Fuel System Woes Posted by Ron.Beaudry on 05/30/2014

This tractor is great on fuel, so with 13 hours, the first fueling seemed to create a problem...no power and the tractor barely runs. I have been trying to purge the fuel system, changed the fuel filter, blew out the fuel lines, and so far the problem still exists. Next step is to loosen the fittings at the injectors to continue the purge.

The 3616 has "bleed screws" to assist in the process, but the 3016 does not. Also, there is a recall on the three point hitch assembly that needs to be corrected. I like the tractor, so I hope that it is not going to be prone to problems.
