Justin, Hi. Just a thought you might want to check. You didn't say what might have caused the engine to stick, so I'm just giving you a bit of my experience.

I have a little C that was running just fine (I thought) till it surged a couple of times, stopped in her tracks, and wouldn't turn over for love'ner'money!

The fellas on the forum were fantastic, and I surmised that at least part of the problem was governor associated. Imagine my surprise when I decided that it would be a good time to have the starter overhauled while it was down and I was contemplating a major overhaul, that when I went to pull the starter, the starter drive was still engaged in the flywheel!! Soon as I pulled the starter out, the motor was free as a bird!!! The last time I had started her up, she was hard to start, but that was when the drive "stuck" and was driven by the flywheel till the starter motor seized tight, locking everything up. Fortunately I did no damage to the ring gear. I did replace a well-worn governor and things are hummin' again.

So you might want to at least consider this possibility.

Dave of Southwest Michigan.

You know what I hope thats' all it is. Cause the man who gave me the tractor parked it 5 years ago cause he said it jsut wasn't running right and then next time he tried to start her up she was stuck. I will try that. I will keep everyone posted for sure on it. I am going to a tractor show tommorow so hopefully on Sunday or monday I can get thats tarter off.

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]
