Bought a 1951 Farmall M a couple of weeks ago to do some hay work on the farm and also to double duty as an eye catcher at my vegetable stand. The tractor had been sitting for a year with a blown head gasket and the motor was seized. Got my hands on it before the guy loaded it on the scrap truck.
I got everything unstuck and cleaned up real nice. The head looks good, the sleeves are not pitted or corroded, cylinders look good as well. I am now getting ready to put it all back together. I was wondering if anyone on here has the sequence for torquing the head bolts. My repair manual has 110 ftlbs but no sequence. Sound right? Also any recommended adhesive to use on her, I was going to get the copper permatex. Also anything else to inspect while I have it all ripped down. This is my first trip inside a Farmall and just looking for some general advice. Thanks in advance.
