speaking of break downs, Updated, (I'm not a happy camper)
Dan isn't the only one with tractor trouble, The 1750 oliver spun a main bearing last month Couple of guys recommended a machine shop that the old guy supposedly knows Waukesha engines.
Pulled it out, tore it down, Took the crank, and the block over, had him line bore the mains, Turned the crank .020 under, replaced one questionable looking rod, Machined the rods for new one piece wrist pins, reconditioned the crank ends of the rods. and had him assemble the bottom end and install the pistons and liners.
While he had that, I painted the tub and front axle, $70
bent new tubing for the power steering line,$50
Fixed the tilt steering,$0
2 new tie rods,$130
picked up a new Ceramic button clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing,$350
had the flywheel ground,$50
new seal on the input shaft of the transmission,$8
tore down, cleaned, inspected and reassembled the hydra power with new seals in it. $22
new chain coupler, $102
New thermostat $60
New temp gauge and sending unit $50
oil, filters antifreeze $65
Picked up the engine, brought it home, $2470
put it all together Fired it up and it sounded so nice, ran for 1.3 hours and lost oil pressure
Pulled the oil filter and found bits of bearing in the filter housing. They came and picked up the engine this morning, I'm still waiting to hear the bad news

Throw Apples out the Windows, but make sure not to hit the Penguin.
If the world should blow itself up, the last audible voice would be that of an expert saying it canít be done.
