As far as the block goes, if the block only has a hole in it, do you think you could repair the hole with some epoxy filler or JB weld, Rick? i know he"ll need a new cam and crank and rods, etc but maybe the block might be salvagable.

I've got a Jubilee 134 engine that blew rod No 1 through the oil pump and cam and out the side. I had the rod journal ground 0.010 undersize. I found used camshaft and oil pump and piston and rod. I had a friend weld in a piece of thin stainless steel that was domed up a bit, so that when it shrunk it had some give in it. I'm going to try it in the tractor. Bought a 172 spare just in case.

This same friend has a skidsteer engine that spun bearing on No 1 rod of the 3 cyl engine. He's trying to fix it up, but might find another engine. He's located in MN. You used to be able to buy an India-sourced new engine for just about the cost of rebuilding. They were built for Farmtrac tractors. It's possible that the Montana-Branson dealers might have some.

I have a friend who knows little if anything about tractors but likes old cars, he suggested the same thing, cover the whole in the block, goop it up and rebuild. I'm not so sure, I guess I would like to know what folks think of that idea as well. I should say that the primary use of the tractor is not everyday heavy farming -rather its cutting a field a few times a year, doing some dirt pushing from time to time and just a great stress reliever (althought the hole in the block did not do any stress releiving, I can tell you that for sure)!

A lot depends on how fast you want to get it running again and how much the individual parts cost. You"ll have to line up an crank, rod(s), cam, etc make sure that the hole is the only damage to the block , etc. Then compare the price and the timing to gather and install all the parts to the price of a used or remanucactured engine.
Bad car engine castings were repaired that way at the factory as long as the flaw was below a certain size and was in a non-critical area. However car engines are not structural to the chasis and that"s not the case with a tractor engine. See if the Ford shop manaul recomends this as a repair process.
