TRACTOR: The word TRACTOR has been derived from traction which means pulling. A tractor is required to pull or haul an equipment, implement or trolley, which are coupled to the tractor chassis through suitable linkage. A tractor can also be used as a prime mover as it has a power outlet source which is also called Power Take Off or P.T.O. shaft.

The use of tractor in India was established with the help of Czechoslovakia. Then tractors were imported from European countries. But after knowing the use of it, the demand increased dynamically. So many industries started its production in India to compel with demand.

In four stroke diesel engine all events taking place inside the cylinder completed with four stroke of piston. Each cylinder has two valves for inlet and outlet. The opening and closing of valves are controlling by cam shaft. It is driven by crank shaft with the help of suitable gears. The cam shaft runs at half speed of crank shaft.

The four strokes of piston are: 1. SUCTION STROKE: STROKE During suction stroke air or mixture of air and fuel are drawn inside the cylinder. The air enters the cylinder through inlet valve and exhaust valve remains closed during this stroke. The pressure in the cylinder is less than the atmosphere pressure. 2. COMPRESSION STROKE: STROKE The air taken in the cylinder is compressed by the piston to a small volume of cylinder. The fuel is injected at the end of the compression stroke. The ignition takes place due to high pressure and temperature. After ignition a large amount of heat is generated in the cylinder which pushes the piston backward for useful work. Both valves remains closed during this stroke.

3. POWER STROKE: STROKE During power stroke the high pressure is developed due to combustion of fuel causing the piston to move forward or backward at regular intervals. Both valves remains closed during the stroke. 4. EXHAUST STROKE: During exhaust stroke the exhaust gases go out to exhaust and valve and the cylinder becomes ready to receive fresh air. The inlet valve is closed and exhaust valve remains open during this stroke.

INTRODUCTION: INTRODUCTION This topic describes different terms relating to engine measurement and performance such as cylinder diameter, length of piston stroke, cylinder volume and so on but also the engine rating, efficiency, head balance etc. WORK: WORK When an object is moved by the application of force, work is set to be done. It is measured by the product of the distance. The body moves and the force applied on it. ENERGY: ENERGY Energy is the ability or capacity to do work. When the work is done on object, energy is stored in that object. POWER: Power is the rate of doing work. The work can be done slowly or rapidly. The rate at which work is done is measured in term of power. HORSE POWER: POWER A horse power is the power of horse, or a measure of the rate at which horse can work. TORQUE: Torque is twisting or turning effort. The torque is equal to the product of the force and its perpendicular distance to the point of rotation. COMPRESSION RATIO: RATIO It is the ratio of the volume of the charge in the cylinder above the piston at Bottom Dead Center and the volume of charge when the piston is at Top Dead Center. r = clearance volume + displacement volume clearance volume SAE HORSE POWER: POWER The SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) horse power rating of engine is used to compare engine on the basis of number and diameter of cylinder. SAE Horse power = D2N 2.5 D = diameter of cylinder in inch N = number of cylinders



FUEL SYSTEM IN DIESEL ENGINE : During engine operation, the fuel is supplied by gravity from the fuel tank to the primary filter. Where coarse impurity is removed, the fuel is drawn by fuel transfer pump and is delivered to fuel injection pump through second filter. The fuel injection pump supplies fuel under high pressure to the injectors through high pressure pipe. The injectors atomize the fuel and inject it into the combustion chamber of the engine. The fuel injection pump is fed with fuel in abundance. The excess fuel is by passed to the intake side of the fuel transfer pump through a relief valve.

MAIN COMPONENT OF FUEL SYSTEM: 1. Fuel feed pump 2. Fuel filter 3. Fuel injection pump

1 FUEL FEED PUMP: It is a pump which transfers fuel from the fuel line to the fuel injection pump. It is mounted on the body of fuel injection pump. 2 FUEL INJECTION PUMP: It is a pump which delivers metered quantity of fuel to each cylinder at appropriate time under high pressure. 3 FUEL FILTER: It is device to remove dirt from fuel. Usually two filter primary and secondary filter are used in diesel engine.



ENGINE COOLING: Properties of an efficient cooling system: An efficient cooling system removes 30 to 35% of the heat generated in the combustion chamber. Too much removed of the heat decrease thermal efficiency of the engine.

