I have an Allis CA with bent push rods. I suspect they have been bending a little at a time due to lack of adjusting the valves.The tractor was rescued out of a pasture where it had been sitting for about ten years,looks like it had seen little maintainence.It has started skipping,an exhaust valve isn't opening.My question is,what is the sequence for adjusting the valves? Or should I just adjust them one at a time as I staighten the push rods?I have 4 or5 which are bent.

take out the plugs and bring th episton up to top dead center on the compression stroke, then adjust those two vavles. most common reason for bent rods, is the vavles are tight in the valve guide. lube them with PB blaster, WD40, etc and tap each hammer on the top to see that they "snap" and do not drag, prior to installing the push rods.

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]
