The chunk that's missing is part of the sleeve not the block. Like I said before, the cracks between the cylinders is common. As long as it isn't split down to the main bearings it will be ok. My TO-20 is split between every cylinder and I put a lot of hours on mine every year doing all the plowing,cultivating, raking hay and I do not have any problems at all with water and oil mixing. Take the rods loose and remove the pistons. Then knock the sleeves out. Clean the block up and see how far the cracks go. If they do not go on down to where the bottom of the sleeve goes in the block and the main bearing area then you are fine. Get new sleeves,orings and pistons and whatever else you may need after checking and put it back together. But somebody saying you need a new block just because it has cracks between the cylinders is not true and most people that know Fergusons with continental engines will tell you that. It was a known problem when the tractors were new. Thats when they devised the tension rod fix.

So I need to unbolt the rods from the crank and knock them out the top of cylinders, then I'm assuming the sleeves also knock out the top of block? I will need new sleeves and seals, pistons, and bearings if the block is not cracked all the way down to main bearings?
