Adjusting valves is a chore, but the results of your labor are well worth the trouble.
Completely recharge an AC system every few years.
This basic primer of small engine operation provides a quick-fix guide to problems.
Calculate the heat-rejection capacity as well as the physical size of a radiator before installing a replacement.
The heat trapped under a hood after an engine is turned attacks components, leading to shorter service life.
You can remove carbon buildup in an engine by employing these chemical techniques.
You need to change filters when switching, but biodiesel is more efficient and burns cleaner.
They do need to be replaced and maintained.
Over 80 years after Caterpillar introduced the first diesel-powered tractor, the fuel is the essential fluid of any farm operation. Buying good fuel and understanding why it needs to be high quality is crucial now more than ever, due to advanced engine technologies with tighter tolerances. This fuel primer should help you negotiate buying high-quality diesel. To start with, there are three stages of diesel combustion that include:
Delay: This is at the end of compression and after the start of injection, when the fuel does not ignite immediately.
In the Mid-February issue of Successful Farming,, I covered the basics of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). I followed up with a brief overview of the components employed in a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system.
Keep in mind that the SCR is only one part of the emission control system on a modern diesel engine. It can be fitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF), diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), or all of these.
