Used Car Guy said: (quoted from post at 20:28:39 01/03/14) Ol Reliable still runs well but has been leaking oil out the oil breather for some time and I have low compression.....55-60#'s in all cylinders. The N starts like a champ but I believe the rings are ready for a makeover which will mean it is time to make some space in the garage and perform some surgery. I am guessing i will find the normal things when the engine is taken apart and will purchase a rebuild kit from this site. What dollar amount should I budget for after I have the motor torn apart? I am guessing $1400. Am I a bit low? Hopefully this will be more fun than expensive.

Keep in mind this tractor had been restored when it came to me and had a professional paint job that we had to match.... I did it to cheap but it was fun,,,,

Fill in the blanks are delete what you will not need are can do yourself,,, this one had a diagnostic charge ($80.00) added to the in-house labor because if a issue that lead to a engine rebuild. The wiring and 12V conversion was ratty so I took care of that. No clutch are axle pin work needed...Oil pump rebuild was covered in my labor ...
