The problem you seem to have is that you need to bleed the fuel system to get rid of air. On the top of the filters and on the fuel pump itself are bleed screws that need to be loosened, then using the hand pump, drive all the air from the system.

Then press the heater button on the dash for 30-40 secs, press the pump in the fuel tap a couple of times (making sure the little tap on the manifold (if fitted) is turned on), press the starter and away she will go.

If this fails, try slackening off the injector pipes and cranking the engine over till diesel comes out.

If she is firing on ether there is little wrong with her. A SMALL amount can be used to get her going but if used regularly will damage pistons and rings on these engines.

Age can be anything from 1958 to 1964.

These are a brilliant little tractor about 40hp. They are at a premium price in Europe some fetching up to 3000.00.

 Re: fordson dexta diesel 3 cylinder: diesel in oi in reply to Majorman, 04-17-2005 22:52:54  
I found a new problem with friends tractor.
A large amount of diesel in oil. The fuel pump appears new. I am thinking her father(that passed away) probably put on a new fuel pump shortly before death in an attempt to fix problem.
I read on the forum that it is probably seal on injector pump. Can this seal be replaced without rebuilding pump? If I remove the pump and have a professional repair it is there any problem to reinstalling it other than timing and priming?

Is there anything else that would cause this problem? If the pump has never had any repair, would it be feasable to rebuild while off or just repair immediate problem?

Thanks for help.

The seal in the pump would need to be replaced by a specialist repairer although it is possible to do yourself if you have a clean dust free room and a gear puller.

You have a decision to make. Did your friends father change the oil? or is the diesel there from the previous problem. Pump work is very expensive so I think I would change the engine oil, fill with new and see if the problem re-occurs. The cost of the oil is far below the cost of getting the pump checked.

If you go to http://fordson.freeweb/nl, Dexta manuals are available on the site and the chaps there will mail you details straight from the Fordson books.
