Just to reiterate when I started my rebuild I was looking for the glow plugs, I did not know that there was nothing but compression to run this diesel.
You will need a tq wrench, piston ring compressor, and piston ring pliers, but nothing that you would not need for any rebuild.
Sorry to hear that, one of the first things I would do is send the head off to be checked make sure that it is not cracked or to short to be a resurfaced.
I got the kit from a local dealer, but you can find them on line, at
Check, http://www.link_disallowed/ they are a great help too.
You will need to figure out if you are going to do an "In Tractor" or "Out of Tractor" Rebuild.
I recommend that if you can split the tractor and put it on a stand to do it. If it got hot you should take the crank out and get it checked and the only way to do that is to split the tractor. If you don"t split it then you will not be able to change the last rear crank bearing or seal.
When you take the engine balancer out mark it first! Or you will have to re-tine it. A good way to do that is to pit the #1 cylinder on TDC and mark the two gears on the balencer, you can mark the crank but if you get it turned then the marks come off.
Before you get a kit you will need to know if the crank is under sized, your shop will be able to tell you. If you don"t turn your you will still need to get the size off the piston bearings.
It is fairly simple, I got the manual off Amazon for $24, it cover several tractor series but has the information needed for the rebuild, if you have the money you can find an engine specific manual which from what I hear is much better. but the I got was fine.
Yesterdays Tractors has a kit that includes the valves and other stuff to rebuild the head, if your machine shop will use those parts that may save you some money.
This is a great source for parts diagrams but they are expensive compared to others, www.messicks.com
