I bought a 1954 WD-45 the unit is in restored condition with one exception. The previous owner must have been hard of hearing, since she knocked a rod loose. I am looking for a WD-45 block and a crankshaft or a short block.
Thanks for your help.

Why don't you see if the crank is out of round, maybe just bearings. Or grind the crank and put in all new bearings. If the rest of the engine seems to be good.

I mentioned that the previous owner was a little hard of hearing to the point the rod let go and out the side of the block she went. The crankshaft has sufficient damage that it would have to be welded then reground to make it usable.
Past experience with crankshaft welding has not been good so I am reluctant to go that route. The block as a last resort could be welded and that is my fall back plan if all else fails.
I figured I would eliminate all other options first.

Thanks for your input wdTom have a nice day.

Well now I get it, didn't quite understand you had a hole in the side of the engine and other problems.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
