I just lost my engine on my wd45 three weeks before hay season. Anyone know where to purchase a long or short block in a hurry and what they cost? Shipping to zip code 49938 in the UP of MI.

Tony, what happened to you engine? Did you overheat it and seize? Run without oil? Is the block cracked? Oil in water or water in Oil? Old is sure right about repairing it. Parts aren't that high and most problems can be fixed. Even "the connecting rod through the side of the block" has been repaired with success.

It was burning some oil, but all of a sudden it went to burning a quart an hour and smoking like I was spraying for mosquitos. I am assuming either a sleeve is galled up or I brke an oil ring or something. It is definately rebuildable, but I need to do something to get me through hay season as I work off the farm and we are pretty remote so getting everything done in a few weeks would be impossible for me. If I figure out something else for the next month or two, I will probably rebuild it this winter.

It would be cheaper in the long run to rebuild the engine you have unless of course it threw a rod out the side of the engine. I have a catalog that list short and long blocks but there in the $2000 range which is more then a WD45 is worth. You might just look around for a good running WD45 and keep your old one for parts. If you where not so far away I have a good running WD45 for sale but I'm a good 500 miles from you

Thanks for responding. I know your right about the value. Tractors are not real plentiful where I am at and I guess it is a choice between going down to the local tractor dealer and spending three times that, or replace what I have. The engine can be rebuilt, but I am not sure I can get everything done that fast.

How much is a good used WD45 running where you are at? I have a trailer, but that would definitely cost some gas.

I've been asking $1500 for it but my price isn't set in stone. I know right now it has one little problem other then a weak battery the starter is going out on it. I think theres even a picture of it on my web site in the for sale area. I have both a WD and a WD45 for sale and a D-17 also. Even my phone number is in my web site

Thanks. I will think about it for a day or two. You are actually about 800 miles away.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
