You could try... British Tractor Wreckers
Unity, Saskatchewan, Canada

Phone: 1-306-228-3011


He list some Majors and Super Majors on his web site. No idea what freight would be like from Saskatchewan to AZ though.

Depending on the cost of an unknown used block, its worth considering a rebuild. You can get an engine rebuild kit complete(new liners piston etc) for less than 200 thats about $360 then you have a virtually new engine AND you can do it with fairly basic tools. MTF

Theres not much else for it but another block then. I'm sorry for anyone that has that problem. My Wallis threw a big end cap thro the side a couple of years back, fortunately below the level of the water jacket so I welded a patch right over the hole because another block was out of the question. I guess suggesting super glue or JB Weld wont help much either then MTF

Hello, I live in Oregon. There is a tractor wrecking yard up here called Farmland, they claim to have a Super Major or two in the yard. they have an internet site also and a machine shop that offers rebuilt engins/heads/clutches. Personally I find one of the phone sales people seemingly disinterested and pre ocupied, hope you do not get him if you call. Farmland is close to Salem OR. Maybe 20 minutes away. Good luck
