Re: Block Crack Sealer

A BO John Deere is the orchard version of a B JD. It is a squatty looking little tractor also looks like a BR JD.

Re: Block Crack Sealer

It worked on a BO John Deere that wasn't pressurized. I don't know if I was so proud it sealed or so disappointed I wasn't going to get double my money back. I remember when I bought the stuff I...

Block Crack Sealer

Has anyone on the Barn used or heard of a product called "Fiberlock" made by K&W? I had an engine on a tractor that I couldn't stop the leaking on the inside of the crankcase with waterglass. I was...

Re: Stuck engine

The weather has changed to cold and work has picked up a little in the machine shop but as soon as I get my ducks in a row again I'm back on the TT.

Re: Stuck engine

Thanks everyone for the advice. I'll try and suck the evporust out and start over using ATF and kerosene this time. I'll also pull the starter and check that out. A model TT with a worm gear rear...

This is not Model A but Model TT fire truck. I haven't started this truck in 3 years and tried to crank it sometime ago and found it stuck. It has been stored inside and drove to the spot where I...

Re: Just another nice old pic....

I think I can see a Model T roadster pickup way down the line. I know it's not a model A but a good old Ford. I think the man with the dogs is going to start a fox hunt.

The truck on the right in picture #8 has a front axle with a second pinion built in to the rear of the front axle to operate the rear axle. The truck on the left has a different set up that I can't...

Re: Alternator vs. Generator Pulley

I know the alternator needs a small pulley but I have always had to make a special pulley for all of my alternators. I like a pulley about a half inch larger in diameter so I can make the grove in...

Re: Tudor front sets

Thanks. I'll try this when it cools down. Can't stand the heat this summer. I'm usually in Alaska in the summer.

Tudor front sets

I have a 1930 Tudor with the original seats. On a long drive I notice that I'm sort of fighting a battle to stay in the center of things with the original coil springs in the seats. Is this...

Re: Another random 'A' pic

This picture reminds me of a model A wreck in my neck of the woods almost 60 years ago. Our local bootlegger moved his shine in 10 gallon kegs that he hauled in the trunk of his 1930 coupe late at...

Re: Wind Wing Tension Washer

Re: The right way to use waterglass

I think I've figured out how I'll use it in this B John Deere. I'll take the bottom radiator hose loose and put a elbow on there that stands straight up and at least as high as the top of the block....

Re: The right way to use waterglass

I used lead washers on all the head bolts. The head that I used was off of a tractor that didn't have a leak problem. I checked the push rod tubes but didn't put pressure on them. I may remove the...

Re: The right way to use waterglass

I made sure the head gasket was the right match. I'm pretty sure it's the block that leaks because I used a different head when I put it back together. Pressurizing it maybe the answer. I want to...

Re: Wind Wings

My glass is tempered and it didn't shatter. Maybe I was lucky. I put them in the sink and ran water on them as I drilled the holes with a dremel with a diamond dust bit.

Re: Wind Wings

I have always had wind wing troubles. I've changed rubber, glued rubber, changed to s.a.e. screws and still had them to slide down and lost one. Someone on here years back said to mark your glass...
