Take the spart plugs out and put penetrating oil in each of the cylinders the put the spark plugs in hand tight. Let it set for about a week and try to crank it over(pull the spark plugs back out first). Try that a couple of times. If that doesnt work pull the head and oil pan dissconnect the connecting rods from the crank and try to nock the pistons lood individually with a punch (a nice wide one so it dont go through the piston) and brass hammer. And if that dont work get a different tractor.

a good way to prevent motors from freezing( in case you have an old tractor you dont know what your gonna do with) is to go out same time every year and just turn the motor a little bit. my grandpa did with his SC Case that had been sitting in the barn for the last 40 years. now its gonna run like a brute cuz someones restoring it.

My dad has a 77 to. My 66 is a little ugly but it runs like champ, when it comes to this old stuff ill take a strong runner over a painted show tractor any day because a lot of things can be covered up by a paint job.

i like a strong runner but i like decent body. because its just to much work for me when stuff has deep rust and is about to cave through to bend sheet metal and make new and all. its easier to pop a couple dents out, sand it real well, and make it look like factory paint.

Thats what i plan on doing is fixing the sheet metal but first i want to get it the way I want it Mechanically. There are some things like the side curtains that cant be fixed though so im gonna get some new ones from a place called Lynch Farms. I tried to fix the ones on it but when they were first stamped they streached that sheet metal so thin that its damn near impossible to weld back so in that case its better to buy new. In the case of the combine as you can see in the first picture it was full of rust holes so i had to cut it all apart and make new pans for the bottom of the head,l then when thats done i have to take off the grain tank and fix that then there is a hole rotted underneath the shaker pans so i have to plasma that out and refit a piece of sheet metal. That is why you always, always thoroughly clean out a combine before you store it. If only my damn uncle knew that. Evil or Very Mad

do not directly hit the piston. use a 4X4 or a oak lime that is a little smaller then the bore of the cylinder and a little longer then the stroke of the piston, trust me i have broke a few tractors free XD!!
