Ford 5000, smoking badly after replacing fuel pump

Hello, I was wondering if I could pick someone's brain...

I just had my ford 5000 in the shop to replace it's fuel pump. While there the mechanic said there was an injector out so we replaced that too. But now the tractor is smoking blue pretty badly and if idled up sounds like it's missing pretty badly. The tractor set unused after my father passed away for about 5 years until we had it put into the shop. The smoke smells strongly of diesel. I can't really tell that it is using any oil. Does anyone have an idea if possibly it's because it was sitting so long or is possibly the diesel injection isn't set right and throwing to much diesel?

Thanks everyone

Injection timing is too far retarded. Factory setting is 19 degrees BTDC, I'd shoot for around 21 myself.

5000 Timing is 19 degrees. I'd have the injectors checked if not done already.

Thank you very much and no I haven't had it back but a day from the shop. It's wasn't really in a shop but it was a local guy that works on equipment on the side. I have it inside my barn shop right now and I will look for the manual on it to check the timing. I kind of expected this to be the problem. Thanks!

Have you checked pump timing? Not sure where a 5000 is timed at, but a 3000 is 18 deg. btdc if I remember correctly, an 8000 is 23 deg. btdc, and TW35 is 25 degrees, so I'd guess a 5000 should be somewhere in that range. That's an easy thing to check if you haven't already and very well may be the cause. Hope this helps.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
