I am beginning a total restoration of a allis model'b'.After removing the head I found small cracks between each cylinder.Do i need to have them welded? I heard that it isn't necessary.
The engine is locked up,but has been full of oil,so there is no rust.Any tips for unlocking other soaking and tryig to turn.Thanks for any help. Henry

Those cracks are common on the B/C engines and if not real big then your good to go. As far as the locked up engine you say the engine is full of oil?? But are you saying the cylinders or just the oil pan?? If its the oil pan the reason its locked up is because it got some water in a cylinder and rusted the rings to the sleeves. Condensation is good about doing that. I my self would fill the cylinders with tranny fluid and let it sit a few weeks then if it has a starter set a 12 volt battery in it and tap the starter button with short fast taps as to sort of jerk the engien free. Most of the time doing that works. I know because I do it all the time and so for I'm 2 in 20 that didn't pop free for me

My name is Sean Brinston and I was 15 almost 16 at the time of this.My neighbour directly across the road who I had helped with hay all the time had this tractor sitiing at his house for what I thought was 6 years.
