Case 580 B backhoe engine

I believe I have a hole in a piston or a broken ring in my engine. I all of a sudden have got a lot of blowby 'steam' and oil blowing out the dipstick handle top as well as the blowby tube. I do not have a noticeable miss in the engine. What I am wondering, after looking at my service manual, can I take the front axle out from under the engine and remove the oil pan? I am hoping to do this as well as remove the cylinder head and just put sleaves and pistons in (as well as maybe fix whatever has caused this, a valve possibly breaking or whatever I find when I get in there. Does anyone know if this can be done without splitting the tractor between the engine and the tourque tube?

If the oil is that hot you most likely spun a bearing. If so cross your fingers and hope that it is not a main. DK

More than likely, the ring landings failed on a couple of the pistons which is causing blowby. The pan can be removed after the front axle is unbolted. This is called an inframe overhaul. Just follow the manual, and you'll have a great running engine.

RogerMI, thanks, I was pretty sure I could do an inframe on it. I had to run it this morning for a bout four hours and once it was warm it didn't have near as much blowby. I am leaning to a ring problem for sure now. It sure had a lot of blowby for a short time though.

Just wondering also my book says I could have a 207 or 188 diesel. There is no longer a serial number plate on the engine where it says to look in the manual. How do I tell which engine I have? Do they each use the same sleeve/piston sets, gaskets,etc?
