  1. TD 6 compression release lever

    Ok. Good thing she never for going. What does split overlap mean?
  2. TD 6 compression release lever

    So I am at a loss! lol. I have come to the conclusion that is must be a spark issue. I have checked and cleaned the flapper in the intake, and it seems to flow well and seal well. With the intake off, I gave her a shot of ether in the intake port, and tried to start. NOTHING. not even a cough...I still have the spark tested inline, on no.4 plug, and can see i still have spark. But wouldn't the engine try to start, or even cough, or do something if i shoot a bit of starting fluid in the port? i tried both the big port, and the small port, at different times, and at the same time. with the decompression lever down, as well as it up. trying all possibilities. I do have newer champion plugs, if i remember right, D89? I have newer plug wires. I have not put a new cap/rotor/copacitor. That will be my next thing. I would have thought i would get SOMETHING to happen. I am

    ok. So you think the linkage looks normal, and how it should? I do have spark. I have been running an inline spark tester while i am trying to turn over to make sure its sparking.

    ok i thought i inserted photos, how do i do that?
  5. TD 6 compression release lever

    Hey guys, I am thankful for all the help so far! I will try and get pics on this post. I have done a little tinkering this morning and here is what i have come up with...took the valve cover off, and notice number 4 compression valve was stuck. I sprayed some Kroil on it, and tapped lightly with brass punch, and freed it. Everything else under valve cover looks good. All valves are moving as they are suppose to. It looks as if the spring that chris's picture shows, is also on mine. maybe mine is stretched out? I have been able to get the dozer to "cough" with ether, but that is it. I have double checked the firing order, and took the mag cover off, and mine turns CCW. So i put the no.1 plug on the no.1 spot on the cover, and went CCW 1-3-4-2. So i still didn't get anything, and I though i got spark, go fuel, maybe no air. I then took off the intake, and noticed that when i took it off, the linkage that controls the butterfly valve, is real close to the spark plug (normal?). and when i took the intake completely off, the butterflies are OPEN. so in short, the decompression lever it UP, or in DIESEL mode, and the butterfly is OPEN. and when i push the lever down, is seems to CLOSE the butterfly. This is in reverse. It looks as if the linkage that controls the butterfly may be homemade, or had the lever welded on. I will enclose some pics, and let me know if it seems to be correct, or if there is something i am not seeing. i the picture of the backside of the intake, that is how i took it off.
  6. So I checked my linkage, and it looks to be correct. I am still having a slight issue with the lever release, but I can hold it down for now. I am going to turn to the firing order on the Mag. Maybe I have some wires switched. Anyone know the correct firing order for the Magneto ignition? and what are the cylinder numbers, from front to back? I seem to have found some conflicting info on line, and what pictures i see...

    How much are you looking to get?
  8. So I have aquired a td6 some time ago...and I am just now getting to it! So I have spark, and fuel, but it won't start. It looks as if the compression release lever is not factory. It is a threaded rod that was bent and made to work. Also, I have to hold the lever down while trying to start. It does not stay in the lowered position. Is this normal? All the videos I see, the operator can start it...and then "throw" the lever...mine has to be held down while starting. Last thing...how can I tell if the compression release is working, or how to I adjust the linkage? I will get some pics up soon! Thanks in advance for the help!
