Disagree. White smoke is condensation. Water. Gray or uncolored exhaust is burnt fuel. Black is incomplete combustion.

There should be a hex head collar that tightenes the individual fuel lines to the individual injectors. Loosen those collars, crank the engine. If/when fuel is pumped out, tighten them back down - the engine should start. Smell it to make sure it's fuel - not water. If nothing comes out, you're either out of fuel - or the fuel flow is blocked somewhere in the delivery system.

I removed the air filter and hooked up the jumper cables. It started up and ran like crap for about 4-5 minutes then started running smooth. Must have been the cold weather like yall said.
Thanks

Porkystruck,

I have a daughter going though her Army training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. She joined the North Dakota National Guard two years ago.

She tells me that the weather there hasn't been all too warm as of late, which is why I asked about the temperatures in your area.

I agree with Greg_g. Black smoke is a sure sign that the engine is cold, and that the fuel is not burning properly. When it gets down around the freezing point, I plug in the electric block heater for about an hour before attempting to start it.

It's 25 degrees below zero here this morning. (actual temp. Windchill is somewhere around -35) I won't be starting my tractor today, but if I had to, the Knipco heater, powered by #1 diesel, would be the only way I could accomplish the task. That little electric block heater won't cut the mustard at these temps.

Glad to hear you got yours running.

Joel

I'm not sure how you arrived at that conclusion from what I wrote. It's NOT normal for a cold engine to emit black exhaust during the start cycle, unless it's unnecessarily "gunned" before it's permitted to warm up properly. Gray is good, gray going to uncolored is better.

White however, is not unusual from a cold engine while the starter is cranking. It's simple condensation produced when the cold intake air is heated by compression. It should go away in seconds, changing to gray - then uncolored. Volumes of white that persist after starting suggest water in the cylinders; typically a bad head gasket or perforated water jacket.

Once a properly fueled engine is warmed up, a brief output of black is not unusual when the engine is subjected to a sudden heavy load. The governor will initially overcompensate, but the black smoke should quickly return to gray - then uncolored - as the fuel delivery matches the engine load.

This is not meant to scare you but it was my problem on my 755. Mine started fine most of the time but always a little hard as it got colder. I had a block heater too and it was plenty warm enough. It continually started getting harder to start each time. One time it would not start at all. So I did all of the following. Fuel was getting to the injectors, new battery, block was hot, new injectors, glow plugs were hot. Towed it to the dealer (2 miles away) and they did a compression check. It would not start because of not enough compression. So I towed it home and removed the heads and the cylinder walls were pretty bad. So I removed the engine and tore it down. Everything was in specification except for the cylinder walls. Somehow dust had been getting sucked in. Loose filter hoses I am assuming. But I ended up doing a complete rebuild as long as it was apart. I hope it is not your problem but it is sounding like it. I would proceed right to the compression check. Good luck.

You should have a dipstick on the rear of the tractor. It is above the pto shield to the left, I believe.

I was told that these Yanmar diesels need to crank fast, if the battery is slightly low charge that could be it. I'd also check your fuel filter, in addition I'm assuming you have the glass sediment bulb like I have on my 650. I'd guess one of the above is the problem. IF it has ran out of fuel because of a clogged filter or water in the tank, you might need to bleed out the lines... I hope you have the owners manual to show you how.
