brewcrew Posted March 16 Share Posted March 16 I’ve got a 706 I’m trying to get running following a head gasket replacement. I’ve got the electrical sorted well enough to run, and replaced the three glow plugs that tested bad. I’ve got fuel at each injector line with them off, so I went ahead and tightened the lines down. I’ve got a pair of 12 volt batteries, plus jumper cables from my semi with four more batteries. (All hooked properly for a 12 volt system). She cranks well for 5-15 seconds at a stretch, then slows a bit. But I can’t get so much as a puff of smoke from the exhaust. I let the glow plugs cool and tried some ether, but it didn’t really change anything with how it cranked until I was using too much, then it started cranking a bit harder. Any tips on getting it to fire? I’m starting to think a new starter might be in order. I have a rebuilt one here from a gas 706, would that be better than a weak one from a diesel? Both batteries in the tractor are solid, one being brand new. All battery cables are good quality and fairly new. Prior to the head gasket it was actually blowing out the intake, so I never heard it run. But it does seem to have suction on the intake this time, so that’s an improvement!
