That 500 will be so much fun they will pull down a barn and run smooth as glass doing it.

Recieved a call today from Central Fuel Injection Service, the injection pump for the 500 was ready to be shipped back , all fixed.
They told me it was stuck inside and if I had of tried to start it,it would have seized the pump. 340.00 verses well over1000.00 plus I'll take the moey in my pocket. Thats money I can spend on factory original steel wheels. Anyone have or know of a set, LA wheels are the same, but they also offered rear wheels that were 54 in. diameter, where standard was 48 in. diameter. Pm me with any leads thanks in advance. Jim

Was able last weekend to get the injection pump reinstalled and had tje engine running, ran well.
When I bought this tractor I thought the clutch was stuck in the engaged position, but turrns out it is out of adjustment. The problem is I can't move the adjusting ring. Has anyone else run into this problem before, I don't know if the adjustment is all used up or just stuck from sitting. Not looking forward to having to split. Does the adjusting ring thread into the inner or outer half of the pressure plate.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated, Jim

I ran the 500 a little more, and the more I ran it the worse it ran, lots of smoke and fuel coming out the exhaust so I pulled the injectors and sent them to Central Injection Service, called to say they were fixed, had to replace the valves in all 6 injectors. Cost alittle over 100.00 an injector to repair, I'm not complaining, their fast service is worth something. Now just to get the clutch fixed, but that could be a whole new adventure of its own. Jim

When injector tips are bad or proper popping pressure is off spray pattern is
not correct. This will cause excessive white smoke and raw fuel pumped out exhaust. Normally happens on cold motor. Injector must spray a direct narrow pattern across the combustion chamber to energy cell on the Lanova system. The distance across along with lower compression motor causes a poor cold start. The fuel is cooled by the time it reaches the cell.

On the MM's thinner block gaskets along with composite head gaskets bring up compression ever so slightly. They start alot better.

This started good Gary, but some injectors weren't working properly because when running a cylinder wouldnt be firing then it would fire. Cylinders1 and 2 I knew weren't firing right the exhaust manifold temps were lower than the others. Jim

Here is a picture of the clutch. The pin with the chalk mark has to be pulled out and turned 90 degrees and the ring with chalk marks around the holes is what you move. The clutch has to be disengaged. A short bolt that will goes into the holes welded about 90 degrees to a long half inch rod works works OK to adjust the clutch.

Gary I just got the injectors today back from Central Injection Service, they told me they were in bad shape, they had to replace the nozzle valve in each injector. When I firsst started the engine after reinstalling the injection pump after all air was bled out it started right up. Just lots of smoke, no water in oil, no bubbles in radiator, so don't think there is a cracked head or leaking head gasket.
Heins, thanks for the pic of the pressure plate, a 3/8 rod fits the hole, I'm going to weld it to a piece of old pto shaft and smack it with a hammer to try to back it off then try to tighten it. I'm hoping this works, if not I guess next job will be to split it and put a nee clutch disk in. Jim

It shouldn't be rusted, it runs in engine oil.
