  1. Td9 starting valves

    Thanks for the input. I'll give it a shot.
  2. Td9 starting valves

    Alrighty, thanks for the advice, I'll see how it goes.
  3. Td9 starting valves

    yeah, took the cover off and second and third starter valves stay depressed all the time and don't contact the actuator. The first and fourth valves seem to have full range of movement. From what we could see the cam on the back of the carb moves well and the spindle for the butterfly valves rotates freely but we never took apart the intake manifold to look at the butterfly valves themselves. how long do you let it soak?

    So my grandfather purchased a 1945 crawler and he has tried to get it running. Problem being he cant see well and can only talk people through it. He operated one in the late 40's but never had one tore down so his knowledge on it is limited. I purchased a couple of manuals for it and we started from there. The engine turns well but wont fire. The second and third starting valves are stuck in the open position which I don't think should be a problem when starting on gas if it fires, but will be a problem when switching over to diesel. Any tips on freeing up these valves without taking apart the head or is that the only way. I am not very familiar with these engines so any other advice would be appreciated. thanks.
