Thawing the Frozen 400

Have to give a resounding Thanks for the help on my 400, the wheels were frozen from a block of ice in the botton of the tranny case, locking the bull gear. A reddy heater and some tenting did the trick and once the case was hot, the water flowed out of the petcocks. Fired her up and she took off like a scared rabbit.
Again, Thanks

I was going to put my H back in the shop this morning so I could work more on the chassis portion (I removed the engine) and she wouldn't move! Surprise, surprise, after sitting in the fence row for 20 years there was water in the rear end and was frozen. Luckily, it got up to 45 degrees here today and I was able to push it back in the shop. It's thawing out now and dripping into a bucket. Next stop, CaseIH for fresh gear lube.


PS - what genius decided to sink the bolts in on the platform so they could have a place for water to sit??

Also check for water leaks around the gear tower, sometimes the seals can rot and disentegrate.
