Gas in oil

Question

Hubcat

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!!

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
