Been reading for several years.
Decided to join and be able to get PDF of international lo boy engine repair.
Live west of Culpepper,Ark. And living on property purchased by my Father in late '40's
Grew up working a John Deere G.P. steel lug wheel tractor.
Father purchased a Farmall "H" in mid '51 and this came with a disk plow and disk and although no longer own it is parked on Woverton Mountain. still working.
then I have owned a JD 40 T to mainly bush hog and had a box blade to move dirt. borrowed by neighbor to level a truck load of gravel in his driveway. turning to right rear wheel drove up a log rolled and lost his life. After this could not continue to use with out thinking of it's easy to roll. sold and purchased a John Deere "B" ran good but still a T style so sold it Bought a Kubota FWD and learned how to repair hydraulic systems and all the time used a Farmall "B" to keep the weeds down and haul fire wood out of the woods. this tractor have no idea of hours but it worked . in the corn land of Mo. delta area.
Have rebuilt engine transmission and still has its exhaust lift for cultivators. just a little slow working.
several other tractors bought and sold.
and purchased a Farmall lo Boy engine and needing information on repair. the forum note I need 2 posting before can access the information .
Been retired for several years.

Welcome to the Forum. What do you intend to do with the engine?

Going to use the engine in a 7100 HST Kubota Hydrostatic.
Thinking will bolt in very much like the original diesel 3 cyl.
This Kubota the engine developed engine problems and the owner removed at clutch and sent off the be repaired. Then engine disappeared.
Bought the machine with 96 hours of use.
Had connected a Kholar Command Pro 13 hp it connected to clutch shaft same as method of Cub Cadets do.
Then one day tossed a rod and broke the cam shaft. and housing. so found this international engine complete out of a lo- boy mower being sold for parts.
Been retired 22 years so just didn't feel like giving 3 k for small Kubota engine then having to locate the air cleaner and exhaust. hydraulic pump
thanks for reply and sure will have other questions in short future.
