well my parts tractor is split and i have the block out now i need to get the pistons out of the block, which will probably involve a press and a few swear words. then get the rods out of the pistons to put in the other tractor so i can start putting it back together. i hope to have this running by may 31 for our local tractor ride

Well, you haven't had much luck with tractors, lately, Nelson. It's gotta change sometime... maybe this is the start of it for you.

Try not to let all these set-backs get to you . once all you hard work is done on the engine you shouldn't ever need to to this again on it . You can then enjoy the fruits of you labor with a fine running tractor

back to square one, well maybe beyond it. I ut the pistons in and now they are in a bind or just stuck. so i have decided it will be the easiest to split the tractor and press the pistons out and start from there. if i have to order more parts then im going to work on my farmall to hopefully have it ready by the 31 for our tractor ride
