Oil pours from rear of engine on TD 6

When I start my TD 6, I get a slow drip at the bottom of the engine, toward the rear. When the engine is good and warm, oil starts pouring from engine. Like a quart in 3 minutes; it is a steady stream of oil. I thought it must be a rear main seal; however, when it is cold it leaks little. Could there be a problem with the oil pan at the rear of the engine?; or is it the rear main seal. Is the rear main seal made of a rope, and what do you have to do to get the old seal out and the new seal in? I appreciate input.

Other: On white/gray smoke from number 4 cylinder; after operating for a short time, the smoke ceased, and the engine operated much better. I loosened the injector line and the engine dropped in RPM, like the other three cylinders -good news.

After shutting the engine off, and later starting the engine on gas, and switching to diesel once again smoke came out the exhaust and the engine operated as before. What would be the reason for this? I think for whatever reason, the injector was working and then plugged again -perhaps the starting, and then switching to diesel -don't know. do think it is the injector. The valves are okay. Anyone have input on this?

what is the best way to clean the injector, or should I use much Diesel Kleen?

I began pulling the injector; however once the bolts, two nuts were removed, I could not budge the injector. what is the way to pull the injector? More than likely, the injector has never been pulled since 1952.
on the rear seal: There is the spring that is located just below the rear oil pan, and I cannot get to the bolts at the rear of the oil pan. Does anyone have information on this?

Thanx in advance.

Not familiar with your particular machine but it does sound like it could still be your rear main seal.Reason being is that when oil warms it gets thinner, thus more oil running out versus cold makes sense.

Thank you. I will attempt that and see what happens. It may be good to clean the injector. A person told me to clean with diesel only; is that true?

Oh, does anyone know about the oil streaming out from the rear bottom of the engine. I thought it would be the rear main seal; however, when the engine is first started it does not leak much -maybe a drop every 15 - 30 seconds. When the engine is good and warm, or hot the oil streams; like a quart of oil in 3 minutes.

Could it be the oil pan at the rear that is leaking? Read the above on description and feed back will be appreciated. Thanx.
If part of a track is stuck/curved; how may one straighten it?

Thanx again

Drive it into some standing water, it'll loosen the rust in the pins after driving it around a while. Works better than anything else.

I can't help with the oil leak, I'm not familiar with those engines.

Getting the injector rebuilt would be best, IMO.

injector, working or not would cause white smoke which is telling of a water leak in the head gasket or cracked head. are these problems new or did you get the tractor this way? best of luck.
