Is it possible for a mechanic with minimal experience on vehicles to overhaul a tractor engine? Is there a book that gives step by step instructions, for a dummy? Thank you for your input.

Late 70 or newer, has integral power steering that was added after 8-70.

Looks like it's been setting for a while, is it locked up or what is the reason for needing overhauled.

Yes, those pictures show that it is a 1968+ 3 cylinder 4000.

That is awful nice of you to offer, but we are in Ky, and he is a parts changer. Can't remember whether it is a 3 or 4 cyl. will send a picture if I can. Maybe that will help? third party image third party image third party image third party image

Pick up a I-T manual or Ford Service manual for your tractor, several on eBay for $20-50, get the correct manual for your tractor, 63-64 four cylinder models are completely different from 65-75 models.

I see your about 100 miles south of me.

Sure it's possible, an excellent learning experience. The appropriate Ford Service manual will have disassembly/inspection/reassembly instructions for all major engine components. You'll probably need to buy or borrow some precision measuring equipment/specialized tools and farm out some tasks to a machine shop. The process, however, is not for the unmotivated.

From your earlier post (where they tell you to always mention whether you have a 4 cylinder 4000 or a 3 cylinder 4000) it looks like you have a 3 cylinder model.
Where are you located? I have a 3 cylinder 4000 torn apart here in Minneapolis and if you were local would be happy to let you watch/help me put it back together. Or go to your place and help/oversee your overhaul.
If your mechanic has done overhauls on automobile engines he should have no problems with a tractor engine.
If he was just a parts changer on cars he may not. Don't know his skill level.

Maybe . . . but which 4000? There were two completely different 4000 models!

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]
