Here's another question,
Is the head on a Z120 the same as a Z129?
There's now a 3rd relative who says the head is from a 20.
Supposedly the passed relative bought a 30 for the motor. Went thru the motor and did whatever it needed. Had to listen how the guy always did everything right, never cut corners. For what ever reason, the head he put on it is from a 20, but he went thru it. I take all that with a grain of salt.
This work was done supposedly mid to late 90's, so it's been sitting quite awhile, but is free.
The crank is still free and turns.
While they would not hesitate in putting it on a tractor, they will not offer a guarantee.
I guess my options are buy it and try it, buy it and tear it down or walk away.
I have a extremely stuck 30 I bought. It's history is questionable...supposedly a head issue, cracked. My intention was to overhaul it, but I guess there is a real possibility the block may be cracked if it overheated.
I was at first thinking if this motor is good, bolt it up. If there is questions on it, I could pull the head and pan and check things as was suggested here. It seems here I should have good parts to work with where as my current motor will need sleeves and everything, if the block is good.
