hello tractor guys
I have an old vehicle that I need help with. It is a
1964 willys cj5 that came with the perkins 4.192 diesel factory installed its the same engine as the early mk 1 massey fergurson tractors. So I thought there may be help here,any would be appreciated.
the engine problem is that intermittantly the fuel tank will empty itself into the oilsump pan! I have
replaced the cam driven fuel transfer pump to no avail,and I m stumped how this can happen any advice
would be appreciated thanks james shea

Does it have a thermo-syphon starting aid on the manifold? These can empty a tank in no time at all. Unscew the heater element and reconnect the pipe with the heater out of the manifold and watch to see if it can start the vehicle with it out, plug the hole in the manifold if you are real fussy!. Replaced a lot of these for the very same reason . Sam

Injection pump drive seal can leak into crankcase also. Just resealed a MF 165 for that problem.
