Just drug home a dead one and got the motor freed up. It sat outside for a number of years with the muffler off. Only one cylender was rusted. After scraping off the rust to help free the motor I can see that the cylender is pitted in a few spots. Has anyone out there ever had one in similar shape seal up and run ok?

I had a mm uti it needed a valve job. When I had the head off I saw a big gouge in the cly wall. The snap ring was gone and the wrist pin slid out. It was adout 1/4" deep I turned the piston around to put the good snap ring to the bad side and make a plug for the other. The snap ring Grove was gone. We used the tractor for at least 15 years for loader work and did not smoke or foul plugs. We sold it about 6 years ago and it is still working.

Steve, The answer is no on my end.I have bought a few stuck ones and I have found it is better to just go ahead and replace what needs to be replaced.Ya already got the head off I would resleeve that cylinder,check ring end gap on all cylinders and definetly hone them and rings if needed then ya won't be ripping it back apart again.Thats just my experience I learned the hard way on 1.I would atleast Hand Lap the valves also.

Yes, but it does depend on how badly it is pitted. If they aren't too deep, you can run it. It may burn a bit more oil than one with smooth cylinders and it may have more blow by. I bought a MM G705 that was stuck. It only had one cylinder stuck (had to sleeve that one) and two others with some pitting.
