I was wondering why the old M was missing. One of the spring retainers broke. Oh well. Might as well do a valve job while I'm in there.

that spring and retainer can be replaced right there without removing head. thats if you know the valves are in good shape. or do a compression check. luckey you have the safety clip on that stem to keep the valve from dropping and making big damage. thats an easy fix.

Yep - a little head work is in order -- I see some other fellas have had some head troubles as well -- My friend and neighbor had a knock in his farmall that started all of a sudden -- He shut it off and took out the sparkers and wouldnt Ya know it -- thru the plug hole on number 2 He saw a small thing in there -- poked and scatched and pulled it out with a small magnet -- it was a screw from the throttle plate out of the carb. quickfix at its best -- Roy

Those are some tough old tractors, my uncle could break a hammer. He had a hard time busting up an M. Then he got a Super M tore the trans out of it speed shifting it while towing a chopper and a load of insulage.

Also called slip shifting . It is a real art, need good musical ear and a gentle touch. It is just so cool when you can shift up And down without a clutch. Drove my friends VW van all the way home with a busted clutch cable. Over 150 miles. I had to do all of the driving cause he just couldn't get the hang of it. Car and truck transmissons are a little easier than a tractor. Gearing is too close together.
