Gas in oil

4 posts in this topic

I have a older john deere skid loader and I was getting it running. I drained the oil and there seems to be gas mixed in with it. Anyone have any idea of how it got in there.The Last time we ran it, it smoked a lot and lacked power.

Also I can Start it but one cylinder makes a little more noise then the other, and when I pull the plug wire on that side it does not make much difference in how it runs (there is Spark). But when I pull the plug wire on the other Cylinder it kills. Could these two problems be related? (oil in gas and Bad cylinder)

Thanks Bob

You figured out your own problem without knowing it!! grin.gif What you need to do know is why that cylinder isn't working (lack of compression, a bad plug, excessive fuel). Gas can and will make itself past the rings and come to rest in the oil. We see it all the time in the winter when a vehicle has flooded.

Do both cylinders run off the same carb?

Airjer,

Sorry it took me so long to reply back (been on vacation)

Thanks for the info. Yes there is only one carb for both cylinders.

The compression seems fine in both cylinders, But the spark does not seem the good and I think the plug in the cylinder making all the noise may be firing only part of the time.

So I think I am going to replace the points and the plugs and maybe the plug wires and go from there.

Sounds like a good, reasonably inexprensive, probably needs to be done anyway, idea.

I was thinking about maybe swaping the plugs to see if the misfire follows the plug to the other cylinder. That way we know for sure that the "tune-up" will have it running like new!!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
