While the head is off, you might just as well clean out the block real good, and POUR in a PINT of aviation gasket sealer...... Nearly all those blocks crack between the 1-2, or 3-4 bottom webs... Don't worry about it,just put the sealer in while the head is off, and you will at least be providing a good seal at the sleeve "O" rings....!! FWIW.....!!!!!!!

Ron, Do you mean dump it right into the water jacket? and where can I get the sealer you mentioned?never heard of it, although my dad used to mention some stuff called Waterglass that would fix a cracked block and such,, I guess it was some concoction bought at a pharmacy....Thanks,,Jim

You can get it at Napa, or probably any parts store. Pour it right into the CLEAN water jacket---maybe use a funnel and a hose, so you don't get it all over the sleeves.... Good luck with yours...!!! Mine has an M&W D-17 kit in it, and it is pretty healthy...!! Our two have been pulling 4-14" Semi-mounted plows since they were new..!! Check to see if you need to re-surface the rocker arms...if they have any wear on the valve end, it is real hard to get an accurate valve adjustment... You can do it with a good file, if you are careful...

I think AC used the Chevy type rubber bands....I use the old ford style umbrella type, at least on the intakes.... You may not see much seepage when the block is cold....I would use the Permatex/Aviation sealer just to be sure.... ( in the block....)...Copper coat on the head gasket.... FWIW..

Ok thanks,,, I suppose the only way to tell if the cracks are there is to tear down the bottom end right? We bought this WD45 for 500 with a loader. All I wanted it for is moving manure and such until I get my other Loader tractor going, My other loader is a ford 8n with a Kelly Loader, it has been the best thing I have seen for working behind the barn and inside the barn small enough to easily move around, although the WD seems low enough to get into the barn and it will have about twice the power. I just hope it turns out the WD45 doesnt have any really expensive problems, I am on a low budget here, Thanks again,,,Jim

While you have the tractor down check the other "feeze plugs" and the radritor a good time for a new thermasstat also...
the shop doing your head work should take a small cut off the gasket surface ...to make sure it is "flat".....You can check the block with a straight edge ---- my guess is it was the head gasket......lets hope there are no cracks......

I am sure it was the gasket, I have had the water jacket full of water for the past 2 days and no change in the level, no more water in the oil pan either, I hope the head is ok, I am just waiting for my gaskets to come in before sending the head, I want to get the valve seals from my kit to send with the head, I know they will have some, but why pay for 2 sets...I will take some pics of the old girl and post them,,,Jim

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]
