We'll we where hoping to get the DC going this weekend ,put the radiator in the other day and filled it with coolant today and it's leaking coolant everywhere. The radiator core is leaking and I kind of excpected that but the engine is leaking between the head gasket. There was a crack between the 1 and 2 cylinder on the block but it appears to be leaking at the rear of the block and the front also. Is it possible to put the head gasket on wrong? There doesn't seem to be any coolant in the combustion chambers. Any one have any ideas? I should of went with a differant block and new liners.

I have had problems with crud falling out of the water jackets in the head as I work it down over the studs. The small peices of rust fall on top of the gasket and prevent the head from sealing. The machine shops can't use the strong caustic any more and the water passages often don't get cleaned of all the rust.

Front of the engine might be the water pump, back of the engine might be the frost plug in the back of the head. DK

Are you getting coolant in the oil?? It is pretty easy to line up the head gasket, so I doubt it would be on wrong, but it might be possible. You may need to plane the head surface, also check the head bolts to see if the threads are clean. Sometimes the head bolts are so full of crud you can torque them down and they are still not tight.Run a die over the threads. Also, did you change the sleeves? Are the sleeve tops even with the block?

It doesn't appear to be leaking coolant into the crank case. I probly won't get a chance to get a good look at it till this weekend. If I don't find any coolant in the crankcase or the cylinders I think I'll try to start it and look for any other problems. The treads where clean and I didn't change the liners. I 'm thinking there is a chance that it could be leaking around the head studs. I lifted the engine with the studs to put it on the engine stand. Oh well!!!

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
