Thanks again for the great advice. Maybe a little background would be useful. I bought this from a neighbor with 1900 original hours. It was wet stacking when I got it and the head had been off as there was not paint on it. Thought by working it hard for awhile it might clear up, no such luck! Changed the injectors with no change, pulled head and had that rebuilt, new valves, guides, and seals, no change, pulled it down and installed new sleeves pistons rings and seals, no change, still wet stacking. Removed intake and exhaust manifolds and started engine, intake side was dry and spotless, exhaust side wet with slobber. Pulled injector pump and injectors and had rebuilt and tested, set to specs, no change! My point is all this work and there is no differnce from when I started. My thought is there has to be a cracked head, The machine shop magnifluxed(sp?) the head and said it was good. Sorry for the long post. Dennis

| Hi |
Sounds like it should be a good tractor if you can get it right. I would not want to make the call on changing for a new head. If it still does it then that was an expensive trial and error, If nothing the other guys have said works.
I don't know how the guys do the magnaflux on a head. I always take them to the motor shop and bring them home done/ready to go if it checks out ok.
I have heard of guys taking parts to the local friendly family doctor/hospital, or vet and having xrays done to find cracks before, wonder what would show on that head for a small financial gain in there pocket!.
