Thinking about overhauling my 60, will the block come out with the fan shaft intact or will it need to be removed also?

Be VERY careful torqueing that head back on. Those 60 blocks can crack very easy. There is a step sequence to follow and do it exactly. Over torqueing will crack the block inside the cylinder at the stud location and you cannot sleeve it.

They , the parts will STORE, nothing says they need to be used in your 1st life time. If it ain't broke don't try to improve it.

The block will come out with the fan shaft in place. IIRC, you'll need to remove the top row of head studs to be able to remove the head with the manifolds still on. I do agree with B&D, time and funds permitting, to pull the governer off for a complete inspection, and put in a reground cam and lifters. Also check clearance on the crank main bearings. I replaced the main bearings a couple of years ago on mine, and they were shot. Poor oil pressure at idle, and pushing oil thru the clutch side seals. The fanshaft drive gear set was worn enough to jump a tooth every now and again. Good luck. Mike

Why not have a look at the governor gears, bearing and weights etc at this opportunistic time ? Why an overhaul ?
Have you considered the cam and followers during this overhaul ?

Actually nothing wrong with the tractor, it runs like a top but I have a 60 for parts that has been rebored and oversized pistons, head and block planned, with hardly any hours on it,just thought I would take advantage of the parts before I get rid of it
