What is failed and broken? The block and/or sleeves? Was it freeze damage or run out of oil and put a rod through the block? How much are you planning to pay for repairs?

I suppose your new JD tractor is scheduled for delivery??????? YEA RIGHT!!!!!!!! I suppose you're not recommending for someone to buy a new JD when you won't or can't.

txjim, good to see you back. I was getting worried when you had not promptly responded.

My tractor still runs so replacement is optional. When the time comes when having to choose between spending more than what it's worth on repairs. It's gone and new/nearly new will be purchased. Parts and labour repairing the 950 is going to cost as much as trading the busted 950 for a new 2WD 3005. We are not comparing here Waterloo 50/55/60 series with those new and overly complex commmon rail Tier III & Tier IV tractors. I agree keep the 50/55/60 series Waterloo's running. If purchasing a small 2000,3000,4000 or 5000 series tractor. Do it quick before they are converted from mechanical injection to common rail emissions before the end of 2013. Manufactures are going to Tier IV now rather than rushing at the end of 2013.

Is it a water crack? Where is the crack? Could it be repaired?

Assuming it's the 950 compact tractor and not the Timberjack.

CH18171 SHORT BLOCK ASSEMBLY

CH18173 CYLINDER BLOCK
(INCLUDES PARTS MARKED (B)) (NLA)

Price when new back in 1988 Original price (USD): $12,000

Production: 1978 - 1989
Compact Utility tractor
Distributor: John Deere
Manufacturer: Yanmar
Factory: Japan


John Deere 950 Power:
Drawbar (claimed): 23 hp [17.2 kW] PTO (claimed): 27 hp [20.1 kW] Drawbar (tested): 22.12 hp [16.5 kW] PTO (tested): 27.36 hp [20.4 kW] power test details ... Mechanical:
Chassis: 4x2 2WD 4x4 MFWD 4WD (optional)
Steering: manual power optional
Brakes: differential mechanical expanding shoe
Cab: ROPS.

You have to figure what the tractor is worth as is? Worth after restoring to operational condition a 23-33 yr old tractor with how many hours and how much wear? All and total costs to return to operational condition. Price of new replacement with no wear, no previous abuse and full warranty? One has to run the numbers and figure what in your personal situation is cheapest in short and long term. If it's freeze damage, what else is busted? Repair or sell/trade and purchase? There is no perfect solution, all are compromises.

4X4, 41HP under $16,000

Google Salvage Yanmar Engines. Lot of hits. Will need to know your engine number.

It is owned by one family, not too many hours on it. Routine mowing, moving hay bails out to the animals, some snow plowing. It ran like a million dollars. It leaked oil where I didn"t notice it. I am not a engine mechanic person. My fault. 2 wheel drive, but everything else works awesome.

Check the Austin Texas Craigslist, there is a parts tractor that appears to have a good motor.

Don't know exactly which engine series Yanmar used in those 950's but here is the current Yanmar of similar displacement. And another Yanmar of similar power. Can't hurt to checkout the JD short block.Sometimes some JD parts are surprisingly reasonable in price.
