Can anyone help me with a question? I am going to buy a wd allis....the man says it has a cracked block (water in oil) Is this fixable? or will a new block be needed? What would you do first to check the engine over to see how serious? Maybe it is not as serious as he thinks? Thanks

Victor; Water in the oil can be from various causes. Cracked head, cracked sleeve, bad sleeve seal, blown head gasket or a cracked block. To get a handle on the cause, do a cylinder leak test. us an air compressor and pressurize each cylinder to around 30 psi. Watch for bubbles in the radiator. Be sure radiator cap is off to aviod splitting radiator tanks. Cylinders should hold pressure or bleed down very slowly. Rapid pressure lose from any cylinder would indicate a problem, like a cracked sleeve, or head. Then do a cooling system pressure test. pressurize radiator to about six psi. It should hold pressure and not bleed off. If pressure starts dropping and there are no external water leaks, this suggests an internal leak. Again this could be a cracked head or block, blown head gasket, or a bad seal ring on one or more sleeves. It helps to have the oil pan off for this, as it makes it possible to see where the water comes from. In the event the block is cracked, they can usually be repaired. Hope this helps you.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
