OK. I am to the point where i can think about re assembly. I found out that the guy who i bought the tractor from had it overhauled, apparently not a good job, several years ago. He ran it some but was making lots of noise so he took it back to the rebuilder who claimed it was OK. The owner then took it home and mowed his pasture and it made a real loud bang and he parked it and that is where it has been for years. So in conclusion, the motor was overhauled and ran for only a few hours, probably not enough to hurt the block.
My question is
Can that Loctite be used on sleeves that were as loose as these and will they stay in place?

Probably but I have no way of reliably answering because I have no way of reliably knowing how loose they are. Have you determined thin or thick wall sleeves yet? By the S/N it should be thick - if the olds ones are "thin" you have more research to do. I suggest you measure and measure accurately before doing anything.

You bring up a good point about that serial number which is 409777 which by what i read is before the .090 walls were made???
I checked the number on the sleeves that came out and they are 6055E which are the thinwall ones. These just drop in and pull out with no resisteance.
So if this truely is a later block with the thickwall then that would explain why they are so loose.
I friend of mine will come by tomorrow with his measuring things and we can then tell exactly what we have.

According to John Smith;'s site the .090 wall sleeves were introduced at sn. 433578 so your block should be .040 wall. But if they just drop in with no resistance you have issues that may well be more than Loctite can fix.
