I'll play devil's advocate. Did you charge the oiling system, before you started it the first time? Did you spray either in it to start it right off? Did you cold pull it, with out having the temp guage up. Did you pull it a gear to fast and lug it class after class! I paid $500 to have my blower teflon coated. Makes it .003 instead of .006 . It was cold I had put it on and was getting it ready for Tunica Sprayed either to help start it. Motor pulled down and started squeeking. Bottom line ruined $800 blower and $500 teflon job and could have twisted timing gears. All my fault! Next time I sprayed WD 40. Idled it for a while, and let break in. I was the one who wanted it tight. I had also reduced the oil flow to the blower by 1/2 . The Guy who rebuilt it thought I was putting to much oil to the bearings and pushing it by the seals. Shouldn't have paid any attention. Bottom line expect no warrenty. We are looking for 3 times the horse power these old tractors had to start with, they just have a few hours in them at this level. Check every thing your self. Ask questions and learn what the clearances should be. The first motor I had big sleeves put in, the guy put sleeves in without no lip at the top and welded them in at the bottom. Need-less to say didn't work. Found a new machine shop! Hang in there it will get better. Vic
