Ford 3000 oil usage

I have recently purchased a '73 Ford 3000 diesel which I really like so far. I do have a concern about the oil usage, however. There is a tube that is connected to the oil fill. It is routed down to near the right front wheel axle. It seems that a lot of oil blows out of this tube. I had opportunity to use the tractor for a long stretch this past week and had to add two quarts of oil per tank of fuel. Is this normal, or is it indicative of a different problem?

You my friend have an oil consumption problem.The tube you are refering to is the crankcase breather tube .What ever goes past the rings comes out here.You are a prime candidate for a rebuild. A compression test and cylinder leakage test will clue you in as to where the actual problems lie. The big picture is one in which you may as well do the whole job right and give her a complete rebuild. A couple bucks yes but when shes running like new you will feel it was money well spent.Or if the rest of the unit has seen better days this may be that time to trade it off for something a little fresher. Good Luck!

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
