I got my 511b out of the shed, it started ok. After planting a small sweetcorn patch. The tractor couldn"t pull itself up a steep hill. It just started to lose power. I heard no strange noises. I shut it down when I noticed it seemed a little hot and smoke was coming out the breather cap on top of the engine. Now it won"t start or even turn over. It"s like something is bound up in the engine. Can"t turn it over to get a compression check. Any Ideas???

Classic signs of a spun bearing.

What do you exactly mean when you say a spun bearing? How do you check for a spun bearing? Would this be a bearing on the Crank shaft or Cam shaft?

Did you take all of the spark plugs out and try to turn it over?

How was the oil pressure and oil level when it was running? How about the antifreeze and temp guage? Sounds like it may have seized up, over heating and no oil are the first things that come to mind.

I pulled the plugs and it still won't turn over with the starter. The oil was up to level but I don't know about the oil pressure because that gauge doesn't work. I drained the oil and it didn't contain any metal pieces.

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
