I have a Wd45 with cracks in the top and bottom... I took a chance and put in new liner O rings and then Jb welded the cracks, after that I added a quart of waterglass and it is holding up so far. used it today loading manure and it is holding,, I do plan on replacing the block eventually, I cant see using the bolt method when I can buy a good used block from Tractor Barn for 325.oo ,,,,Jim

very- very common. if it is only .030 inch wide or so, the head gasket will seal it fine. if it spreads over 1/16 inch gap, then you might consider some repair. there is a guy on this site "Dick" who has a procedure to screw a 1/2 inch bolt thru the water jacket inside the freeze plug, between no 2 and 3 liners. You probably dont need to worry about it. After 50 years, most are cracked in this area.

As long as it's cracked at the top you can spray the head gasket with some Copper kote and bolt it on, if it's cracked at the bottom you better start looking for a block.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
