You probably have a W-Road Patrol. It has a WC frame with a long front end. I have one and posted several questions, and seldom a answer. You may wish you were a octopus the first few times you try using it. I use mine quite often getting ready to pour concrete, and my best advise is a very slow idle and remember it is a grader and not a big bulldozer. It does a great job, lots of laughs when you first pull in to someone’s yard, and lot of apologies when you get done. Dave NE Iowa

There are several ways water can get into the oil. Here are a few of them. Freeze plugs in the head are known to fail. Take off valve cover and change them, two I think. "O" rings around base of liner. Could be rusted out block here too. I had to JB weld mine around the upper of these O rings. Porbably not head gasket, there is no perssrueized oil passage between the head and block. Oil gets to the head by the external oil lines on the right side of the engine. Get reprints of original repair manual. Worth the money. Check it out. If not the plugs in head, maybe pull pan and look at the bottom of the liners, try to see where water is comming from. Keep us posted.

Yes it is a sleeved engine, could be o-rings on sleeves leaking, cracked block,soft plugs. Wd, wd-45 bolt right in. There should be a tag on mag side of engine riveted to the frame. Email me and i will run the number for you. We are completing a resto to working condition of numer E-1342. 1946. Tony

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
