    This thread can be moved to the new Classic section.

    I have had this project on hold, but should get back on it soon.

    You can probably use the report button (bottom left triangle) and state where to move it in the message thread.

    This project is back on my to do list. Bought a standard crank and have it sent off for polishing or turning if needed. Also have a master overhaul kit, oil pump and other goodies coming from the local MF dealer. If anyone is interested I will post progress pics.

    Tear down continues


    The filter caught some of the spun rod bearing pieces






    This is a good reference pic for where the different length studs go


    Removing head studs


    While maybe not the ideal method it works (thanks for the tip shona13). I did find minor damage from sometime in the last forty years of someone else doing this same job


    Somebody made a mess






    Degreasing time


    Got some goodies




    Primed and block painted, finally time to turn the corner and start assembly




    The Crankshaft I bought should be ready soon from the machine shop, for now I'll continue to clean and prep parts

    Ran into my first problem. The sleeves that came out have a thick flange that goes into the counter bore of the block and the new ones are thin flange. Called the parts guy and his conclusion is I have a early block with a later direct injection head. He is going to order the indirect rebuild kid and swap it out for me. I thought from early on something wasn't adding up about the engine because this appears to be a 1972 model tractor and by then the engine should not have the rope rear main seal yet it does. Question: Does this combination of head a block work good or create monsters? Previous owner ran it for a few years like this, but did have #1 piston and sleeve replaced.

    I'll get a better pic later
