Well I finally found out my problem............with the ole WD-45 I thought it was the governor but it all checks out like it should I think.......

I really tore into it this time the whole thihgs apart except for the major items

I need a new set of gaskets for my manifold
they are leaking quite badly on the intake ports

The old ones I took off had the gasket material then a metal/copper cap on them I was wondering if they still make them like this and if so where can I get them.

If not how would you old pro's take care of putting new manifold gaskets on it...........

Im also going to need a new valve cover gasket
since its off and cleaned up now.......

One more question concerning The oil bath air breather Im in the process of cleaning it out Im soaking it in gas at the moment and rinsing it out
Does the inside element slide out somehow???
once I clean it and let it dry what kinda oil should I use to fill the resevoir with.

Thanks in advance for your previous and upcoming tips and knowledge

You can get those gaskets from your nearest AGCO-Allis dealer. If you don't know who that is, go to www.agcocorp.com and use their find dealer function. A dealer that used to be an Allis-Chalmers dealer and most others will have them in stock.

FYI.....I like to rub High Temp Silicone into the asbestose gasket rings.....it keeps them in place, and keeps them from blowing out... This seems to really help, in the long run.... Usually, the exhaust rings are the ones that blow out..... Be sure to use Anti-Seize Compound on the studs, and nuts.......!!!!! Whie you are at it, clean the engine breather..!!

I agree about it usually being the exhaust gaskets that blow. Seems like I have to replace mine about every two years; that's why I equipped mine with brass nuts & SS washers. I use "neversieze" every time I put it together and it makes changing the gaskets practically a 15 min. job. The last time I had the manifold off, I found the exhaust ports on the manifold (especially the front one) had rusted away quite alot. I used a large flat file and filed evenly across all the ports on the manifold til I got down to some "meat" on the front port. A milling machine would be the thing to use, if I had one.

What torque do you use? on your manifold?
and what kind of gaskets did you replace the orginals with??

WWhere did you get your gasket rings from?

anti Seize is the only reason I was able to remove it this time...man was it rusty ...thanks to whoever put it together last......I think Im going to put new studs and bolts in it while I have it apart..
Do you know what the torques specs are??

I took that engine breather off its soaking in gas at the same time to...I dont think this has ever been done due to the crustyness of it....

thanks for your help

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
