806 blowing blue smoke

Looking for input on the ole d361, she puts out a light blue continuous haze when earmed up and running , also has some oil seeping out center port of exhaust manifold (not actively dripping) externally and possibly others internally im sure. Also oil is a bit high and seems a bit thin so probably fuel in oil so maybe seals for injection pump. Thoughts on maybe pulling head to check pistons and sleave to see if a rebuild is necessary or possibly be fine for a year or so? Starts pritty easy when its warmish out and sounds like it runs fine n no misses or unusual noises, i can take a video of it starting if anyone would like when it warms up outside,as for fuel pump, does it require any special tools or any recommended tools to swap out seals and other soft parts. I did see another post on pulling the pump and can reference it again to save you guys from having to retype unless you feel like writing up again, thanks for any suggestions

That's just slobber on manifold. Change the oil, go give it a good job and see of it clears up. You need to keep a keen eye on oil level if it is leaking diesel you need to adress that. I'd go run the heck out of it. Seriously

X2. If your not really working those engines they will "wet stack" or "slobber" bad, winter time especially. As stated before change oil, work the heck out of it keeping eye on oil level.

Ok, im probly just being paranoid with all this new found time on my hands, ill keep an eye on the oil of coarse, i guess my main issue is that i do not have any implements, nor do i have enough property to actually utilize a tractor this size, hopefully i can fix that problem in the next few years, i do have to pull the air cleaner and give it a look, thanks

Start with easy things 1st, check and or replace air cleaner, change oil then monitor level. If the oil level goes up then yes you have other issues, injectors, pump seals, small steps before jumping to conclusions. Hope this helps

Bross maybe you can find a neighbor you can help with your Tractor, I do some plowing for the farm next to me. It gives me quality seat time on my 1256 and I enjoy it. He supplies the fuel and I get to deer hunt, cut firewood etc. Plus its just being a good neighbor..

I think ill try that, might have someone up the road that might work his fields. Everyone elts for the most part are running pritty big operations and id be hard pressed to find out who actually owns the property let alone have someone learning on their profits ha, it would be awesome if i could actually use it for what it was built for tho and yes that sounds like a common sense way to go about figuring it out, start basic instead of potentially throwing unnecessary time and money away, mostly wanting to make sure its ready for next winter. My old dozer broke a track at the beginning of this winter and we struggled keeping drive way open, i do appreciate everyones time and input

The early injectors were set at 2400 psi with 4 holes. The later injectors, like for a 1456, used a 5 hole nozzle, with smaller holes, and opening pressure set up to 3150. This helps with the slobber encountered when doing light duty work. Also, make sure the injectors are in the right way, inlet close to the valve cover. These sometimes get the injectors put in "backwards" and the nozzles then don't spray right, and they will smoke excessive, slobber, and be low on power.
