Alright thanks for all the help but now i got something even more confusing.

We were working on the tractor yesterday messing around with it looking at the diffrent stuff like the camshaft as i was spining the shaft back and forth with the pipe wrench. Id turn it all the way forward until itd stop then spin it in reverse til it stopped like ive done a million times since its froze up. well one time i was going forward it got a little less stiff when it hit top dead center then all of a sudden it broke over and made a full revolution, ( someone was looking up at the camshaft when it happened and no chunks of metal fell, no large sound or thud or snap). So i then started spinning it full revolutions with the pipe wrench and it kept getting easier and easier til it spun free like it was suppose to foward and backward.

I did this quite a few times making sure it was free, mainly becuase we couldnt believe it happend. we were then talking for about 15 minutes and we decided to see if it was still un stuck. So i spun it foward ( the way the engine should run) and it was fine. I then spun it backwards and it got stiff and finnaly stopped at top dead center, like it use to get stuck. I then spun the shaft forward and it was a little stiff but it did break free agian and spun free for a couple revolutions. I then spun it backwards agian and it got stuck top dead center agian, tried spinning it forward to break it free agian and it got stuck at top dead center too.

So i went from having a stuck engine, to a freed up engine with everything spinning great, back to having the same exact stuck engine i had before.

So i wonder if that changes anythign for anyone, any ideas agian would be great........

Also wheres the best place to buy push rods for the 260 engine and also teh rod bearings for the pistons on the cam shaft..

like JJL ask have you pulled any bearing caps rod or main that is about all that is left. sound like a spun bearing as bearing half is running over the top of another. good luck

Have you removed any of the bearing caps?
