I fully understand having to just get by for a year or so. Actually I respect it as What one buys provided the cash is there is NOT what gets one in finicnal trouble, It's the interest on borrowed money that takes one down.How ever be glad this is the CASE forum as a fellow named buick and deere on other sites would always say do it perfect. I recall starting out with a $5.00 farmall F12 and a DC case for $125.00 which didnot run.Paid $60.00 for parts DC to keep it going. Those worked for a time till I could pay for a new tractor.

i refuse to go into debt to do a tractor the right way and if its worn out your not hurting anything needs new sleeves and pistons anyway just might use a little more oil than it should now just doing it half right i will not do i rebuilt an ollie 88 for a guy i worked for he got rings and such forgot main bearings well the old ones were wore to the copper i refused to reassemble it the way it was with new parts so he fired me i said my name goes on this tractor till it gets redone again it was only i think $50 for the bearings no wear on the crank yet now to do this dc right your talking $1000 easy big difference

Since you already have a hole in it blow it out with a torch and clean the threads up with a tap. There may some drawbacks to this on a block, however I don't know what it would be. Tom

This may be a recommendation for suicide and I've never had the guts to try it, but it was used on C-130's during the VN War (Not by ME!!) They heated the bolt up with a torch (red hot) then sprayed it with a can of ether until it was ice cold and screwed them out with their fingers. Believe it or not. Maybe there is a non explosive refrigerant you could use?

Ted, Nitrogen would do the same thing. It is non explosive and non poluting, aafe on all counts. Nitrogen is readily available at welding supply stores. Argon, like for the MIG sheilding gas, may also work but I need to look up the boiling point on it.

JDman, don't know how big the hole is you drilled, but if you have a little room to play with get a lefthand twist drill from McMaster Carr about 1/64 to 1/32" bigger than the hole you have drilled. Using a reversible drill motor enlarge the hole while drilling in the counterclock wise direction. The stud will probably twist out when you start to break through the bottom of the stud into the hole and the flutes grab the bottom of the stud. If this doesn't work see mEl's method.

JDMan, We have taken quite a few out as you can imagine. We have had good luck covering the engine except where you are working and welding a flat washer to the stud and a nut to the washer, letting it cool, shocking it and adding pb blaster and gently working it loose, it will help that you have a hole through it as that will allow it to shrink a bit as it cools. Use a small enough washer to stay away from the threads in the block and weld a larger washer to the first one to get a decent size area to weld a nut to. I don't know if welding is your cup of tea but if not I'm sure you have some good ones up there close. I have heard of people grinding the studs out with a die grinder and carbide bits but the that would put metal fragments everywhere!! On your rings, if the rings are the three piece type make sure that the oil rings are expanded good and that the expander has not lapped over at the joint not putting pressure out on the scraper rails. That can very easily happen with the 3 piece ring setup and if it has the oil ring will be back flush with the piston, not sticking out so it can be compressed. Keep me posted. mEl

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see JD while I do not advocate gaps lined up I do not see that as a cause of that much oil burning. I'd be making measurement for wear and taper to see if all is in tolerance or near at least as these are not a fussy engine, I have seen many that had the scraper edges clear worn off the old cast rings with spring expanders and still not burn oil excessively. Since you were putting the head back on I guess its to late for a thorough investigation and measuring with a bore gage full length on the sleeve and at 90 deg. to pick up the out of round. Something severe is allowing as much oil as you describe to get into the cylinders, Don't overlook loose valve guides, they should have just running clearance and no more. Call if you want to discuss anything. mEl

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