Method of cooling: (1) Air cooling (2) Water cooling 1) Water cooling: cooling In this method of cooling, the water is circulated though water jackets around each of the combustion chamber and cylinder valve stem. The circulating water when passes through the engine jacket in the block it takes heat. When it passes through the radiator, it is cooled by air drawn through the radiator. 2) Air cooling: cooling In this method of cooling, the heat is decreased directly to the air after being conducted through the cylinder wall.

Main component of cooling: cooling 1) Radiator: Radiator The radiator is the flat type with the core and water tanks combined in one integral unit. It is enclosed with the grill and fan housing which are removable for cleaning. 2) Fan and fan belt: belt A fan is mounted behind the radiator on the water pump shaft. It is driven by the same belt that drives the pump and generator. The purpose of the fan is to draw air through the radiator.



3) Thermostat: Thermostat A thermostat valve is used in water cooling system to regulate the circulation of water in system to maintain the normal working temperature of the engine part during the different operating condition.

Valve open start = 70*-80*C Full open = 100*-110*C 4) Water pump: pump A pump is used in the water cooling system to increase the velocity of the circulating water. Impeller type pump is mounted at the front end of the cylinder block and the radiator. 5) Water jacket: jacket Water jacket is cast into the cylinder block and head. Jacket is simply the passage through which water circulated around the cylinder, valve port and seats. 6) Radiator pressure cap: cap Water normally starts boiling at 100 degree Celsius. In order to increase the boiling temperature of water, the cooling system is pressurized. The Radiator pressure cap is set at 0.9 bar so that the cooling system operates under a pressure of 1.9 bar. When the pressure exceeds 1.9 bar, the pressure valve opens and let out the excessive pressure along with some coolant. When the engine cools down, the vacuum valve opens and let in air so that the radiator does not collapse inwards due to vacuum. 7) Cooling Cooling Fan: Fan Cooling fan sucks in fresh cool air through the radiator, thus cooling the hot water.

BRAKING SYSTEM: SYSTEM: Brakes are used to stop, stand or to turn tractor. There is different brake for every wheel. It is known as a mechanism to stop the moving vehicle in shortest time and in shortest distance. FUNCIONS OF BRAKE: 1) It helps operator to decrease the speed of machine. 2) It also helps during turn. 3) It helps in control in heavy traffic. 4) To stop a machine. TYPES TYPES OF BRAKES: 1) Mechanical brake 2) Hydraulic brake 3) Disk brake Mechanical brake: This is an internal expanding brake when the brake paddle is pressed the cam revolves with help of cable and link. It force the brake shoe, because of this force they expand and start to friction with brake drum, makes them slow and ultimately stop them with braking power. When the force is removed from paddle it is reset. Important parts in mechanical brake 1) Brake paddle 2) Brake shoe 4) Brake drum 5) Brake paddle 3) Brake shoe lining



Hydraulic Hydraulic brake: brake The hydraulic brake is an arrangement of braking mechanism which uses brake fluid, typically containing ethylene glycol, to transfer pressure from the controlling unit, which is usually near the operator of the vehicle, to the actual brake mechanism, which is usually at or near the wheel of the vehicle. Disk brake: brake The disc brake is a wheel brake which slows rotation of the wheel by the friction caused by pushing brake pads against a brake disc with a set of calipers. The brake disc (or rotor in American English) is usually made of cast iron, but may in some cases be made of composites such as reinforced carboncarbon or ceramic matrix composites. This is connected to the wheel and/or the axle. To stop the wheel, friction material in the form of brake pads, mounted on a device called a brake caliper, is forced mechanically, hydraulically, pneumatically or electromagnetically against both sides of the disc. Friction causes the disc and attached wheel to slow or stop. Brakes convert motion to heat, and if the brakes get too hot, they become less effective, a phenomenon known as brake fade.



LUBRICATION : Lubrication is essentially, required in tractor maintenance. To supply the lubricating oil between the moving parts is simply termed as lubricating. Lubrication of all moving parts is essential to reduce friction, wear and to prevent seizure. Properties of lubricants: 1) Viscosity 2) Flash points 3) Fire point 4) Cloud point Viscosity: Viscosity Viscosity is a measure of the resistance to flow or the internal friction of oil. Flash points: points The flash point has been defined as the lowest temperature at which the lubricating oil will flash when a small flame is passed across its surface. Fire point: point If the oil is heated further after flash point has been reached. The lowest temperature at which the oil will burn continuously is called fire point.

