Okay, gentlemen. First, thank you.

Number one closest to the radiator. I have number one at the rear, just the opposite; going 1-3-4-2 -2 being at the radiator, and the engine starts and runs, there is no white smoke at the rear cylinder. There is only white smoke when the engine is running on diesel. So, having the cylinder number one closest to the radiator, then number 3-4-2 would be going toward the rear, correct? When loosening the connector to the injector, and the white smoke diminishes and there is no change in r,p.m. then could we say a valve -usually exhaust- is leaking on compression stroke. When tightening the connector, the white smoke returns.

The screw cap at the pump: on the side there is two small plugs. When I remove the highest plug nothing came out; however, it was wet and seemed to be diesel fuel. On my perkins diesel -1968- the injector pump is filled with oil and has a drain tube, where the pump seeks its own level. So the injector pump here would be filling the pump -at the cap- with oil to the point of the highest plug.

I am going out to the dozer this morning after I receive words, and see what I can do. Thanx in advance

I don't think anyone answered your question above: number one cylinder is closest to the radiator, the next cylinder is number two, then number three, then number four. 1-3-4-2 is the firing order, not the order of the cylinders in the block. Hope that helps.

Thomas, the timing would only effect running on gas, not diesel. Since the MD runs conter-clockwise, find #1 on the cap and work backward going 1-3-4-2. You might be in time since you say the engine runs on gas. This could be because you said you moved the gear to get it in time.
Attached is a picture of the pump on my 46 MD when I got it in 1968. It should be the same as your 47 TD6. I would drain the oil and then add until it comes out of the test plug. If it is full of diesel, it could be that the previous owner just drained it until it no longer came out of the test plug. Until you run it for a while, you won't really know how much diesel gets in. They will all leak a little. When I used my MD, it would gain about a 1/2 cup after running all day. Just ask if you have more questions. Al
