Hey new to the forum here. I just purchased a 63 ford 4000 and was making a loud scratching noise and the starter flew off. Noise went away and ran great. Loaded it up and unloaded, popped clutch and fired right up and ran awesome. Pull the starter out and found it chucked #4 rod out of the block. I have heard these old 4 cylinder diesels used to have issues with #4 and just delete it, remove piston, and push rods and plug oil passage on crank. Only reason I ask is because it ran awesome on 3 cylinders. Or are these worth putting the work in to it to rebuild the motor? I've got roughly $1000 in it

What transmission does the tractor have?
The transmission and the condition of the rest of the tractor would factor into my decision. If all else is good, find a gas engine.

You should be able to buy another gas motor pretty cheap, maybe an older 801 series tractor, and pull the motor and part out the rest. That block is worthless and it probably ruined the crank as well.

You cannot rebuild an engine after it has thrown a rod through the block.

Look for another engine, diesel or gas.
