Hi guys,
I have appreciated all your help in the past. I have a 1755 diesel with oil in the radiator and a little antifreeze in the oil. I noticed a little antifreeze in the oil today when I changed the oil. It sat in the shed all winter and hadn't ran. It is my spring tillage tractor and am more than a little concerned. Do you think both symptoms could be a head gasket? Or is it possible to have the o rings on the sleeves leaking and a head gasket problem all at once? I have replaced the head gasket on my 1850 gas before. I have never had a diesel engine apart before. Do I have to take the manifold off and the injectors or can I leave them on to pull the head. Is the rocker arm and setting the valves the same as a gas? I appreciate any an all help.

Does this engine have an oil cooler?Had the same problem with a international[oops I said a dirty word]diesel combine engine.Oil was coming out the top of the radiator when running.It was a bad seal in the oil cooler if I remember right.My 2 cents.

From my experience, oil in the radiator and coolant in the oil is from a liner with a pin hole in from cavitation.

When the 1800 B series would do that there was a double problem. Worn main bearings would let oil pass by the sleeve sealing O-rings. What I would do first is drain the oil pull the pan rig or a bearing leak detector and see how much oil passes by the main bearings. Part 2 would be fill the cooling system with antifreeze. pressurize it and see if you have any leakage. We have an IH in the shop at the minute that dumped some coolant in the pan. As long as the tractor was inside the shop it would not leak, set it outside overnight at about 20 degrees and we had pink snow in the morning. One of the O-rings on #5 sleeve leaked. Questions. Head bolt torque and valve settings are not the same as for your 310 (1850) gas.

I work on all my machinery's clutches, pto's, bearings, etc myself, but don't have a ton of knowledge on engines. If it is not to much to ask. How do I set up a bearing leak detector and how do I pressurize the cooling system. I am a small farmer getting started on a low budget. I would really like to try to figure the problem out without sending it in to a shop if at all possible. On a side note I noticed the hydraulic oil was pretty low on the tractor when I was giving it the spring maintenance. Is it possible for the oil to get in the radiator through the hydraulic oil cooler? Also I have been plugging the tractor in for a couple hours before starting it. I also doubt that would be part of the problem. I really appreciate your help.

There are universal coolingsystem pressure testers on the market.They are not expensive.
The kit consists out of a Rad cap and hose connected to a handpump with a gauge.
If you have a 310 waukesha in there i suspect a slight leak in the head gasket between a waterjacket and the oilgallery that feeds the valvetrain.If the engine oilcooler is in the rad it could have a leak as well.

A leak in a sleeve 0 ring would only pass coolant to the crankcase but no oil to the cooling system.
The hydr system is seperated from the engine or cooling system but could however leak into the transmission by various ways(check tranny oil level for being high) or has a slow external leak trough a bad hose or so.
A drop of oil a min will leak a lot of oil over the winter.

If you remove the head pull the injectors first,it's pretty easy to damage the tips. You need an OTC puller or similar and not a vise grip. Wouldn't hurt to check them anyway. They aren't that expensive and alot cheaper than a scored piston from a bad one.
