  • Sean, You're doing great! Keep at it but don't get in any rush. Be careful that the transmission is not also froze solid and you may crack something trying to move it to fast too far. Good luck with your project.//FB

  • This story reminded me of my life on my family farm in Indiana. I remember working on tractors several times, not usually for fun,but I still enjoyed it. My family have always been Farmall people. My father's engagement present to my mother was a 1943 Farmall H. Thank-you for returning some old memories to a former farm boy. Keep up the good work and if you every need any advice,email me anytime.

  • It has been said by some on this column that automatic transmission fluid will be better to break loose a stuck engine

  • Hang in there... even I have trouble on my tractor. I just back off at times and go for it again. Sooner or later it comes around and does what you want it to. S

  • Great story so far... did you continue with the diary? Have you finished the project yet? I'd love to red the entire story.
    Rusty Jones wrote on Saturday, February 26, 2011 (PST):
  • I have heard that putting automatic transmission oil in the cylinders will tend to free up stuck pistons. As for penetrating oil, try PB Blaster. It will loosen your mothers purse strings, as well of lots of rusty parts! Don't spend your money on WD 40. A waste of time.

  • Keep up the good work. Easy does it. If something doesn't go right or you get frustrated, walk away till you come up with another solution. Sounds like this could be rewarding for you now by always learning and later by achieving a goal. Let us know how you did and what model or any more history of the tractor. Enjoy your hobby!
