H is running

I finally got nerve to put antifreeze and a battery in the H and with fresh gas it started right up. No antifreeze in the oil after four days, so guess the JB Weld in the cylinder walls is holding for now. Maybe it is the extremely tight fitting new sleeves. Anyway it can sit the rest of the winter, and if still clean oil, I will probably tear it back down and get started on the painting process. It is the first wide front I have seen around here that hasn't been welded or modified, so thought it was maybe worth it.

Larry last spring I pulled an old M that had been setting in my dads pole barn for 30 years out. It started up with very little trouble but it was getting a lot of water in oil. By pulling side plate on water jacket I was able to tell leak was in lower block. Since I had nothing to lose I poured in 2 bottles of Bars Leak and used it for several weaks pulling logs also did some fairly heavy bush hog work, burned over 100 gals. of gasoline.. So far it has not lost any more coolant and oil looks good. I know this is a band aid fix but it might outlast me. Thought this might be encouriging.

We put similar stuff in a WD that had an internal block leak. That was about 15 years ago. Still doesn't leak.

Glad to hear that you got the ole girl runnin. I think that I would work the tractor a little bit before painting it. Just to make sure that heat or vibration doesn't make the JB weld break. Nothing is worse than getting a tractor painted and having to tear it back down.
