diesel pump problems

Here's a problem to test the skills of any tractor man...

I just took off all the pumps,etc on my 3000 diesel (c.1970) for repainting. When I put it all back, it cranks and runs on starter fluid but dies. So I did two things--
(1) check timing (Simms inline--19 on flywheel after frontmost cylinder puts out air through injector hole, matched pump shaft markings behind starter motor and gear markings behind radiator hose). (2) I then bled it to the injector nuts, then kept running it on a whole can of starter fluid...No magic...

(Here are some other clues: the lift pump was clogged so I had to clean it out and put it back. This tractor has been unstartable without starter fluid for a couple of years. There are no starting aids and the only thing left working on console is throttle. There is no cable to diesel stop lever. For your information, I am 26 years old and beginning a new relationship with a tractor. I would really appreciate any old-timers helping me out.

Yor are being tough on it using that much starting fluid, take to the shop and get them to fix, do replace diesel stop before you get hurt.

sounds like you may have a weak pump and taking it off was the straw that broke the back so to speak I'd take it to a diesel shop and have the pump checked out. By the way if that is whats wrong hold on it will cost around $500 hope this helps you some

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]
