Hi all -
New member here. I recently brought home my dadís 1964 Ford 4000 4-cyl diesel tractor. It had been parked for about 3 years because he said the injector pump needed to be rebuilt. I got that done and when cleaning and inspecting the fuel tank and fittings, noticed that the diesel return tube (that long upright tube that feed from the bottom) was broken off. That could also be a source of fuel getting into the crankcase, based on some things Iíve read.
Anyway, Iím having a tough time locating that particular part. We have 3 others (MF, Kubota, Ford 5000) that returns this fuel to the top of the tank...
Anybody ever run into this problem and decided to modify the return to go in topside? Just curious of opinions.
