    Default >>>>DIP STICK ON THE INJECTOR PUMP ????

    I found a dip-stick on the injection-pump.

    I have been messing with diesels since I was in diapers, even rebuilt a few pumps, and I have never before seen an injection-pump that had a dip-stick; the previous owner obviously hadn't either.

    I pulled the little stick and it was dry as a bone.

    I put a piece of aquarium hose onto one of my little pump-oiler-cans full of clean 15W-40 oil, maybe 4-ounces, stuck the hose in the breather-hole mentioned in a seperate thread, and pumped the can dry, until oil started showing on the stick.

    Does anyone know any information/details/back-ground on this dip-stick business ??



    Also, forward and above the dip-stick, there is a plug with a knurled top, about 3/8" diameter.

    I pulled the plug straight up to find it about 1-1/4 long, with an O-ring seal on it's shaft.

    What purpose does this plug serve ??

    Thanks.

    If you know anything at all about my tractor, please see my questions in the Mitsubishi section; thanks.

    Sounds like you need an operator's manual.
