JD400. I will certainly keep your offer in mind. I would like to try just for the sake of a challenge to get this engine running. If I find it is shot or beyond repair I will be sending you a pm. Thanks

you could also try shooting something like pb blaster thru the injectors - to get to the cylinders, you probably do need to pull the injectors

Im going to pull the injectors off and take them to a shop for a rebuild.  At that time I will start lubing up the cylinders with some form of oil.  Whenever I can find a manual on this engine I have to see about the rest of the injection system  Haven't had  time lately to check things over.

A while back there were some tests documented on the web of what worked "best" for freeing up rusted/locked machinery.

IIRC auto transmission oil mixed 50/50 with solvent worked best by a fair margin. Do a search for the details.

 

And post some pics of this gem. :)

DL-North, I was going to use marvel mystery oil but after doing research on the intenet I think i will try the atf and acetone.  I have read about that mix being a very good method of freeing rusted things in the past and will try it.  At this point I have nothing to loose.  I will post how I made out soon.  Probably will try tomorrow evening to start freeing up and clean things.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I always keep some of that around and it does a good job.

just did a quick search- be careful with the acetone as it could dissolve/damage some rubber parts - seem like a lot of folks like just the ATF and time to free things up - since this engines been waiting for "years" for attention, few days soaking couldn't hurt

Be forewarned that getting the injectors rebuilt may not be cheap. IIRC, it cost me $200 for the pair.

Update on the wisconsin diesel engine.  After having a chance to inspect the engine, I probably will not be able to use it.  The tractor sat in a shed for so long that anything that is aluminum on the engine is severely corroded.  The cylinder head has fins that are corroded away, the block actually has deterioration, all aluminum shrouds are half rotted out.  Was able to get one injector out but the other just will not budge.  The starter is frozen into the block.  Behind the flywheel was piles of aluminum corrosion dust.  The tractor itself is not in bad condition other than some surface rust with the exception of the hydraulic control valve handles rusted with corrosion at the pin that holds them onto the valve.  Not too worried about that, should be able to get it free.  One of the rear aux lines leaking fluid.  I think this is a case of a repower.

Too bad the condition is so poor; maybe try to find another WD2-860?

Another member here has graciously offered me another Wisconsin diesel but I just do not have the cash at this moment for a diesel. I found an Onan p220 performer with low hours and for real reasonable money. That may just be a great repower for the time being. When the time comes I can buy a Wisconsin diesel if one is avail and sell the Onan. When done properly, I can repower and not change the tractor at all. It will just take some long term planning for engine attachment and fabbing

I know I haven't posted about this tractor since May but finally decided what I am going to replace the locked up Wisconsin WD2-860 with.  I recently came across a Kohler 24HP 3 cylinder liquid cooled diesel!!  This engine is out of a Bobcat side by side and only has 52 hours on it.  There will be quit a lot of fabbing to do but am excited about getting the project going.  Will keep posting the progress as it happens and try to get pictures as well.  It is temp. setting in place right now but not exactly sitting as it should.  Haven't figured out the fuel tank battery area yet but may take ideas off the HTD1000 with the Mitsubishi in it but not sure yet.  Engine has to get mounted first.

My change of idea on the wisconsin diesel is the fact that if I would find one and it breaks or something happens to it I am in the same boat with not parts avail.  This Kohler is pretty popular being in Polaris and Bobcat machines not to mention others.  I really do not want to sell the HT so resale or origionallity is not great concern.  Long term goals is a front end loader and 3 point hitch on rear.  Just a fun tractor to have around the house.
