Bought a D17 a couple of weeks ago at an estate sale with water in the oil, and engine locked up.
Well, yesterday I started pulling the engine to put one out of a combine in it. Drained the oil and found about 5 or 6 gallons of water and oil in it--after draining the engine would turn--got my hopes up, so pulled the head and saw cracks between No's 1&2 and 3&4....hardly any ridge in the liners--looked really good---pulled the piston and liner on #1 and found the lower web cracked to---DARN...Its a shame because the pistons, liners and rod bearnings I checked look really good. I wonder how sucessful you all have been repairing cracked blocks?? I remember seeing on here where someone drilled through the block and put a long bolt thru...I'm just curious, I'm gonna go ahead with the engine swap, since I know its a good running engine.

Hay..!! Don't get all upset.....it ran fine that way for 25 years...!! Just clean out the block, and dry it.... Pour in enough Permatex, or Aviation gasket sealer to COAT the ENTIRE bottom of the water jacket...maybe a pint.....even a pint and a 1/2.. The stuff never hardens, and WILL seal the water seepage...without tearing it all down... I pour it in, with a funnel, and hose, to keep it from getting all over the sleeves... My .02 worth...!!

I think the repair you refer to was posted by Dick L. long time ago. Archives should still have it, including pictures and text, or a link to his website.

The saga starts with the following message: Hey guys I have a decision to make. I know what you all will probably suggest and it will probably agree with me way down inside, but here it is. I have a picture blown up and framed in my "tractor room" of a Farmall M. It was my Grandpa's tractor, of which whom I never got to meet. He froze to death getting this tractor out of the barn to pull a truck out of the ditch before I was born. Anyway my dad and aunt had to sell it at the auction, ... [Read Article]
