49 Allis C Please Help!

Report to Moderator

Hi Everyone,
I had the engine completely rebuilt as well as the head on my Allis C. I used the original tanks for my radiator but the core is new. The head was resurfaced. I installed the head with a new gasket but I'm getting a bit of oil seepage from between the head and block on the spark plug side. Can I torque the bolts above the 60 Ft.Lb. spec? Also, I put a new thermostat in and the tractor is still running right up to 220 degrees. I opened the radiator and there is a cream colored film in the radiator. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might check the sleeve protrusion above the deck. Don't have my book handy but I think it is supposed to be around .005. Much more than that and you will have leakage problems you discribe.

Jeff; Sounds like you may have installed the head gasket upside down. This will block part of the water passage holes, causing the engine to run hot. As for the oil seepage, if the block head deck was'nt planed with head you may have a surface mis-match between the block and head. I have, for a number of years, used copper sheet to make head gaskets on all engine overhauls. It's a little more work, but, they don't leak. The copper conforms to and seals minor imperfections and surface angle mis-matches.
Copper sheets are available from NAPA auto parts stores. Hope this helps.

John what is the thickness that you use, and how do you cut out for all the holes? That sounds interest to me, I would like to try that.
