580ck water in oil

Just purchased a 580ck at auction it was advertised as 108 hrs. on rebuild, has water in the oil. When I filled the radiator I could hear the water running into the crankcase at a pretty fair clip. Other than just checking the compression then pulling the head would anyone recommend checking anything else? Would the most likely problem be a head gasket???????

Would a piece of vinyl tubing installed on the lower coolant line and used as a coolant level indicator be a helpful diagnostic? Wouldn't this tell me at what heighth the leak is occuring? I'm talking about static testing, not with motor running.

Pull the oil pan and you'll see alot more.Is it running down around the push tubes, liner seals shot, block washed out or a host of other problems.

I think the oil pan is cast iron and can't be removed unless the tractor is split. I could be wrong but it didn't look like it would be easy to remove. I was thinking about putting compressed air in the coolant system and possibly locating the area of the leak by sound??? Don't know if it'd be worth the effort though. What is the probability that I'm lucky and it's just a head gasket? If I check compression and get a low cylinder would that be an encouraging sign?

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
