Found the engine wasn't turning over all the way was locking up. Anyway decided to investagate  the problem  the exhaust valve  was stuck shut

Whipped the head off loads of carbon.  The engine now has been decoked  and valve's have been cleaned. Engine back in new chassis. Then have to completely  rewire the hole tractor. Need some new parts now

Very nice project you have there. Good machines. The top cylinder condition is very familiar to me from past experiences (and current ones). Certainly better condition than the sort I get.

Keep to updates coming :thumbs:

now its time to see if the engine will spark and bypass  the fuel tap and fuel pump needs cleaned out pipe work full of old crap

That will be the next job to overhaul  the fuel pump  and tap leaks. Sparkplug is sparking now to put a small amount of fuel down plug hole

Yes it offered to fire. I just tied a spare old  fuel tank that was kicking about the workshop connected  up fuel lines and it now running.

That's enough  for today still more to do the next few weekends

Hello Maxwell- 8 

Welcome to the forum I am interested on your comments about the Gutbrod Tractor on here, this is one of  7 my brother and I own,  I have had my own tractor since i was 14 and have found them fantastic little tractors. 

I use my tractors all the time also use them at Ploughing matches and have never found any weakness in them quite the opposite  fact they seem to be unstoppable are you speaking from  experience or some thing you have read ?

Could once buy a 312 and gutbrod with renault engine. It had flopping steering and floppy transshifter. Was the same as a WH D250.   But apart from that, Gutbrod are good machines. Had my first riding mower when I was 15-16. And my first garden tractor (raider10) november 2020. I have 2 GT's  and i am 19 years old. Hard to find affordable GT's in Belgium as most gardens are to small for one.
