Customer Question

I have a problem with my Ford 1100 compact tractor. It has a 2 cylinder 13 HP diesel engine and when I try to start it, it runs for about 2 seconds with a lot of black smoke and dies. This started when it ran out of fuel and someone put in some dirty fuel. I have flushed out the entire fuel system. What could be causing this problem?

First check the air cleaner to make sure it is clean.

After that it sounds like some of the dirt got into the Injector pump.

Try filling the fuel filter with automatic transmission fluid (high detergent ), then start the tractor use carb cleaner (it has a lubricant that starting fluid coesn't) to keep running until ATF is in injection pump.
