Isn"t that the truth. The diesel isn"t going to start anyway.
We had to have the injection pump rebuilt on a International 460 diesel. The pump locked up over the winter and we broke the shaft off in the spring trying to start it.
The guy at the pump shop said to add some automatic transmission fluid to the diesl in the tractor tank and, on a warm day or two in the winter, fire it up and run it for a while. Have been kind of doing that since. That pump rebuild was over $600.
