CA engine overhaul

I need to chase a coolant leak, on my CA. I have been putting off, head work for a year now, (always needed the tractor for something), I found it 3 qt's low on coolant, yesterday, and added it before using it on the bush hog. That caused me to pull the dipstick and look at the oil. the oil was grey, which makes me think water. So I am going to pull the head, and do a valve job, and have the head checked for cracks. If it is ok, then I have to look for sleeves leaking. If I have to pull the sleeves, then I might as well buy the YT kit, with the sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings ECT. It was 1989, the only time I have had to overhaul a AC B 125 motor, and don't remember, where the sleeves seal at. Top, or bottom? are the seals provided in the kit? With my poor memory, I should get a real mechanic, to help, but think I should be able to do the job. Hopefuly, some one will answer my seal question!

Might want to check the casting plugs underneath the valves before you buy an engine kit.

No one has answered my question, about sleeve seals for the 125 engine. Dick L do you have any photos of the sleeve install? and if you do , how can I access your photos?

They seal at the bottom with two O rings on the sleeves that are in the engine kits.

Below is a link to some of the pictures under (engine building). How ever you will have to go to the top left of the page and click on (public home) and scroll down thru the headings to find many more tractor pictures. The top headings are folders, the bottom headings with a pictures are just albums. Nothing in my site that will make you blush. I am not good at going back and organizing the pictures once they are uploaded. The very top folder has many pictures I have moved there so I have a half a chance of finding them to post. My wife tells me I am absent minded. I think that is silly because I don't remember being absent minded.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. DICK!L That was what I needed, I am anxious about the sleeve seals. It could be one or more seals, could be letting coolant, down into the pan. I like this tractor, and want it right, the first time.
