OK, so the most likely scenario is on the bigger IH units you have to use a little grinder action! Good to know, now to remember.....

I may be able to offer some first-hand info on a TD9 if I ever get to it-the one I picked up last fall has a bad starter gear...flywheel has to come out for that, no way I'm pulling the engine just to change that gear, unless it's totally impossible any other way...got a new gear w/the tractor, the PO lost interest after he bought the gear.

Well I got new points, condenser, cap, rotor, wires and coil and now it runs! I have to get fresh diesel for it. It does not want to run on the old fuel when I switch it.

You may have other issues than the old fuel, diesel fuel will still run these units no matter how old it is if it still is clean and flowable. Make sure all the switch over gear is all working and the fuel filters are clean and properly primed. When the tractor is running on gas try opening the main throttle, if it is getting diesel fuel thru the pump and the injectors the exhaust should turn black, if not it's not getting fuel. in the years we ran them we've had the compression release valves stuck open, It couldn't get enough compression to run on the diesel cycle. We also had the main plunger stick in the injection pump and keep it from working. These are a bit complicated on the switch over gear but when right it is a easy starting unit. F.J.W.

The fuel is a bit discolored. It blows some black and gray, then white raw smoke.

Check the compression relief chamber valves, their in the center of the head under the rocker assy, if it was let sit with the engine in the start mode they may be stuck in that position, that would cause it to not run on the diesel cycle and the white smoke. Good luck F.J.W.

Thanks, I will check them out. I will have to dig out the gasket material and make a new valve cover gasket. How much clearance will they have when in the proper position? I will check them out tomorrow maybe. Thanks again.

It's been so long that I don't remember the specs, It's not too critical as long as there is some clearance when they're closed. The rocker that that controls them doesn't allow for individual adjustment, it is adjusted in the linkage.

I would say set them .020" AVERAGE across all four and let it be unless you have issues. Since these merely open and close once on each start and shutdown cycle, all you have to do is make sure the parts don't grow enough when they are hot to open it back up on their own.

Well, I did not have to pull the valve cover. I accidentally figured out how to start it. I was not working levers properly. I thought the one lever was a throttle until I found out it shut my gasoline off and gas came when I had the bowl drain open when moving the lever. WOW! I figured it out, then it ran on diesel! I had been flooding it out before with both fuels when the lever was half way in between. So no throttle , it runs on the governor. I learning. THANKS GUYS & GALS!
