Picked up a 1959 Case 900 Diesel with the later In-Line Pump. The tractor sat for several years. The guy I bought it from had someone with Diesel knowledge come out and get the tractor started. The guy told me it ran for just a few short minutes and he raised the loader (yes it has a loader if you can believe it) which promptly blew a hose so he shut the tractor off.
I got it home and gave it a pull and it did start right off. It is missing on I would say 2 cylinders. The other issue is it runs at full throttle and the throttle lever moves the lever on the pump, but makes no difference in the rpm's of the motor. The tractor engine is not trying to run away, just runs at full throttle.
Is there some way to look into this without taking off the pump? Any other suggestions? Thanks - Bob
