Just purchased a David Brown 880 and slashed my few acres. As I was finishing the last strip I hit a heavy patch the revs were a bit low and he stalled.
Didn't want to start again. It ran on Aerostart which indicates a fuel problem. The tank has diesel, the fuel bowl is full, and there is fuel at the injectors. There are no funny noises when turning the engine over. Could the injector pump have been knocked out of sequence by the stalling?
Turning the engine over by hand seems surprisingly easy considering the compression ratio, but up until the stalling the tractor was running very well.
Does anyone have any idea of where I should start looking to solve this problem? All help greatfully received by an Australian cousin.

You mentioned aerostart, is that ether. Are you getting a good spray from the injection lines when you loosen them up a turn, and turn the engine over.

Thanks Elmer, yes the Aerostart is ether. No the fuel was only dribbling out of the injector lines. Next time I get the chance I'll pull out one of the injectors and see what kind of spray I'm getting. I'll let you know whats happening, James

Today's Featured Article - Uncle Cecil's Super A Lives Again - by Mike Purcell. A week or so out of most of my childhood summers was often spent with my Uncle Cecil and Aunt Sissie in the small East Texas town of Maydelle on their 80 acre farm. Some of my fondest memories of these visits are those of learning to drive a tractor at the helm of Uncle Cecilís 1948 Farmall Super A. Uncle Cecil was the second owner of this wonderful little tractor, but it was almost as though he had adopted an infant. The original owner was a man from Minnesota who bought her from a local dea ... [Read Article]
