|Jack Brown||I have no owner's manual.
Ran out of diesel and now tractor won't start.
|Jim Pratt||If you run out of diesel, you have to bleed the injector lines or it will never start again.
Here is how you do it:
On the fuel fliter itself (clear glass bowl) there are two air vent screws on the top. Simply loosen each of those and get clear diesel fluid to flow.
Next, look at the injector pump forward of the fuel filter. On the injector pump, there is a small flat-blade screw on the outward face of the pump near the middle, slightly above the fule line. Simply loosen that set screw until fuel flows out of it. then retighten.
Note: this is NOT the screw filler-plug on the TOP of the injector pump.
By the way, according to the book, you are suposed to add oil to the injector pump at each 100 hours on the 1700 tractor. The 1710 and later use engine oil to lube the injector pump without having to add any. But the earlier 1700 requires that you add oil to the pump through this top filler plug- it says about five ounces is necessary, enough to bring the oil level up about two inches from the bottom of the pump. When I took out the plug on mine, it was bone dry inside.
