Was given a 1948 Model C with wide frontend yesterday. Got it loaded and hauled home today. All tires held air except left rear. The tin is in excellent shape, motor is stuck, but started working on it after I unloaded it off trailer. Missing steering wheel. Sprayed Kroil on all nuts and bolts, dumped some into each cylinder. The only real problem I have run into so far, is that I cannot get the starter to come off. Is there any tricks to removing it???Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Thanks Keith

I know what you mean on that. Spray some of your Kroil in the hole for the starter lock stud. They just tap on the starter top and bottom and with a bar or large chisel with the cutting edge ground flat, tap rather hard where the starter meats the torque tube with the force directed away from the torque tube.

Well finually got the starter off today,Did exactly how Dick L said to remove it.Had already sprayed Kroil in the hole and around the mating surface of starter and flywheel housing. Thanks Dick... Got a little play in the flywheel but not enought to get crankshaft to turn. OLD school, just went ahead and removed the cylinder head. #3 cylinder was extremely rusty. Took a 2x3 and machinist hammer tried knocking #3 piston down. It did move, then took a bar pryed the fly wheel around from inside opening for starter.Motor is freed up now. Will have to access damage to cylinder tomorrow, also the valves on #3. Oh curious, is these engine prone to crack between cylinder. Is there any call for alarm if it has cracks there being it is a sleeved engine??

Thanks for the info
Keith PS wrong Keith, Dick !!!

Cracks in the top webs between the cylinders are common. Not a problem. The fiber head gasket will seal water from leaking.

Thanks very much Dick L for your info. I am not very well informed about the Allis equipment. Have several Ford tractors, but am broading my Knowledge on other tractors.. I have learned over the years if you have a cracked block on most engines, you better start looking for another. Again many thanks for sharing your knowledge with this still learning old wanna be mechanic....Keith

Reminds me of when my Dad bought a Cockshutt SP112 combine real cheap because the motor was stuck. After we got it home, I went with my hunch and tried to pull the starter but it wouldn't come out. Turned out that the starter was just stuck on the flywheel. Replaced the Bendix and the engine started right up. Hope you have some good luck like that.
