I tore down my Ferguson TO35 and found cracks across the top of the block and after removing the liners I coumd that 2 of the lower webs for cylinders 2,3 ad 3,4 are also cracked. Is there a recommended way to fix this such as "furnace brazing"? I am having teouble locating another engine or block. I use this tractor only for brush hogging and finish mowing along with some grading the drive. Any input would be greatly, thanks.[/b]

Ptfarmer,

Cross bolting works to keep the block from cracking more on the top and from spreading to the bottom. My block is cracked top and bottom. The local engine block repair shop said furnace brazing is most likely the only method that might work. Block distortion may occur when furnace grazed. The block would need machined where the sleeves fit after brazing. The machine shop said it may re crack during machining out the thin areas. Thanks for your input. I did find a block in Pennsylvania.

I have heard of the blocks being made to recieve crossbolts between each cylinder that will help hold the block together. The bolts would have to be small enough in diameter to no interfere with the liners. Having the cracks brazed up is another alternative. Maybe check with local industrial engine machine shops to see what they recomend.
