I don't consider that rude to me; since I'm not the owner.

Without going into partnership structures and what not, I'll just say that I use the tractor to take care of its owners' and my animals. It seems that I have taken over the tractor's care from its owner.

Seems that I can troubleshoot the air issue by inspecting the air filters and running the tractor for a short while with them removed to see if performance improves. I can still get new filters for it; but the real issue here is diagnosing the loss of power. If I spend a hundred bucks on new filters for a machine with bigger issues, that's a hundred bucks that I could use to pay the neighbor to move bales for me while this tractor is laid up for other repairs.

Completely removing fuel and purging the system will take some doing under our circumstances. Any good hints on how I can shut off the fuel at the tank and places to connect to so that I can get the fuel cleanly into containers without spilling all over the place?


Is it better to get one of those tank siphoning rigs at an autoparts store and take the fuel out of the top of the tank; then remove the filter and let the rest run out of the filter mount and catch it with a drip pan under the tractor?

If I do that, is that the lowest point in the fuel system? Should I try to bleed anywhere else to remove accumulated contaminants? At the injector pump? Elsewhere?

Yes, I also understand about the hydraulic filters/fluids, etc. Those problems are being diagnosed as well.

The main constraint here is that the animals have to be fed everyday; and good, warm, dry facilities to perform major repairs are a couple of months away. So much of the troubleshooting is being done with an attitude of figuring out if resources should be spent on this machine now to get it through the winter or if it should be mothballed until then, while we make other arrangements to get the bales moved everyday.
