High Pressure 970

Was spraying with 970 Diesel Powershift the other night, when it started hammering, I had noticed more blow-by earlier, but blamed that on still having winter fuel. Pulled to the end of the field and pulled fuel off. Shut down then boom, and smoke rolled under hood and into cab. It had built up pressure in crankcase and the boom was the dipstick blowing out, releasing pressure. Let her cool down, and sounds ok, but still seems to be building up pressure. Any ideas? Plugged oil galley? Help will be appreciated.

We had the same thing on our 2090 one time, had some broken rings allow pressure to build in the crankcase and boom, we couldnt find the dipstick.
We ended up replacing a sleeve and piston.

Is the crankcase ventilation system plugged perhaps? If not then it could be ugly :o(

Don't sound good. Broken, or cracked Piston. We just went through it with an 1175. Cause was a faulty Injector.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
