830 low on HP

My sons and I overhauled my 830 diesel a year ago. Someone had interchanged # 3 and # 4 rods before I got the tractor. I do not know how it ever run or held together.
We had the block redone, top planed and inserts made for sleeve O-ring.
We had the head redone and the injectors checked.
It starts easy and sounds good. It does real well on fuel. I mowed (sickle mower) 6 hours on approx 5 gallon and baled 8 hours on 10-12 gallons.
On flat I can bale in L4 but when I get to a hill I sometimes have to go to low.
Thank You for any help, my dealer is a converted IH dealer.

Dont know enough about tractor such as does it have fuel pressure gage an what is pressure - does it smoke when pulling at full throttle-It should smoke somewhat. I dont know what baler you may have but if a small square baler it should not ever run out of power. Check timing as Jim said an make sure T handle is turned in on top of fuel filters if yours has one. Idont think all had same filter as mine. Also what is high idle speed of tractor.

Check your injection pump timing. Only 1 degree off will make a big difference.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
