1749 Massey? Check the fuel line from the tank, that goes to the fuel filter, the fitting where the hose attaches to the filter is a prime spot for debris to accumulate and restrict the fuel supply to the injection pump.

Okay I'll pass that on to my car guy that has my tractor. Does it sound like fuel restriction problem. I did start slowly of two days. When I changed filters it did have bad trash . Then I drove it about 1/2 mile went through all low and high gears. Rpms up to 2500. Still can get Rpms up to 2500
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 months ago

Yes, fuel restriction is the likely suspect, and the hose from the tank to the first filter is the place to look.

Just got off phone with my car mechanic that is helping me. He said filters fixed the engine problem. That the issue seems to be in hydrostatics. He can bushhog with it in 3 1/2 foot grass low 2 no problem low 4 engine still good no power
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 months ago

OK< When was the hydrostat last serviced?Filters and oil?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I had problems with front end under warranty they said they serviced hydraulics but I do not trust there service department there have been issues in the past that I think they make up problems. For instance if you change a new part and there are no marks on old bolts still there they did not take part off
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Would it be worth new hydronic filter and add oil, it is bottom of eye glass to change. What kind of hydronic fluid does it take.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 months ago

The hydrostat rarely gives a loss of power, and as long as it has clean oil the filters usually don't cause problems. I still lean to the engine fuel system. From may years of being around diesel, loss of power is always the fuel system! Use the oil that the owners manual calls for, There is a Massey spec, and will be a hytrans fluid.
