Working on a 1928 John Deere D that I purchased in 2000 seized but complete except for an oil bath air cleaner from a combine that was bolted to the side of the hood!
I tore it apart in 2002 -finally got the engine machine work done in July 2011 -bore bored and sleeved to standard -finally started reassembly, December 2012 - check on former post - sleeve ended 1/2" from bottom of bore -oil ring travels with piston to the bottom of the bore, therefore the oil ring jammed on assembly -moved the oil ring up to the fourth compression ring groove on March 15th, drilled 3/16" holes, 2 inches apart all the way around the groove, die ground grooves inside the piston on the bottom side at the oil ring groove step to allow oil away from piston, have to order lead washers for head tomorrow, then we can proceed.My Father is 87, has recovered from a stroke, I want to get this project done so he can see it run, he didn't think we would ever get it all back together.
