  1. Hi, been out fro a while and just getting back to work on the TD-9... I would appreciate the CAD file... The latest is that I finally got it to work on diesel on cyl 1 & 2 but the remaining two do not have pressure... I thought it might be the distribution block is jammed or plugged somehow... Just can't get the tools to tear it apart... Now I need to find somebody that can fabricate the tool... I appreciate your help and the CAD drawing... I have noticed that the primary pump pumps out a lot of bubbles... is it supposed to do that? It goes into the filter where the bubbles are removed before going into the plunger... standingfree@protonmail.com Gary, thanks
  2. I wonder if you ever found a home for these?
  3. The issue that I am having is that I am having only cyl's 1 and 2 (from the front) fire... did have the head rebuilt... checking the fuel bleed valves, shows that I am not getting the pressure tot he injectors, I have checked the opening valve clearance and that appear to be OK. so that would suggest that the system is holding pressure for 1&2 but then is losing pressure for 3&4... any thoughts? when I set up my Injector pump to operate on my bench, I notice that there is a lot of air bubbles coming out of the primary pump on the back of the Injector Pump assembly... that seems a bit odd. I don[t know if that is an issue... My guess is that it shouldn't be having bubbles from the primary pump Now if I remember correctly, the fuel flow goes from the primary pump into a filter where it then goes into the secondary pump so that would suggest that the air would then get separated... I did put in new gaskets I have put in new gaskets, and it is still leaking fuel into the lower section of the pump (different issue I think) ... What seal is causing this? Have already spent $500.00 on this thing...
  4. Well, ended up getting a head job on it and that fixed most of the issues... in fact, it now runs on cyl 3 & 4 when I switch it over.... the currently problem is that there isn't enough fuel being pumped to cyl 1 & 2... Since the other two are working fine, I would think that the problem is in the distribution block or the lower section of the pump where the push rods are (the push rods are not pushing the valves open enough for a proper supply of fuel to get through). The second issue can be checked with a gage, the first issue I have no clue as to how to take the D Bolck apart because of the special spline tool that is needed.
  5. Thanks, I was about to find a hard copy online for $21.00 in Calif. Binder.com I think was their name. I will check that out, but in the mean time, I still think it is a blocked or plugged distribution block, except I can't get it apart thanks to that darn spline tool needed to remove the tips from the block ... that cannot be found. Does anybody have the spec's so that it can be computer cut out of steel?
  6. Hi everybody, been down for a while and am just getting back... TD9 1949 Rebuilt head... rebuilt primary in the fuel injection pump, didn't touch the lower section. She started up on gas fine, but when I switched over to diesel it only worked on 2 cyl's. Troubleshooting: made sure everything was properly bled, then checked the output of each diesel line to the injector (using the bleeder valve), found that injector 1 and 2 was barely putting out and cyl 3 & 4 worked like a charm. This suggests that the primary pump is working fine. Prognosis: The primary fuel pump is working fine... it appears that the Issue might be the distribution block (the TD9 sat for about 15 years before I got it and it wasn't working with it was parked... (probably because of a head issue that I corrected with a rebuild). The pump appears to be working fine up to the D block, and the block is working fine for 2 cylinders, so that indicates to me that the two valves on the D block that are not working are caked or full of gunk? Question: Is it possible that the runners pushing the rods up to the valves in the D block cold be bad or worn so that the valves are not opening up as they should? How would this be checked or verified? But that seems unlikely to me, one bad I could believe but two side by side? Well I guess you never know... that is why I need to figure out how to measure how far the first two push rods come out as opposed to the working two... Some kind of expensive gage I suppose. The other issue that I have is that if it is the D block, I can't find the spline tool to take the D block apart and put it back together in order to clean it up... any suggestions on that? Thanks to all that have helped me in the past... Gary
  7. Scott, I imagine that the steering clutch will be the next item that I have to work on... I can only make right hand turns... Once I get the thing working on diesel, I can at least cut some roads that I need. I have 5 acres on the side of a hill, retired, limited income... so I have to be very frugal... the TD9 was given to me when a neighbor passed... it had been sitting for about 15 years. It has been fun overall but very frustrating as well... LOL
  8. I have been searching for days trying to find some way to remove the distribution pipes from the distribution block without having the specialized tool that nobody has.... it is a exercise in futility with this search function on RPMF but hey, I am thankful that the information is here somewhere... <grin>
  9. How did you search and find the MD injector pump?
  10. I AM STILL STRUGGLING WITH THIS... UGH! Ok, I ended up getting the head rebuilt, after that I was able to get the crawler working on gas and it even started up on diesel... the bad part is that it only worked on 2 cyl's... Okay, here I am right now on the progress of getting this thing working. I ended up pulling the head and having it rebuilt, I had to replace several of the valves and once this was completed and the head was put back on the engine, not only was able to get it operational in gas mode, I was able to get it started switched over to diesel. So here's where the next problem comes in; it only worked on two cylinders on the diesel side. So with more troubleshooting I came to the conclusion that cylinders one and two were not getting enough fuel pressure as exhibited in cylinders three and four. In reviewing these symptoms, the only thing that could cause this issue would be the distributor valve block. It is my understanding that when you take the block off there is a channel underneath it that appears to be a fuel drain off for leakage from the block that I think goes back to the scavenger valve and then it is pushed back into the fuel supply. Please correct me if I'm wrong on that. Another side issue that I am saying is that there is a lot of fuel being deposited into the fuel pump oil reserve which is indicating that either the distributor valve It's that rest on the camshaft has worn seals, or the distributor valve seals are worn, especially in cylinders one and two, that is allowing for the pressure to be released past the seals down into the oil reserve section. So the next part or issue that I have is that I am going to have to take the distributor block apart which means I'm going to have to figure out how to take the discharge fittings off the block in order to get into the valves, at least I think. I do have a book on the injector pump which is supposed to be an OEM, but it's not giving me a lot of detail other than the fact that I need a highly specialized attachment which is of course not available. So I have two options at this point, the first option is to see if anybody here has some sort of trick or way of getting discharge fittings off the block, the second option is to find somebody or some company that can rebuild it for a reasonable charge... Being that I am retired I do not have a substantial income. Any thoughts and comments would be more than appreciated, thank you very much. Gary
  11. Great idea, thanks... will try it Wed and see what happens
  12. That would be great news if somebody would pitch in on the subject... I think I will start a new thread specifically for troubleshooting the issues...
  13. Did you ever figure it out? I believe that because of the tooth ratio, it will take 4 full turns of the crank for the alignment marks to come back up into alignment. I tested the compression of the cylinders through the spark plug holes with the gas/diesel lever open and closed. In theory my readings should have been pressure on the diesel on... Gas off... and no pressure Diesel off/gas on setting.... this proved correct for all cyl's except #1 in which there is no change. So it appears that the valve for #1 cyl is not closing when switched to diesel which then does not provide the high compression needed to fire the fuel. So that now looks like I will have to remove the head and fix it... Ugh!!!!
  14. Would you happen to have a picture of the whole Injector pump gear as it looks when it is aligned? Thank you
