Re: My friend who own junkyard have trojan loader. engine seem blow ton smoke.
Been around Detroit's, 4-71s, 6-71s, 91s etc. for years. It doesn't sound like a Detroit to me. Sounds like an International, might be wrong though. Engine has to be at running temperature to make a fuel evaluation. Old equipment like this invariably has bad thermostats in them and the engines never come up to temp. Hence, white smoke. Black smoke, worn out injectors, I doubt very much if the pump pressure is to high. Blue smoke, Low compression, rings shot. As far as the compression knock, 80% of it should disappear when up to operating temperature and then it should only knock at idle. If it knocks at operating RPMs, go buy another loader, it'll be cheaper. JMHO. PJ
