Recommended Posts

Just had a look through the Cheffins online catalogue for this Monday, only a couple of 4 cyl engines in. They frequently have the 3 cyl engines in the auction. Iv'e seen them go for around £100 or so.

Actually tractor data list the engine a D750-A, not trying to be picky, but I already got it a little wrong myself working from old memory files

Then I knew I had a weeping core plug but on closer inspection showed some very odd , if you look where I have drawn the arrow some Cornish farmer has drilled a hole and inserted a screw?

WOW, the previous owner must have been a street sweepers apprentice. I thought I had seen some hacked and buggered tractors, but Nigel it will be hard to knock your tractor out of first place. Actually tractor data list the engine a a D750-A

 I would assume by the bodges, it had be left with no antifreeze in one winter. :rolleyes:

Probably the reason for the wooden core plug Norm, save money on antifreeze, when it freezes the ice pushes the plug out easier than it would a metal one, and doesn't crack the casting:fingerscrossed: Knowing some of the farmers around here, that seems perfectly plausible.:P

They drain the coolant,(water) out of the combines, irrigator pump engines etc, for the winter, and then wonder why they need new water pumps the following year:confused:

You also need to use the right type of wood to ensure the coefficient of expansion matches that of the casting:D

Well started to clean these off today, they are far worse than I thought, to repair them would take weeks with little patches every where, these are not obtainable any more new and I can’t find any second hand, so I have a cunning plan until I can source a pair
