How do you prime the fuel system on a jd 4430. Im an idiot and ran it out of fuel while goin down the road now its sitting in a neighborhood. Its got two block style filters and the manual pump you screw out and pump if you pump the manual pump and start itll start strong then sputter out. Im sure theres air in the filters but not sure how to get it out. Thanks guys im still livin and learnin. Worried sick right now as it sits

I guess cracking the injectors depends on the tractor. We've got a Massey 285 that won't start until a line is cracked, where our Oliver 1855 will start after the filters are bleed.

on your filter block, there's a air bleed, loosen then pump like the devil till you get raw fuel, tighten and pump tight again, start tractor

Gotta find the bleeders at the filter. Bleed them there and then crack an injector line until solid fuel flows. Atleast that's if it's an older model with all mechanical fuel system. Not sure where the bleeders are exactly as I'm not familiar with JD's, but find those and bleed them until you see no more air.

All these conditions can be signals that your unit is in need of a tune up. Ok, so what is involved in a tune up? You say, swap plugs and file the points....now tha ... [Read Article]
