Neighbourhood wizard has a 611B gas COM torn apart. I think he has been through the engine and has a fair amount of money into it. He started into the transmission and is wondering how far to go (money wise) or just part it out. Has WFE and Eagle hitch. A rare bird in this end of the world. Any thoughts on this thing?

Has he encountered a problem in the transmission? Baring a significant problem with the COM clutch system, there is usually not a lot that goes wrong with the transmission and rear-end. If he has completed an engine rebuild, the biggest cost/potential risk should be behind him. The 600B series tractors have a fairly unique engine that is is getting pricey to overhaul.

My experience with these little "Rock Island" tractors has been very good. It's not hard to get upside down financially due to parts prices, so if he is doing this to get rich...he should stop now. Otherwise finish the restoration and enjoy a bulletproof little tractor for years to come.

We're about 2 hours northwest of Toronto, Ontario. I haven't seen the tractor and while Wralph the Wrench is an absolute magician with tractors and engines, he doesn't do the computer thing. I think he is fixing it for someone but I just don't know. Thanks for the replies. If I can find out what he needs, I'll put the word on here.

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]
