take the time, and do it the right way. Drop the pan and take the head off. clean out each cylinder as best you can. take the rod caps off, and get the crank rotated so that the connecting rods are free. put a 1/4 to 1/2 cup blaster or similar in, and let her sit for a week or so. Then, get some oak blocks and 1 cylinder at a time, drive the piston down 1-2" to get them free. Clean up the cylinder, and then drive it back up. When they are out, you can determine if anything is salvagable.
The only cost in this is time and maybe $20 worth of your fav penetrating oil (or acetone and ATF, whatever). worst case, if the pistons and cylinders are salvagable, you'll need a new head gasket and pan gasket. Heck, I'll donate $$$ to cover both to the club if you like.

| That's very generous Tom. I prefer to do things right when I can... its a matter of getting it to a place out of the weather. (I don't know what that tractor weighs- it looks heavy). Do you know of a source to find out torque specs and tightening sequence for the head bolts? |
