Recently I got my father's Farmall B and brought it from Ky. to my home in GA. It has set for 20+ years and it is in bad shape. The engine was froze up however it now turns over due to Marvel Mystery Oil. I have no compression in any cylinder and when I removed the valve cover none of the valves or rocker arm would move when it is cranked.
Is it time to remove the head for a valve Job???
If so how does this happen and what is the procedure to replace the head (tourque requirments)?
Any help is appreciated, the tractor was maunfactured 5/28/1940

It's time to stop and find out what the real problem is. Could be bent pushrods, busted timing gear, or busted camshaft. It might also need a valve job in addition.

I am afraid that something is broken on the cam or your pushrods are bent. If the valves are stuck and you turn an engine over, those are about the only two things that will happen somethings going to give.
