OK so yesterday i serviced my new to me 1989 Ford 2810. Changed oil/filter, coolant, fuel filter/water separator, 2 new air filters, transmission oil, hydraulic oil / filter etc. The engine oil looked ok, fuel filter looked decent but the fuel separator was full of very black fuel with small particles of something in it and it was totally nasty looking, transmission oil was milky white, hydraulic oil was very dark color, coolant looked great, and outer filter was dirty but inner was very clean. Tractor has 440 original hours so some of the stuff was first time being done. Fuel separator had never been apart but fuel filter had been replaced. Air filters were original cause they were made in 1988. So overall nothing terribly bad except fuel separator looked very rough and transmission apparently had some condensation in it. Anyway i had ran tractor before service and it cranked and ran ok but loped at idle a little and always has some light smoke coming from the exhaust. Now the lope is gone and the black smoke seems to be a little better but it still smokes some all the time where my other Fords seem to almost stop once you get going. Should i be concerned with the light amount of black smoke? What could cause this? I know this tractor has not ran much in years and when it did it was not used long just by the hours on the tach. Overall the tractor looks next to new and is in amazing condition. Everything is original except he's painted the muffler a silver color at some point in time. It is an original muffler though or OEM as it says Ford on the side.
