I want to overhaul my Wd 45 and put oversized pistons in it. I saw an ad that had a totaly overhauled WD 45 engine with oversized pistons in it, but he wanted $1600. Is this to much?? How much does it cost these days?? I need to do something soon, mine smokes realy bad. Any help will be greatly apriciated.
Thanks
Ken

The guy that has the engine said that it is compleat except for the manifold, carb., and the fanblade. He has also started it to cheak for leaks.

The problem is the D-17 has the G-226 engine and while it is rated at 67 hp at the flywheel and give th D-17 53 PTO hp it could be too much for the WD45's wet clutch. It is a DOMINO effect.

1600.00 is not too much for a complete overhaul which I believe the engine of which you are speaking has had. I have 1700.00 in the last engine I had done. When I say complete I am talking about re-surfacing the head, the block and turning the crankshaft, new cam shaft bearings etc. On wd-wd45 blocks it is critical to make sure the o-rings on the wet sleeves seal correctly, that means some work may have to be done in this area. There are overhauls and then there are complete rebuilds, such as this engine. You can do it cheaper and it may or may not do the job. My thoughts are, if you are going to all the work, why not do it right?

Hi, Are you sure your WD-45 needs an overhaul. I'd run a compression test first, myself before I would jump in that deep. If is has say 110 to 140 psi compression. I would have valve guide seals installed without removing the cylinder head. This about two hours with good help. It can make the difference of a fouling spark plugs.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
