Make sure you follow the directions on getting the piston pins and rods in the right spot on the piston. The do NOT center in the piston. The factory and I&T manuals cover the technique for doing it right. Last engine I did came with paperwork on it as well. Do it wrong and the piston pins will carve a groove in your sleeve. If they'll even fit in.

No. Old rod bolts are fine. If this is your first D-17 gas engine OH, you'd better be made aware of the centering of the piston pin, or you'll be doing it again very soon.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
