Depending on the definition of burned up, if all it needs is a good rebuild, you can get a gasket set, piston, rings, and a new rod for $85 + shipping.  If you need to turn the crank to .020 under, that rod is available for $10 extra.  A .010 over piston is available, too, for no price difference off the original.

I will need to determine whether I need stock parts or oversize and get back to you Ben. Thanks for your help.

There doesn't seem to be any deep gouges in the cylinder wall.
The crank looks pretty bad but I haven't mic-ed it.
I'm assuming the next step is to have a machine shop mill the crank and cylinder?
By the way, I did not tear the engine apart. The PO had it in bags and boxes.

I need to take back my advice on what to do with your rust. After seeing your pics I agree with VintageIronCollector leave as is. Just fix the engine & go. Looks nice not too many around with that much paint.

The crank looks to have more aluminum deposits than anything else.  I bet they will come off with a careful application of muriatic acid.  VERY careful!

Thanks Ben, I'll give that a try.

Got too many irons in the fire. This tractor stuff is addicting. Getting as bad as my Traditional Archery addiction :loosing_it:

 

Anyway, the crank journal mics ok as is. Just needs cleaned up. The acid took the aluminum off.

 

The cylinder is a bit out-of-round but I think it will hone out ok to .20 over.

 

I need to finish the clutch on the Bolens, then I'll get at this. I've already got most of the engine parts cleaned up.
