Given how many running Ms are still available and their price why would you start with a stuck M? Unless of course the end game is to completely rebuild everything anyway.

You might think I am stupid,but they free easier if you turn them up side down and soak them. Be sure to put them back in the bore before moving them very much if you want to save the sleeves.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yep!! Twice now I have tried every blend of mouse milk, and every magic potion concoction that was offered up and even recommended by the well meaning folks here on YT. In the end, both engines responded ONLY to drastic measures. Had to drill holes in the piston tops so I could insert a hack saw blade and cut the piston skirts. Only way I could get them out.

That is a neat find, tricycle front end and loader. Re brakes, undo the springs and remove all bolts from the brake pan. Pry all around while trying to move the activating lever in the pan, when you have space enough, squirt penetrating oil into the area of the activating lever. This lever is set into the transmission case and ran on a brass collar. In old M's and H's the brass collar likely wore out and the metal surfaces have rusted together seizing the brake . I got one of an H one time where I had to use a large crow bar to get it out and a lot of pounding, it took the better part of the day. Once off you can clean the bore hole and clean up the end of the activating lever ,install new bushings and grease and you will be good to go. For seized engine, get the spark plugs out and get some penetrate into the cylinders, I'm thinking rain water has got into the exhaust . Jack one rear wheel of the tractor up off the ground,put the tranny in 5th gear and rock the rear wheel back and forth,it may break loose. If it persists you may be removing the head and doing a tear down, but examine everything before you do that. A seized engine stored in a dry place means the engine was tight and and will likely be ok once it is unseized. By your picture there is no muffler or cover over the exhaust so rain has likely got into the cyliners. It is a good looking unit and with some work you will have a nice loader tractor

when an engine is stuck theres lots of advice but in the end there is a reason its stuck so just to save time and money just pull the head and then and then only can yu fix the problem cause if the engine is stuck so are the valves needing attention.

This photo reminds me..... I think a drive over the fender trailer would really be handy!

Just take the fenders off and drive over the tires.

If you get much snow where you live, you will grow to love that front end loader.

Live in snow country. This loader is going to the scrap yard. Tractor will be cleaned up/painted and will only see sunlight during a parade and tractor pull.

My opinion is, once you have a tractor with a loader, you'll never not have a tractor with a loader. They make many jobs possible that would be impossible or nearly so with out. gobble
