JD 310A Milky Oil

Postby ljw » Mon Oct 11, 2004 6:17 am

I need help on this!! I was working the tractor when noticed the it was running hot on the gauge. I added 2 gal. anti-freeze/water. It had never used any before. So I started working again. The temp gauge went hot and the radiator was low again. :evil: A dim lightbulb in my head was beginning to glow a little brighter. :idea: I checked the oil level and it was high with a milky color. I brought it to the barn and shut it down. Is it as simple as a head gasket? Your thoughts, please. I realize it's the wrong color, but you guys are so savvy I know you can help me. Thank you in advance.

If you're lucky, it's a blown head gasket. More likely, you've got a crack in the water jacket.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

2nd BD. The color doesn't matter they are the most likely causes.
