Finally got some time to work on the 1370 I bought a couple months back. Several questions.
1) Cylinder #6 isn"t firing. Figures, why couldn"t it be #1 .. not under the air filter box? Anyhow, I tested with a crayon on the exhaust manifold close to the head and after a few minutes running all melted quick except #6 which was cold to the touch even. I assume it is an injector problem. How best do I test this?
2) Got an exhaust manifold leak, cylinder #3. Best to get parts through local CaseIH dealer or is there a reputable place online to buy simple parts like those gaskets? Local dealer is over an hour away. I"ll replace all 6 when at it as well as the donut at the turbo.
3) Same question with water pump - it"s leaking at the shaft. Where to buy?
4) There is oil coming down the block from the turbo. The turbo is so caked in oil that I can"t see where the leak is coming from. It doesn"t appear to be at the inlet fitting. My other 1370, a future restoration project, has a like-new turbo on it, clean as a whistle no pun intended. Best to repair the old leaky one or change out or how much is new turbo since if bad I will need to get one more someday as I want both tractors in good running shape eventually. I can hear the turbo whine under load, but not nearly as loud as I remember on the "old" 1370 I ran. That one sounded like it was going to suck in the hood.
5) I"m assuming and hoping I can get to #6 injector without removing fiberglass cowl (did that once years ago to old 1370, was a real bear), but by removing air filter box, is that right?
6) Last one. The clutch (ok inching pedal :-)) engages at the very top of the stroke, just as you feel like you should slide your foot off. Looked up under dash and the adjustment nut on the rod into the tranny is right in the middle of the threads. Any problems with adjusting that to where clutch engages more like 2/3rds of the way up the throw? Is this indicative of another problem?
Appreciate the help. Got about 10 other minor things to do to this one, all pretty quick and simple though .. famous last words!
