Well the leak is in the sleeves not in the block. Any idea on how to seal the sleeves without removing them? My dad said there used to be something called waterglass or liquid glass, anyone know if this would work and where I can get it? I dont want to pull the sleeves unless I have to,,, Thanks,,,Jim

I got one sleeve out with a homemade "sleeve puller" there is a small crack between each of the cylinders where the sleeve goes in, is this a problem? is my engine junk or will the head gasket seal this???/ Thanks,,, Jim

yes, the head gasket will seal if the crack is just a hair line. most engines have this crack. I bought o-rings from McMaster Carr for my B engine. THey were Buna-N type which are resistant to oil and antifreeze. They are round when new, oval when you cut them off. Make sure the grooves and the taper in the block bottom area are very very clean before you reinstall. Chip off al rust then wire brush. Fit test the liners to see that they slide in easy first, without the o-rings.

Waterglass is still available at a pharmacy store. It is used in casts. Waterglass was mainly used to seal leaky head gaskets or small cracks in the head or block. The waterglass will not not seal sleeves as the sleeves vibrate when ignition occurs. Pull the sleeves and replace orings. Check sleeves for pitting if there is any replace them. Check block and sand with emery paper till smooth. Install new sleeves with oring assembly soap or pure vegetable oil. I would pull sleeves and forget trying to seal with some type of sealing compound.

Just go to your local AGCO dealer. If you don't know who that is, go to www.agcocorp.com and use their find dealer function.
