Turbo GONE!? & Stubborn Starting Skid Steer!

Jan 29, 2020
201 326 Views

A few weeks back I noticed an oily substance oozing out of the turbo down pipe which led me to believe the turbo seal was leaking. So lets run it again and see if it is truly a bad seal or just an old slobbery engine. On another note our 270 Skid Steer is a brute to start in the cold, cranks slow no matter how new of starter and how many jumper cables you use on the battery. The thing is even in warm weather it has a hard time starting. This brings us to 3 conclusions, it is a hard starting John Deere model, it has weak piston rings or scored cylinder walls, or it needs its valve clearances set. Technically it could be all 3 but the easiest solution is to tackle the valves and see if that makes a difference. So lets get to it!

  • Love this Channel ! Only thing is can you use a household wire for automotive ? Reason being I know over in the ik we can’t and I’ve got first hand Experiance the wires not tested to the amps an alternator puts out so 12/24v at 120/240 amps depending on make a sound model ( broad term ). Our house hold wires are rated at 230/245v at 13/20amps maximum ? Seen a good few eletrical fires with that being used

  • I set valves a little different than putting the piston on TDC. When I set the intake I rotate the engine until the exhaust valve is open the set the lash on the intake. Then I rotate the engine until the intake is open then set the lash on the exhaust. Then I put it on TDC and recheck both and can't say I have ever had to readjust that comes to mind. Been doing it this way for many years with no issues, just though I would through that out there.

  • Always check the crankcase vent tube...... a clogged tube will cause the turbo to push oil out the exhaust side Once Had a M11 Cummins ( new) that had a kinked down draft tube..... pushing oil out the exhaust......

  • I was just wondering if you figured out was was wrong with uni loader .. I have had many Deere uni loader and after a while they become hard to start had to crank and crank and my finds was fuel lines and clamps even replaced the filter housing and primer pump .. about every winter i would have to go through and tighten up clamps because thru the summer or running and vibration and then getting cold they would be lose and let the fuel bleed off causing it hard to start

  • On your skid steer; I would bet (if I was a betting man) my paycheck on the rings, valves & sleeves are beyond saving. Talk to the "green tractor people" that use a running white tail deer as their logo for parts prices; OR, a better bet would be to search out for a replacement diesel for the tractor & save the worn motor for a rebuild at a later date.

    Bruce RogersBruce Rogers10 months ago
  • I'm no mechanic especially anything modern or diesel. For problem engines I always did a compression check first. If a pot is down on pressure add a bit of oil and test it again. If the compression improved it was a reasonable sign the problem was rings and if not it was valves. If there were no compression problems check the valves and then go looking at fuel, turbos timing etc.

  • The bad thing for any motor if to be used on only light work and auger work is relatively light work for a tractor like that. While nothing can be done about that now regular doses of heavy work is the best cure all. We had an 8450jd from knew and when l sold it, there was 15000 genuine hrs in most heavy ploughing and cultivating and sowing work.and it never missed a beat.now im. Told it has to around another 10,000 hrs on that with no issues still doing similar work.

  • Guys - unless you have really bad blow-by, before you go to overhaul pull and check/replace the injectors. Both of those engines have the older poppet style injectors which springs etc get worn over time leading to the injector not atomizing the fuel correctly. Leads to hard start, smoke, slobber, etc. If bad enough the fuel can start to wash the cylinder liners of oil and lead to premature wear. They are parts you’d want to replace at overhaul anyway so money not wasted.
