i have a 1938 b allis chalmers tractor that my dad owned for many years but has also not been used in many years.my question is if there is any way to fix a engine that is cracked from one piston over to the other.it is a hair line crack.this is the reason the tractor had quit being used on the farm.i would like to restore it.i thank you for any advice that you could give.if the engine cannot be fixed what other years of this model would work to replace engine. thanks

if yo uare talking about a crack in the top of the block, under the cylinder head, between the pistons, that is not important. most are cracked in this area. the liner should stick up a few thousands and will seal on the head gasket. The crack is not important. Why was this the cause of the initial failure of the motor? or is the crack external?
