Hi 3000 hrs on a rebuild doesn't sound like a lot for a Deere motor to me everybody says they can be high hour tractors and not touched.

How hard does this tractor work and how regulars the servicing?, Im kinda wondering if the bores are glazed up and it needs a good hard days work to break the glaze. I have seen this with a few tractors before that don't run hot or just run round the yard/field and do light work. I guess it also depends how good the rebuild was too. These are just my thoughts on it but you know whats in your yard. Regards Robert

The 3000 hrs was a guess. I received this tractor from my dad who had the motor rebuilt about 15 years ago, but since the rebuild the tach and hour meter have not worked so I was just guessing on the hrs. I know the tractor hasn't done hardly any hard work for a majority of those hours as my dad quit farming about 12 years ago. So you have my interest. Can you tell me anymore about getting it cleaned out, maybe like a special oil or anything to run through it to? I also should mention the blow by is the worst at an idle as the oil seems to flow out the breather tube, but as the rpm's are increased it seems to disappear for the most part, but if you put your hand underneath the tube you still get a little oil on your hand, but nothing like when it was idling.
