Re: Verdict in on my 5000 piston in reply to Bern, 09-18-2013 16:21:26
Ha! Real funny...pan off in a hurry!$@@&$!??@4 I'm still sore from picking up the front end and "inching" it forward!
I noticed something else when checking the other bearings...the bad piston needed a 5/8 socket, but the other three needed an 11/16. This obviously means it is a different piston? not matching the rest. The grooves on the crank wouldn't catch my fingernail, but I think it has to be honed. My wife thinks I should keep the tractor and wait to fix it when we have the money, so it's safe from getting thrown into the river for now.

I guess what I meant is that you got that loader and front end off in pretty good time, at least for someone who has never done it before.
If you can't catch your fingernail on the crank journal, possibly you could clean it up with some crocus cloth and make it work. The next step might be to invite your machinist friend to come over and take a look. Maybe he could work some magic on it with the crank still in the tractor. It would be worth a try.
