new holland LX865 1997
Posted: 10/25/2010 03:25 PM
Hello I bought a New Holland LX865 I got it from an auction and seem to run good when I picked it up seem to be alittle rough at start up but all hydraulics were running good. Loaded it up and took it home, worked it about an hour and started to hear a rod hammering. I am wanting to know if anyone know what kind of motor this is in it. I have been told it is a 3cylinder diesel Made by ford but was wondering if anyone might have any specs on it?Thanks

It may have a NH engine in it too, a few of their machines run their own branded engine. If you call your dealer they may be able to confirm this if you give them the serial number.

The LX 865's had two different setups in them. Internally I don't believe there was much of a difference, but the fuel systems and the air cleaner setups were different. I know at one point they also switched from a 1/2" head bolt to a 9/16" head bolt. They are a parent bore block, but a machine shop should be able to sleeve the bore if it is chewed up. Have you narrowed it down to a particular cylinder? You can start the engine and crack injector lines to see which one makes the hammering go away. I have seen fuel problems make a make an engine knock. It may be worth pulling the injectors out and having a shop pop test the injectors to make sure they are atomizing the fuel properly and at the correct pressure. This may save you an engine overhaul. If its not that then its most likely a tired engine. How many hours are on the machine? Has anyone used ether on the engine when it was hard starting? The NH engines don't like ether at all. I suspect it had some problems before it made it to the auction, usually machines are at an auction for a reason, someone wanted to get what they could out of it.
