Forgot to mention the decompression lever, I don’t think I have seen one my self
I believe it gets a bit cool in Canada, in the cool weather when the motor is hard to crank, you hold the lever in the decompression position crank the engine,
When the engine is up to revs you drop the lever and hopefully it will start.
It would be good to decompress the engine while cranking it to bleed the fuel also
As for your dad, I too am 75

Hello, hope you get your tractor started and sorted out. Additional information at fordsontractorpages.nl in England where this tractor was built. Brian is the man from the factory and can help you a bunch. Majors are built like a tank and can even handle a 6 cyl engine conversion. Best Regards brownsmule in NC

Rinsed filter out with clean diesel. Ordering one w new petcock valve and maybe new pump. I'm collecting all the filters and getting containers to drain fluids into.

I will see if I got a picture of that lever it's actually pretty cool it makes it much easier on the battery to turn over much easier to bleed and like you said it would probably help started almost like you do with ATVs that have a decompression lever.

Notice right below the Twisted upper radiator hose is a lever in the down position this position gives full compression while cranking if you pick that lever up you can bleed the system with no compression and the battery just turn the engine right over.

I grabbed this image from the net, the top mark is were you add oil, you fill to the other mark and the drain is the bolt below that.

Had a nice book written and was scrapped due to not meeting some standard...OMG...I want to ...scream.

Bled system completely on low side. No leaks, bubbles and all is well.

Removed high side lines where they go into injectors, engaged decompression level and cranked over and over again. No fuel whatsoever.

Will check and see if throttle was in right pos but new stop cable was installed and cable was all the way forward. Tank full of fule.

Removed SIM Injector pump "valve / front cover from pump and all looked good inside...not rusty or dry. But, when cranking the engine the 2nd spring thing was not going up and down like the others. 1 2 3 4 from seat to radiator and number 2 was just looking at me.

Also the way I'm trying to start this tractor as I do not have a key is to push down on the starting lever while shorting out the solenoid. It starts and runs with starting fluid but will not run on its own. Do I need 12v current going to the injector pump or something? I'm under the impression that if I were to have high pressure diesel going into the cylinders with the stop cable in the correct position and good timing with good compression that this tractor would run...no need for the ignition switch to be employed. Right?

Please advise. Tks

Did you change the fuel filter, did you open the fuel pump bleed screw on the injection pump? No need for 12V to pump. Should have throttle wide open when starting.

When bleeding injectors do one at a time, as soon as it gets fuel close it and do the rest the same.

Not sure what is going on with the plunger in your pump.

Hope this helps, good luck!

Thanks for your reply. Yes...fuel goes to sediment bowl then to in on fuel filter (New) IN side bled then OUT side bled then front of injector bled. Then cranked and should have seen fuel come out at high pressure....seems to be something with pump.
