bought a Yanmar 186 about 6 months ago. It has never given me any issues, and the fluids have stayed full. I only used it for pulling a box blade around my yard and pulling an empty trailer around. A couple of weeks ago, I accidentally...

    I have a Kobota 3 cylinder diesel on a Grasshopper 721D mower. At random times (loaded or idling) it loses power then either recovers or stalls. It is very hard to start in that it sputters or lags before finally coming up to speed. I had the injectors rebuilt and tested but that did not help. I...

    While working on a plumbing problem my friend once told me "You can never touch just one fitting". Meaning, once you fix this issue, another will pop up. I suppose the same applies to Diesel Fuel Systems. I had a very simple problem. The cut off lever on the fuel injector pump was leaking...

    Hello again all, 1969 Ford 4000. The last 2 times I used it it started to sound like one of the 3 cylinders went missing.
