    Default 69 model ford 4000 hard starting

    My ford 4000 runs great cranks right up when it's warm uses no oil what so ever, but the tractor if you leave the fuel shut off in as in the run position it takes forever to start usually kills the battery, but if you pull it out an leave it out it'll crank right up the next day. what's my problem I've fixed every fuel leak in it even changed an injector? I've redone all the leaking on the injection pump top too

    The only thing I can think of is that it is leaking back from the injectors and through the pump when the shut lever off isn't in the OFF position. There must be an air leak somewhere.

    Do you think one of the injector lines would cause this or maybe one of the injectors isn't sealing completely I've put one injector in it because it was smoking at idle cleared up now its smoking again

    ay weeping around the injector lines?

    spray everything down with carb cleaner and let dry.. then after setting.. look for wet oily diesel seepage.

    do this ont he injector pump.. and hard lines as well.
