it was the head gasket

Postby Mac from NS » Tue Jun 06, 2006 6:04 am

Got the head off and the gasket was burnt between 2 and 3 . Got the valves out last night, they look to be in good shape.HOW ON EARTH AM I GOING TO GET THEM VALVE LOCKS BACK IN ??? I think if I turned the tractor on her side might help :wink:.Igot them out with a magnet screwdriver and I don't think that will work in reverse to put them back in. THANKS FOR THE HELP

HI Mac

I put grease on the inside of the lock. Get it close on my finger. And with a small screwdriver in the other hand use that to slide it up and into place. Make shure you have rags in the bottom of the oil galley so if it falls it does not go throught a drain hole into the oil pan.

Also use a strait edge along the head and block sealing surfaces put a flashlight behind it to see if it is flat do it fron a few differnt angles. Front to back side to side etc. So you know if it need to be resurfaced first.

Good luck Billy

As Cowboy says. Same basic technique.

Wheel bearing grease and flat bladed screwdriver. A dab of grease on the inside of the keeper and enough on the outside to stick the keeper to the screwdriver. Just a small dab of grease.

I took an chep pair of nedle nose pliers and glued pieces of refrigertor magnets to the end. I put grease on the inside of the keeper as has been suggested. just put the keepers in place with the pliers, and slid them back.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Mac,

While you're in town, pick up one of the pocket screwdrivers with the magnet on the other end. Holding the keeper close to the thick (bottom) end with the magnet, use the grease to stick the first keeper in the groove and slide it around to the back so you have a clear shot at the second one. Once the keeper is entered in the groove you can release the magnet by sliding it end ways off the keeper. 15 or 20 minutes tops you'll have them all in place. :shock:

I'm glad you found the reason for the compression problem. :D

Got the valves in , bigest problem was the spring compresser that I was using was in my way . I got a differant one from a friend and that worked fine .Put a straight edge on the head , 3th out in the middle going from corner to corner . down both sides was good
