throttle linkage on JD 950 tractor
Post a Followup
||The last user of my JD 950 pulled the hand throttle control much farther backward than necessary to shut off the fuel pump. I found the linkage to be bound up and the lever on the injector pump block was in an abnormal position. I got the linkage unbound and now the linkage/throttle control moves freely through it normal range of motion, but the engine now will not start. Acts like it is not getting fuel. I bled fuel lines. Seems to be no fuel downstream of the injector pump. Could the fuel shutoff valve be broken? How do gain access to the fuel shutoff valve?

||This must a JD950 problem. I just bought the same model. The linkage travels too far clockwise on its own and kills the engine. The owners manual has a picture of a JD850 fuel pump and that does not help as that pump works exactly opposite. The linkage arm on the JD850 pushes over the top to add fuel. I suspect there is a spring that must be missing as there is a small hole on the wing that the long linkage arm attaches to??
