$10,000 engine overhaul estimate 826, OUCH!

I have a 1971 826 farmall that has a little over 7,000 hours and it has never been overhauled. Last spring when I changed the oil after it set all winter, I discovered about a teaspoon of antifreeze in the pan. Several have told me this is probably the beginning signs of cavitation erosion. I put some silver seal in the radiator at the suggestion of an old mechanic friend and haven't found any in the pan since. I was at the local Case-IH dealer the other day and asked what a complete engine overhaul runs these days and they said since it is the German diesel it runs about 10 grand. Can you believe this? Has anyone out there overhauled one recently and what did it cost? Does anyone know the source of short blocks to lower this cost? Thanks.

about 4 yrs back we had an 826 with over 12000 hours on it, frame out over haul, sleaves pistons, mains and rods, valves, new cam, old one had no lift left to it, worst part was the new damper pully on the front,, over $600. but the whole jobe was less then $6000.

I have not overhauled an 826. But have done Fords, Allis Chalmers, Cats. You can normally buy a factory rebuild for 5-7000 Dollars. You might check on this. Other wise I would rebuild my self. You can find good buys on kits on the internet.

we had a 756 that had over 10,000 hours on it and hadnt been over hauld yet , it didnt have much power anymore tough so we traded for a 826 . the worst thing u could do for a tractor is let it set over winter .

An overhaul engine repower kit from Shoup @ 1-800-627-6137 is available for the 826 for $1239.65. For this money you get sleeve and piston assemblies, pins and retainers, piston rings, upper and lower gasket sets, and complete rod and main bearing sets. This plus a rework on the head should put you back to running in good condition and at a heck of a lot less than $10,000.

I've heard that the German runs more along the lines of $5-6,000.. Sounds a little high. Think that's why we didn't get one.. haha

i sell the kit for a 358 cubic inch engine for less at 1150. then you have your outside cost ofcourse. with 7000 hrs.myself i would pull the engine and hot tank it and install new cam bearings and check line bore ,and recondion both ends of the conn. rods ,mag the crank install recon injectors rebuild the injection pump and check the oil pump and head rebuild . that should not go over 5000.
