Well I found an NOS piston assembly for 25 bucks shipped, so the engine will go back together with a new piston and valves. The parts will be here by the weekend, but I didn't get a chance to drop the block off to get the valve guide installed and the seats cut. I had to make the trip to get the grader blade for the Landlord and wheel weights for the B1. The wheel weights will get the correct color off white paint before I put them on. The blade is in beautiful shape, and it won't be long before I'll be fixing the driveway with it. I'll be dropping the block off tomorrow, and hopefully they have time to finish it before the weekend,so I can assemble the engine.

Well, I'm still waiting to get my block back from the mower shop. They have been busy, but I should get it back by the end of next week with the new valve guide inserts installed. In the meantime I'm working on cleaning the years of grunge from the tractor. The rear driveshaft coupling is beginning to separate, but I have a nice original one to replace it with. It will take another couple of days to finish cleaning the rest of the chassis, and everything will get fresh grease and oil.

Is it A good idea to try to do piston and rings to an engine that seemly runs good? It's on a 1965 squire 10

If your compressing is fine and your engine isn't burning oil,there is no reason to install a new piston and rings. The engine for my B1 smoked for a bit on start up, and I found that the oil ring gap was excessive. The bore was in great shape and hardly worn, so I just honed it out and installed a new piston and rings. If you plan on keeping the tractor and using it regularly, it's not a bad idea to freshen up the engine. Rings, gaskets, oil seals and a valve job are all that's needed sometimes. The engine is back together and running great in my B1.

Looks great. I guess I should do a compression test. I've not had it long enough to know if it uses oil. The engine needs tuning for sure.
