Re building the engine on my 1979 pre letter 555 backhoe that came stock with no turbo. This one has an API turbo added. It ran great from what I could tell before the hole in the cylinder (reason for rebuild) but now Im trying to decide to get rid of it or keep it. I want reliability and I plan to only run the machine on my 5 acres. I have been told that the pump and injectors in stock configuration with the turbo will add a little more power, not excessively wear the engine and burn the diesel cleaner. If i remove the turbo I need to cap off the oil lines to the turbo, re configure the air intake and weld up/ bolt the exhaust stack back onto the manifold. Is keeping the turbo a big risk ?

How can I fix the hard fuel lines that feed the injectors ? They leak at the injector pump fittings.

Pump says
Lucas CAV ser.21291SD

DPA 3233651

Since the torque converter is out I would like to service it but its welded together. Is servicing necessary ? How should I proceed ?

Here is a video of that Im into

Bern would you post a photo of the bottom of that chart, I'd like to see what injectors and nozzles the 6600/6610 and 7600/7610/7710 series tractors used, wondering if they changed the injector when the went from Sims inline pump to Lucas DPS

This chart is dated 1983, so it doesn't have the DPS info you're looking for.

As I recall, the switch to the DPS pump happened about the same time they went from the high spring to the low spring injector. So yes, the part numbers should be different.

Not sure what happened to the resolution there. I will try again with a different setting.

Here's your injector number below.

As for the torque convertor, check the drive plate closely for cracks. especially in the middle area where the plate fastens to the converter. As for the converter itself, it obviously is not designed to be taken apart for inspection, however if it was mine I'd be checking the internals for excessive end play.

If the turbo is good I'd leave it on. If removed engine MIGHT have excess black smoke when under full load IF the injection pump had the max fuel setting increased for turbo use as most pumps are. For the line leaks, try loosening/tightening the line nuts several times and see if the leaks stop. I've done this a few times to "seat" the line end to fitting. If line is cracked just under the nut as they sometimes do it will need replaced.
