Bolted another final drive and wheel assy on the rear and one front wheel so I could unload the tractor from the trailer. When I changed the front wheel I notice the hub was hard to roll and rust dust came out when turned. Sounds like wheel bearings and seals to me. Does the bearing dust cap just unscrew on these?

Yes. But, from the looks of it, you may want to soak it in your favorite penetrant first.

Pulled a sticky valve with the worst looking seat. Took a wire brush on a cordless drill to clean it up. Looks to me like this will need seats put in.

that's pretty bad, hope there is enough good metal left to put a seat in it, the deck of the block looks pretty nasty also, that will probably need to be shaved also so the head gasket will seal

What's sad is all would have been saved with a muffler cap.

It would help matters but on the ole Cub the manifold is below the head surface and any water coming in through the exhaust would go with the gravity and go into the block.
God is good, all the time!

I'm thinking about using a different block that we already put hardened seats in. I believe this block was bored .040 over and just needs to be honed. We have the pistons and gaskets in hand so not much to buy at this time. This engine was for another cub project that needs more work. I figure I can use this spare engine until I can get seats installed in the original and then just swap them out.