Cloud point: point The oil changes from liquid state to a plastic or solid state when subjected to low temperature. In some cases the oil solidifying which makes it to appear cloudily. The temperature at which this take place is called cloud point.


TYPE OF LUBRICANTS: LUBRICANTS: There are three types of lubricants: 1) Solid: Graphite, mica, soap stone, or steatite. 2) Semi solid: Grease 3) Liquid: Mineral oil, vegetable oil, animal oil etc. LUBRICATION SYSTEM FAULTS : Trouble: Low oil pressure : Probable cause Oil pressure gauge faulty Oil pump intake strainer clogged Oil pressure relief valve clogged Unauthorized grade of engine oil Crank shaft bearing worn Remedy Check gauge, replace if necessary. Look for oil leaks, stop if any. Wash Wash Change to authorized oil Required journals fit replacements shells

Trouble: Excessive oil consumption : Probable cause Piston rings worn out or stuck Piston rings side clearance large Large intake valve stem clearance in guide Remedy Replace Replace or piston if necessary Replace worn parts



We know that the horse power, the rear wheel depends upon the turning effort and the speed of rotation. We need different torque and speed for different application at the rear wheel but engine speed and torque are between engine and rear wheel, which gives variable torque and speed. This mechanism is known gear box. Any combination of gear wheels by which power is transmitted one shaft to another shaft is called gear train. The direction of rotation of driver gear will be opposite to that of driving gear. TYPE OF GEAR BOXES: There are mainly two types of gear boxes. These are as under:

Sliding mesh gear box: In this type of gear box one moving gear is pulled out and
pushed to mesh another gear.

Constant mesh gear box: In constant mesh gear box, the gears on main and
counter shaft are always in engaged position. In this the splined sleeve is made to shift to mesh with the gear to right and left or kept in neutral position.

Synchromesh: It is similar to constant mesh gear box except synchronizing cones

which are provided on its hub sleeves for equalizing the speeds of gears. This type of gear box is being used in Worldtrac range. It overcomes noise, wear/breakage & hard gear shifting problems.



PARTS OF GEAR BOX AND THEIR FUNCTIONS: FUNCTIONS: Input shaft: It transmits power from clutch plate to gear box Lay shaft: For maintaining the made of rotation of gears and changing the speed of gears on this shaft the gear remains fixed to prevent the gear slippage Intermediate shaft: Take power from lay shaft gears, in this shaft, gears remains sliding. Output shaft: Take power from immediate shaft and transmit to the tail pinion. Idler cluster: It gives reverse motion. Internal gear: It remains fixed on gear box housing and support the motion of planetary gear. Planetary assembly: It reduces the speed of working at heavy loads. HighHigh-low sleeve: It connects the output shaft to intermediate shaft and planetary assembly for high and low speed resp. Gear shifting lever: Shift the gears Locking wire: Lock the fork on shifter fork. Gear shifter rod: Given movement to the shifter fork and then gear while shifting them

The clutch is fitted in engine to connect and disconnect power stream in gear box and other components. The main motive of clutch is to make gearing easily and quick. It is located between engine and gearbox.


There are following types of clutch : 1) Single plate clutch: This type is mostly used in motor cars, it is also known as with the name of DISC CLUTCH AND SOLID CLUTCH. It has following parts i) Flywheel ii) Clutch plate iii) Pressure plate iv) Clutch spring v) Clutch release bearing vi) Clutch fork vii) Clutch fork ball 2) MultiMulti-plate clutch: clutch As per name, this type of clutch uses multiple clutch and pressure plates. It also works as single plate clutch and all parts are usually similar. This type of clutch is used in light weight motors like bike, scooter etc. In it all clutch plates have lining in their radius and same numbers of pressure plates are fitted in it.

CLUTCH ASSEMBLY: ASSEMBLY: There are following parts in clutch assembly 1) Clutch lining 2) Cushion spring 3) Torsion spring

5) Hub flange
