Hello guys, looking for some pointers on a 7030 we run our bale processor on. It has always ran good then when processing a bale then it got alot of blow by. It's a little low on power. It does puff out the vent and gets worse with rpm and load...any ideas?
We have checked for oil/exhaust in coolant and vice versa and engine doesn't miss either. Pulled valve cover to see if anything was bent/broken and ran it and all looks good there.
Can a turbo do this? Also, had one guy that thought it could be a cracks in head gasket at a cylinder. Also oil consumption is negligible. TIA.
Worn valve guides or piston rings? If its high on hours, usually that's where you get blow by.
Years ago I ran 7060 tractor.
