I have a 2007 New Holland TC55DA with only 225 hours on it and when it warms up it blows white smoke from the vent tube off the valve cover. It runs fine. All the guys I talked to think it could be a broken ring. Seems too new to have a broken ring. Any ideas? The machine only has a 2 year warranty.

Earthwrks,
Thanks for your opinion. I take very good care of this tractor. Change the oil every 50 hrs. and never beat on it. I can't believe I have to tear it down for rings! Oh well. I'll let you know how I make out. Jim ....

Ended out being a bad head gasket. Sent the head out to a machine shop to be checked. He said it looked good. Must have been a faulty head gasket from the factory. I have about 4 hours on it after getting it back together and it's running like a top! :)

Hey Chief260, Do you remember...did you have to remove the fuel tank to get the valve cover and head off of your TC55DA when you put in the new head gasket?

My neighbor's TC55DA is doing the same thing. We need to pull off the head. Any specifics or tricks that you remember which made the job easier for you? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Justin ....

Hi,
I had to take the dash assembly and the tank out to do the job. I was only able to work on it part time so I listed each step when I disassembled marking any wires. After replacing the head gasket I just worked back up the list reassembling. I do have the shop manual which did help some. I have a couple of pictures of it apart if you want me to send them..
Good Luck.
Jim ....

Hi Jim, If you don't mind. I sure would like to see the pics. Any chance you can post them here?

Thanks for the information. Is the service manual money well spent in this case?

Thanks again.

Justin ....

Justin,
I,m not real good on computers but I'll try adding the photo's.
I found a good used service manual on ebay a lot cheaper than ordering a new one. If you don't want to buy one I can fax you the pages you need. It's needed for the torque specs and the pattern to tighten the head bolts.

Nice Work. That tractor sure was clean. My neighbor's is extremely clean too. I appreciate the offer for those pages from the manual. If you don't mind, I think we'd like to take you up on that. 802-773-0121 is the fax number. Could you write on it to please hold for Justin Turco

I can't tell you how we appreciate that. Thank You!

Justin ....

I've moved since I did the head gasket job. I'll try to hunt down the manual and copy and try to scan it so I can post it on the site. Sounds like it's a common issue.
