Propane Leak

Case 730 LP

On my 730 LP, tried to start it today and had LP gas bubbling the oil in the oil bath air cleaner up front and out the precleaner above the hood. Made a neat fog around the whole tractor. Don"t light any matches !!! Looked like shimmering heat waves on a desert horizon. I shut the gas off and after the air cleared, I tapped on the diaghram then opened the valve again with no hissing and bubbling, so hit the starter and it ran normal. Anybody know what caused this as it seems to be kind of dangerous. I would think a spark from the generator would send me to see old J.I.Case himself up there in tractor heaven and I haven"t restored any of my tractors yet!!!

Sounds like the valve in the vaporizer was sticking. Probably about time to rebuild it.

As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he rea ... [Read Article]
