Expert's Assistant chatimg
Customer: Massey 471 with backhoe on the back, just dug nose down on STEEP hill, hydraulics were just a little shakey, dug, lifted loader bucket, moved forward 6' to level, lowered front end loader bucket, and lost all hydraluics front and rear.
JA: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?
Customer: MF 471, ex-wife took the manuals / purchase info (but left me the tractor), if you tell me where to look on the tractor I can go look
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.
Customer: I put a couple gallons of hydraulic oil in to be sure it was not that, no change
JA: Anything else you want the Agriculture Mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hi, My name is***** will be glad to help. We can follow up as needed on here, Give me some time to review your information and follow up with my responses.

What is your serial number?

Cancel: I went and looked everything over, found a control lever for a remote cylinder 2" forward, that had killed all hydraulics. CAn I ask a second ? Crank case is filling with diesel, could it be any thing other than I need to pull the injector and take to rebuilding ?

Thanks for the update on the results of your initial question and yes we can swap this over to your new question instead. Usually fuel in the crankcase oil is the result of an injection pump that is leaking into the crankcase from an injection pump that is in need of rebuild by a fuel injection shop. If you have a mechanical fuel pump mounted to the side of the engine block that supplies the injection pump, that can also be a source of fuel leaking into the crankcase oil. It's a pleasure to help anyway I can.
