The serial number plate is there
#8054, if anyone could help with a year.


I am trying to find a pdf of the owners manual also.

The motor date is 1966. The first time the D4-10 shows up in a price list, that I have, is October of 1966. I suspect it was in the second half of 1966 when it was built. Just a guess....but I have a tractor with serial number 8386 that was sold in March of 67, to use as another point of reference.

The engine gave me some problems, I changed the oil and added some sea-foam to it and added some sea-foam to the gas (new gas) was running fine then shut off and was locked up. Pulled the motor off and opened it, nothing seems broken and it moves free now. I plan to dissemble the engine and clean the inside parts as well as see if something needs replacing. I have never dissembled or rebuilt an engine before but found a manual online for the tr10d engine that tells how to rebuild it. I wont get to disassembling until tomorrow night or Saturday. The piston ring doesn't look right from what I could see. My concern is parts if something does need to be replaced. Any advice?

Here is the manuals we have on GTtalk, I hope they will help you out.


Service manual on TR and TRA-10



Parts Manual on TR and TRA



This may also be a parts manual, not really sure as I didn't down load it to see.

I wouldn't put Seafoam in the oil. Use MMO (Marvel Mystery Oil) for that and not much! Thins it too much!

If you have any engine questions along the way we are here for you.

As for parts availability most are still available, let me know what you need I am a Wisconsin dealer.


If you have never taken an engine apart though I would suggest that any work that needs to be done such as honing , piston ring replacement ect  should be done by a small engine guy, or if you want to learn start practicing  on an engine thats cheap work on if something breaks

Can you post some pics of the engine internals such as cylinder bore, piston/rings, crank rod journal, and the rod big end?
