There are always some things that need a little extra TLC! Hope they can fix it for you.

just an update i forgot i had straight water in the cooling system and in the beginning  of the fall it froze and cracked the lower radiator housing cracked the main engine and the pony motor blocks. thankfully no internal damage i put in the shop Saturday night and worked on it Sunday i have the rad pulled and the exhaust manifold pulled i am thinking of pulling the head and having it checked for cracks and wear  along with checking the cylinder bores the pony motor needs to be removed for either rebuilding or replacing depending on how it checks out plus the injector pump and the governor to replace some leaking seals

i don't think its lost i did no internal damage on the main engine just cracked part of the side out it can be brazed or welded back together the same on the pony but it needs rebuilt any way

She's coming along I found a guy who will sell me both engine blocks reasonably but I do have to swap over liners and everything on the main engine and only a few things on the pony motor plus I have some clutch work to do on it

Good to see ya here, Nelson!! I wondered where you've been.

 

BTW, if that's a 2U series D4, Utah Track and Welding in Salt Lake  on west 2100 S (right by Lee-Kay range) had a couple in their yard.  They also have a hot line for construction equipment parts and can find stuff for you... Call 801 971-89 three 9, and ask for Alan.  Tell him Steve Smith sent you.

Yah I'm still here just busy with work and working on my stupid computer again right now this cat and my JD 318 are in the shop almost done with the JD and just starting on this cat. Sounds like the main engine head needs valves and guides
