Our loader starter running crappy about a month ago, found out the fuel shut down was left open half way and as the motor ran it dumped excess fuel into the oil. We changed the oil and made sure the fuel shut down was working properly. Then we found out that 2 cylinders had their respective( 2 each ) push rods off the rocker arms. So we fixed the pushrods and tightened everything to torque spec and set the rocker arms to the feeler gauge spec recommended by perkins. Now it runs fine but seems to smoke quite badly even when warm, the smoke looks whitish grey. Any suggestions??? could this be an injector problem?
