I suggest you just bite the bullet and buy a block.
Here's why: someday you or your heirs will sell that tractor. No matter how nice of a patch job you do on that block it will still be a patched block and no one will trust it. So you will take a significant hit on the price. Far more than any savings you would gain by patching it.
I would get in touch with Jim UT as he often parts out these tractors and if he doesn't have a block now probably will soon enough.
SE AZ is not that far away from Heber City UT area where he lives.
You could make arrangements to have someone coming your way to haul it for some gas money.
It could be easily transported in the trunk of a small Toyota sized car.

Hi Ultradog,

You said, "SE AZ is not that far away from Heber City, UT area where he lives." That depends on what you mean by not far. Heber City to Tucson is a little over 700 miles. It's 835 to Douglas, AZ if you want to get just about the extreme point of SE Arizona. Those roads aren't the fastest in the west, either.

I live 45 miles north of Douglas. That makes the trip to Heber 790 miles. That's what I mean about not finding one close enough to go get.

Hi Richard,

I was looking on a MapQuest map to see what was 45 miles north of Douglas, and I was surprised to see that the area north and east of Sunizona had a considerable grid of streets and roads. When I drove to Douglas five or six years ago, the areas between towns in that part of the state seemed pretty sparsely populated. Is that area more heavily settled than I was aware of? Or is it just that some places have a good secondary (or smaller) road network?
