 synthetic oils in a diesel & black smoke when cold

I just purchased a 1050 with 3000 hrs showing on broken tach. Starts right up every time and needs TLC. I am going through everything and wondering is synthetic oil in crankcase and Hyd. system is approved.Also the engine runs smooth and no lower end noise but each time you accelerate it smokes a lot until rpm is reached. This is my first diesel and wonder if injectors need service. I have changed all of the air filters and the tubo does not have any excessive axial play in the shaft??thanks John Camponovo

 synthetic oils in a diesel

My Ford 1710 operator's manual says that injectors should be serviced at 600 hours. However, my dealer said that if it's not smoking they can be left till around 2000 hours. At 3000 hours, the injectors are probably due for service, if they haven't been serviced before. Maybe there are some service records some place.

I was chugging around doing a lot of loader & fork work late this summer, and started getting pretty good black puffs on acceleration. I just drove the tractor back from our camp about 10 miles on the highway. After the highway run, no smoke. However, there was some smoke on acceleration the next day, but less than before. I believe that the smoke is now normal. What I think happened is that the engine never quite comes up to operating temperature when chugging around at around 1200 rpm with periodic bursts for lifting. Fuel combustion isn't complete, and the engine gums up a bit. The highway run brought the engine up to full operating temperature for about an hour and cleaned out some deposits. The engine didn't quite come up to temperature chugging around the yard the following day, and so fuel combustion again wasn't quite complete, so there was some smoke. This winter, I'm going to partially block the rad if the temperature stays low. Basically, diesels run best when worked fairly hard. At minimum, a smoking diesel is cause for more frequent oil changes.
