 Honda 6522 smoking at idle

I recently purchased a Honda 6522 and now have second thoughts. It smokes a bit at idle, and only at idle. Unit has 520hrs, engine is clean as a whistle inside and out and runs great but I believe the smoking at idle is not normal. I also have a Satoh BUCK that does not smoke at all, ever, that is what I am comparing it too. Smoke gets better once warm but compared to the BUCK, it smokes a lot. Color is a deep dark gray with a slight tint of blue in there. Should I be worried ? The unit so far has not burned a drop of oil and there is no blo by at all on the filler cap.

I also have a 6522 4wd with loader. It smokes like you describe and goes away when working. Mine has nearly 2000 hrs. and I love this tractor. Tip: If you haven't already, fill those rear tires with anti-freeze and water (safe a/f, of course). Makes a world of difference in scraping and using the front loader. I didn't fill mine for the longest time since I thought that tubless tires couldn't be filled. Started thinking about and didn't see any reason why they couldn't be.

Phil, thanks for the info. I guess if I can get 2K hours out of this tractor, I will be very happy as my annual usage is less than 50hrs. Since it seems to not be burning any oil, I will assume it is simply getting too much fuel at idle. I have talked to some diesel folks and based on what they say, that seems to be the case. It runs FOREVER on a tank so I wont worry for now. I only hope it never breaks in a bad way, it seems that finding parts will be an issue. Sure is built like a tank though. Again, thanks for your input.

Who made these tractors and for what years? I had never heard of a diesel powered Honda compact tractor.

I believe Honda was in the U.S. tractor market from the mid to late 80's to around 1996. They decided to not sell tractors in the U.S. any longer. I've heard rumors that liability was the biggest factor (probably still hurting after the whole 3 wheeler ATC lawsuits back in the 80's). I'm sure Honda didn't make the diesel engine but cannot find out who made it. The tractors are really nice, lots of power and reliable as heck.

Actually, I am pretty darn sure Honda made the entire tractor, engine included. I have never seen a more over engineered compact tractor in my life. The engine for instance is an OVERHEAD CAM diesel, ever heard of that in a compact tractor berfore? , not likely. Everything about the design of that engine down to the all alluminum valve cover(no cheap thin metal here) is all Honda in my opinion. It is 22hp and runs like an Accord.

The reason I feel certain that Honda did not build the diesel in their 6522 tractor is that just this year Honda celebrated making their first diesel ever. This got a lot of fanfare. This is not to say that Honda didn't have the engine built to their specifications but I find it hard to believe that they would design and tool up to build an engine that was used in just one of thier tractors.

The Honda manual says the engine is a GD1250. If anyone has info on this engine, we'd like to hear.

Phil, that is intersting, I guess I just assumed Honda made the engine because an Overhead cam diesel is major over kill for a compact tractor, which is kind of Honda's way of doing things. I sure hope someone out thier can answer this question with come degree of accuracy. Either way, it is a very nice engine.

Phil, did some quick googlin on the DG1250, seems they also use this engine in thier big bad boy generators, and most of them not sold in the usa. I also thought of one other thing that might strengthen your theory, the shop manual for the 6522 does not include ANYTHING about the engine, except routine filter changes etc. They detail to the nut, bolt and washer all other aspects of the tractor in the manual except the engine.

Funny, right after I posted, I did the same thing. We were probably looking at the same two pages of results.

I had one of the fuel injection pump bolts come loose. The problem is they are 5 sided bolt heads! No one has the tool. Finally got it loose and replaced it with a cap screw. Strange. The 6522 is a great tractor. I'm looking for a Honda backhoe for mine.
