Been working today on my Allis 620 I went to get yesterday. The starter quit working on the former owner some time ago. Starter started growling but still started for a while, then starter turned, but not turning the engine over. So I pulled the engine up & sat on a board across the frame rails to pull the flywheel shrouding to get at the starter mounts.
When I pulled the shroud, there was a LOT of crud built up inside! So I got my Massey w/FEL out & hauled the engine, then the tractor itself down to the milk parlor for a hot water bath. Not pristine clean, but the thick nasty crud is gone.

Ended up the starter is fine, just that the mount plate bolts weren't tight enough, allowing the starter to drop enough that the starter gear was not engaging the flywheel at all. Got everything aligned & bolts tightened as tight as I dared!

I have some debt left on this purchase, so re-ringing the engine has to wait till that is paid off, then I'll pull the engine again for a rebuild. Soon as I get time, this "tired" engine will go back into service, hopefully within a week or so. Got a lot going on this coming week, so may take longer.
So far VERY happy with the purchase!

Looks like there might be more than one tractor on that trailer. Did you bring home 2 new projects. You sure have a knack for finding the treasures.

Yes, I got a complete 716H that runs like new, and a rugged 716-6spd without an engine. For quite a while now I don't have to look for anything. The tractors find me. Seriously....people contact me about them. Makes it easy except for finding money to pay for them. Had to do a small bank loan for this haul....and I hate doing loans for my hobby. Here's the 716H:
