I've been down this road.. is their a Rosta Masa type injector pump on this ford engine ?

I have a ford engine in my big forklift with a Rosta-master pump. It's a simple fix (so I been told) when these RS pumps acts up. They bind up inside and can be caused by getting water in the pump. You pull the top cover off and run the pump through by turning the engine over. You advance the pump like your trying to go full throttle.

I can call the diesel mechanic that told me about this RS pump problem. He fixed my big generator with a Herk. eng. and RS pump (shut off bound up) on it.

All back together and it's running as good as before now!
The only thing I can figure is I let it idle to much, and the carbon built
up on top of the pistons,blocked a couple of the valves to lower compression
and might have blocked one of the injector tips,limiting the fuel. All I really did
was take it apart, clean it and put it back together again. I will run it harder from now on,to keep it clean inside!  Like running a car down the hwy at 70 to blow it out now and then,when you only take short trips around town with it usually. Thanks for all the ideas though guys,it gave me things to look for and check out

 I am glad that it was just a pain in the butt to take apart and put back together with only gaskets and seals to buy, a rebuild can get xpensive quick...  :o

If you have trouble with this engine again, check the starter. If an older diesel does not turn over fast enough, it will not fire. It needs to build up enough compression and heat in the cylinder to burn the fuel. That's why diesels are called compression ignition engines.

It could also be that you are about due for a valve job, but on a diesel that usually calls for a complete overhaul as low compression has multiple causes.
Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
