Lots of cracked blocks. They were great for cracking between the cylinders along the top webs. If you get a good one you wil be okay though.

get manuals - early operators manual was also a parts book. Make sure you get manuals for early Unstyled tractor (prior to s/n 74330) if you have a mid-38 or earlier. email me direct and I may be able to help with manuals.

I am in the middle of doing my 1936 WC, and I know theres more then one way of doing anything, but for me I decided not to fool with the shims for the rod and main bearing, I had the rods and block machined to do away with the shims [ they didnt seem to mic out very straight anyhow ],I also found the governor worn out. I found the eye in the clutch disc to be loose, if you have a pto that runs into some money, bearings, seals, I think 85 for the packing. Your run into a lot on the steering, bearings, cork seals, getting the big bearing at the bottom and the ones at worm gear shimed right, the u-joint in the steering is proberly bad and the shafts it goes on may need buildup with new and maybe larger pins in it. Just got mine running, thats as far as I have got, still got to do radiator, hood, front wheels and reearend. Looks like I'm going to end up with about 6000 to 7000 in it. Hey but have fun, hope something may help some. Mike

I hear what you are saying -- I'm working on a 1939 wc that been sitting in a field for 15 years so I made a decision to get it running and leave it rusty and original for now, because I just bought a 1948 int. kb5 all rusty and original and I plan to haul the wc to tractor shows/ pulls with it. There is an old saying " the tomatoes you grow always taste better" so have fun on your restoration project.

Get a good manual, I&T or the AC ones that are reproduced. A good parts manual also helps, so you can see how things go together and what is "correct". After that, it's just like any other restoration, make everything like it was new. Be sure to put new cam bushings in as the cam is the main oil galley and worn bushings account for a lot of low oil pressure problems.
