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.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
