Tractor Fuel Pumps

Tractor Fuel Pumps

A fuel pump draws petrol out of the tank through to the carburettor.  The fuel and air then mix and pass into the combustion chamber.  A fuel lift pump is a mechanical fuel pump. It lifts up and down with the engine then pumps the fuel from the tank into the carburettor.

Tractor Gaskets

A gasket is a mechanical seal which fills the space between two or more surface preventing leakage of liquids and gases between the component parts. The head gasket sits between the engine block and cylinder head. It is vital to seal the combustion chamber allowing your engine to build the proper compression and contain exhaust gases both of which aid in maintaining the efficiency of your engine.  The gasket keeps coolant and oil out of the combustion chamber while under compression and fill unnecessary space where imperfect surfaces on machine parts don’t form a complete seal.

Air, Oil, Fuel Filters For Your Tractor

Air, Oil, Fuel Filters For Your Tractor

Air filters are designed to prevent debris from entering the engine's cylinders, where it would cause mechanical wear and oil contamination. Without an air filter in place, the engine may also be sucking dirt and debris in at the same time. This can cause damage to internal engine parts, such as valves, pistons and cylinder walls.


Testing A Dynamo

Testing A Dynamo

Tractor dynamos convert external power via a belt to electrical power. They are relatively efficient, possibly between 80 and 90%. A dynamo outputting 14 volts and 30 amps is producing 420 watts. At 90% efficiency this would require 420/.9 or 467 watts from the engine… a little over 0.6 hp.

When a belt squeals it is slipping because it cannot transmit this power. A cold engine just started has discharged the battery and the dynamo at this point is asked to provide its maximum output, often with a damp belt and pulleys.
