Hello everyone, a quick question regarding my 1594. Got a replacement engine fitted off a 1694 and at the garage where the engine was fitted they left off the thermostart fuel reservoir and all connections. They plumbed the return injector line straight into the heater plugs, so no fuel going back to the tank, all going into the manifold. I only noticed it last week when fitting a lift pump, I used the tractor maybe a dozen times with this set up, I have fitted the proper set up now, but just wondering on any damaged caused/opinions ????

The Thermostart unite has an valve inside that shall be closed when the electrically heated spiral is cold. No fuel must leak trough a cold Thermostart unite. The Thermostart unite is faulty if fuel is leaking into the inlet manifold. I do not think that a small amount of extra fuel getting into the cylinders will be harmful.

There was no thermostart unit fitted at all. The injector return line was flowing like a water tap into the manifold. A lot of diesel

I can not believe it as there is no parts and connectors available to do what you have explained. The connection for the return pipe to the threaded openings for the Thermostart units in the inlet manifold must be specially made.

This is certainly an unusual situation. If you haven't already I would drain the engine oil (and filter) and replace, as the diesel may have diluted the engine oil and raised the 'oil' level.
