Case tractor help

Greetings,

The barn has an older Case tractor (model 5360? sorry no paper/pencil) that has been stalled on the side of the arena for about a week. It will crank, but not start, and we are out of ideas (new battery, new fuel filters, added fuel to tank as gage is broken).

Any tips or thoughts on what we should try?

I dont htink it can be a 5360 that doesnt seem to ring a bell. Is it a gas or a diesel. If its gas, it could be cap rotor etc etc coil whatever. Diesel could be the pump etc etc, need more info please.

How cold is it where you are? If it is cold and a diesel, you might need to plug the engine heater in and/or use starting fluid. Just be careful with it. To much can blow the head gasket out. Will rattle hard with to much.

If diesel, and they ran it out of fuel, you'll have to get the air out of the system.

Thanks for the replys. Here are some additional details

Nope we haven't run it out of fuel, but that is a good tip. Thanks bmoeller.

As for the model it is a Case-IH 530 diesel. The starting issues as best I can describe are as follows.

The tractor starts to turn over and makes a chug, chug, chug sound, but never quite starts. We are down here in Tucson and in deference to our winter, we tried starting in the afternoon when the temperature was 65 degrees.

We we all laughing about how a) if it were gas-powered tractor, we have a better understanding of it, and b) how come so many of us drive diesel trucks, but still have no idea about trouble-shooting issues with them either. Of course, as the tractor came with the barn lease, we just don't know much about it's maintenance history.

Thanks for your advice and suggestions. I (and all the other riders) appreciate it.

Case 530, huh? Yep, that's an oldie.

65* is enough to make an old tractor like that start hard. Will still probably need to be plugged in and need ether.

Where my dad used to work had a 930 for a short while. I do remember it having a compression release to help the starter spin the engine a bit quicker. Never seen a 530 in person, so I don't know if it has one or not. Doesn't really seem to help anything.

Are you getting any whitish smoke from the exhaust at all? If you are, it has at least attempted to start, and that it is getting fuel.

If it rarely gets used, you could check to see if rodents built a nest in the air intake.

Might be smart to change all of the filters. The fuel filter could be plugged.

I can't remember if that tractor would have a shut off cable or lever. May need to see if the shut off on the fuel injection pump is moving all the way to the "run" position. Could be preventing it from starting if partially in the off position.

Thanks for you help on this. I went to the barn yesterday and the tractor was gone. So I am not quite sure what happened, other than someone got it started and moved out of the arena.

:thanks: Very much for your tips, I will keep better notes next time the tractor has issues. We did start thinking about how to use the regular hooved horse power to accomplish our objectives of leveling arena, and improving drainage, footing etc.
