    K, boys listen up. this deals with a F2L 912. could be anything Duetz but this here is the voice of GOD. and, yet you might want to dam it but you can only do so after working on one of these things. No REALLY....

    I was told...*shit wish I tapped all my calls*; I was told "Don't pay any attention to the book" and, haha, and, ahah,,....shithahahah and then I said "No wonder you guys lost the war."

    this is a shit storm of german engineering and stupability. klasick case of build it and they will cum/come or watch pornos. I'm telling you that nothing lines up according to the book; at least the one I have. So's I got bumped around and was given a number of MEMO. Shure as shit I called. And, I swear the guy paged through his book and told me I could use the cam that is rated at 1800rpm in a or with a 2150 bohcs (?) pump. Sure as poop I called the high performance guy that I know and he told me that high end rpm/idol was controlled by the pump. So being the butt that I am I pulled the cams and they are so very different. I measured them in my cave man ways and darn these things have thistles in the wrong places.

    SO, I am here to tell you that when dealing with a duetz just use the book for knowing the +'s and -'s and then just know the suck squeeze bang blow on your own.

    Big Bud Tractor Restoration 2 - Welker Farms Inc
    Welker Farms Inc



    Published on Apr 7, 2017
    This is our second Big Bud on the farm and has been working the fields since 1981. After many thousand hours the original Cummins engine had low compression and was starting to fail. Rust was replacing paint and the cab interior showed it's age. After deciding to do a rebuilt we came across a 1984 Versatile 1150 with an excellent engine but bad transmission. After looking into our options we decided this would be the perfect power plant for our Big Bud. This project took over 3 months, between 3 guys, and the result were more than we hoped for. I hope you sit back and enjoy a glimpse of what it took to make this beast live again.

    The time-lapse was done using Gopro Hero 3 cameras and a self built slide for the sweeping effect. Needs a little work but overall it made for a spectacular high speed view.

    I should delete post number 398 but it is useful to getting a tractor out of the field. I Rebuilt/in housed a 137MF. As I had to remove the fuel tank I emptied it out and inspected it and I was clean, all the fuel lines were clean, in fact every thing was dandy. As I used it that year for the garden I noticed that there was a brown sludge showing up where the fuel dripped. So I just fixed the leaks as they appeared and kept on going. I missed an important sign of fuel converting to sludge and it was the brown lackery substance in the block of the motor. What I found two years later was a mess, the whole fuel system had gelled up with sludge. Where this came from I do not know but it was bad.

    First of all every one should use a biocide in their fuel to keep the fungus from among us, period. Next after tank was drained it was plugged off with the fuel gauge removed and a bottle of dry sodium hydroxide poured in and filled with water. This only works on steel tanks, do not do this on aluminum. With aluminum you just use acetone and gas. Let tank sit for 2 to 3 days then empty out and pressure wash as best you can. Now to neutralize the sodium dump in a jug of vinegar and let sit for a day or two. I kept agitating the tank a few times a day. Drain and pressure wash out residual crap that vinegar will loosen up.

    While all this is going on time and pull injection pump. Drain pump and place in 5 gal bucket if it will fit and cover with acetone. [Edit: do not use lye/sodium hydroxide on the injection pump. this pump will either come clean or have to be sent in] One can put injector lines in acetone but the acetone will leave a residual so I cleaned them with a bicycle brake cable. I stripped off the plastic and unfurled the outer cable guard and separated it from the inward plastic coated wire. I had a friend hold on one end of the outer guard and I on the other and we pulled this as tight as we could making it in to a sudo screw which could be cut into lengths/ some long some short. Now with the inard wire I stripped off the plastic and unfurled 3 to 4 strands and un wrapped them.

    Now to fun part: Start digging out the goop. I used acetone, brake clean and gas. Once I got which ever tools I had made through a fuel line or injection line I kept pulling tool back and forth while using afore said solvents till they came clean.

    Four days it took me to clean the whole fuel system. I kind of figure that my rebuild failed because fuel was not getting delivered in proper amounts to all three cylinders thus making one work harder than the other two and thus it spun a bearing.

    Now when it comes to aluminum or brass/copper one cannot use lye/sodium hydroxide one has to use acetone and let set. In one aluminum tank we dumped 3 gallons of acetone and at $20 per gallon and only getting to use it once we considered that an expensive fix. We flushed out the aluminum tank with gasoline after pressure washing it also.
