I have recently aquired a 1962 FSM. I need any information I can find on setting the timing. The tractor starts easily and runs desent but smoke pours out the exhaust. The SIMMS injector pump SPE 4A755647 has a torn diaphram in the pnuematic chamber which is connected to the intake manifold. I have inquired about the pump at several diesel shops in my area which tell me that this pump needs oil to lubricate it. However in this forum I have learned that the diesel fuel should lube the pump. This tractor has sat for a while and I am being lead to believe that the smoke is from build-up.

Nelson,

Could you give an idea as to the colour of the smoke? If it is a light blue in colour then it is most likely to be caused by the tractor standing idle.

The split diaphram should be replaced before you attempt any other adjustments because this will have a detrimental affect on the way the engine runs and could also be adding to the smoke.

Get that little job fixed then put the tractor under heavy load for as long as you can. The smoke should clear as the engine reseals itself with a nice carbon seal around the top of the pistons. Light running or ticking over will always cause these Fordson engines to smoke.

Oil in the pump is for the governors of a mechanically governed pump only.

regards
Brian

The smoke is white/light blue at idle and brown/black when it is throttled up. I believe that I have the timimg correct and you have reinforced my theory that that diaphram is my major problem. Now I need to fing the parts.

Thanks,
Nelson
