  1. Not sure if it's the right dipstick. It dosen't go down in the oil pan at all. It goes to the bottom of the tube. If oil is to the full mark on the stick its 3 inches up in the tube.
  2. I went down over the weekend and got with the mechanic. It was filled with to much oil. The service manual listed 9.8 gallons of oil. We can't find the correct amount to use.
  3. The engine is the D239. After it was installed back in the dozer he cranked it and ran it about 15 minutes. It held a steady 50psi pressure. He cranked it back and ran it about 2/3 throttle for an hour still 50psi. It was cranked a few other times and was fine. Then for some reason it started blowing out the top. I'm 5 hours away from it so I'm having to rely on a friend to get information back to me.
  4. Guys I am relatively new here and definitely not a mechanic. I have a 1984 Dresser TD7E. I had the engine completely rebuilt top to bottom. I just have got it installed back in the dozer.

I poured a small amount of WD40 in the valve area close to each cylinder and it drains all the w

  6. Update: They got it to fire on ether. But come to find out the injector pump is bad. Only getting fuel for two cylinders. Is there anything that would work to soak it to loosen it up? Or where could I find a pump? The tag on this one is missing.
  7. I had a Dresser TD7E with a D239 engine rebuilt. Could someone tell me which direction the engine should turn to crank? It's currently turning counter clockwise.
