Have a 433I engine in an F2 combine. Doesn't get used a ton, but after about 2200hrs on it, it seems to use about a quart of oil or so after a stiff 20 hours of heavy combining. Don't see much for blue smoke while while the engine isn't working, at slow or fast rpms. Is this fairly normal for this engine at this age? I've only had the combine for one season. Thanks.

My experience with those engines is that they are not generally an oil burner. I seldom, if ever, added oil to the ones we had. Two 433T's(one in a tractor, one in a combine) and one 433I, were all the earlier version- they needed a whiff of ether for a cold start on anything but the warmest day. I would suspect the turbocharger first. I've had one leak into the intake. I guess it's more common that they leak into the exhaust.
Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time.

Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects.
