Seeing that there is no anti-freeze in the oil from what I can tell, I think I'm going to start with a fresh oil change and run it hard for an hour or so. This tractor sat for 99.9% of the time in an unheated garage. Then I came along and heated it up for a 1/2 hour or so on a 25 day and shut it off. I'm HOPING just condensation but prepared for more. I'm hoping the bubbles are cavitation but we'll see. I never checked for them when it was hot. If I do need to pull the head, I think I'll give it a try myself. Will the head, rocker ams, valves and all the goodies come off as one unit? Or do the rockers, valves and all have to come off before I pull the head? If not, I'll take the whole head assembly to a machine shop and let them work on it and check for cracks. Thanks again guys! One of many more to come , I'm sure.....Oh yea, I did bring it home today.....The saga begins.....

Hood off first then the gas tank then the valve cover then the rocker arm assembly etc. If you do not have it pick up an FO-20 I-T manual it will help you a lot. If you need one on one help feel free to e-mail me and if you do I will give you my phone number if you need person to person help which I have done many times. Blew a head gasket on my 841 years ago. It has a loader on it so was not real fun job but did it from start to finish in less then 8 hours but I was younger and in better shape then LOL
