Why my tractor lifts up at front whenever a loaded trolley is being pulled?…
Why this happens?
- A part of weight of trolley and a part of weight of tractor at front shifts to rear axle. Due to this fact a lift is produced at front.
- Improper selection of toeing hook.
- To over come this imbalance, put weights at front.
- Use hinge mounted type recommended hook. Avoid tube mounted type hook as it can cause big damage to your tractor.
Why my tractor has started consuming excessive engine oil?…
Why it happens?
When the tractor is used for running purposes without load for a longer period as low as 30 hrs, it starts consuming oil. The recommended limit of oil consumption is 0.5 lit of oil after 100 lit of diesel.
- Park the tractor at level ground.
- Check levels of engine oil & diesel.
- Make up oil level to the “Max” mark, diesel to full tank.
- Set engine speed to 1800 rpm with the help of hand throttle up to consumption of 1 full diesel tank..
- Park tractor at level ground and stop the engine.
- Wait for at least 1 hr
- Check for possible drop in oil level on dipstick.
- Make up oil level to “Max” mark with the help of a measure.
- Check for leaks if any i-e; engine main oil seal, timing seal, sump joints, cam shaft seal etc.
- Check possible leaks in the air intake system.
- Do not remove thermostat valve from the engine.
