Just a Thought

Postby Cub-Bud » Mon Dec 06, 2004 8:45 pm

My Dad and I overhauled the motor on Miss B ('45 B Farmall) earlier this year. I am not planning on starting it until after Winter. All internal parts (pistons and rings included) were coated with oil before re-assembly. What are the chances of the rings sticking to the sleeves and/or the pistons :?: Would it be a good idea to assemble Miss B enough to get the motor started or should I occasionally give her a few turns with the hand crank just to keep her loose :?: :roll:

Bud, I think a few revolutions every now and then would do it.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Like BD, I' squirt a little oil on top of the pistons and turn it every week or two.

If the oil pump is in and there is a way to put some in like you can on a cub I would do that too.

They are best preserved if never started after an overhaul. I good coating of oil will still be in place next spring. Spend your time on some other project!

If you want, it can't hurt to squirt a little oil into each cylinder next spring, before you start it.

do turn the engine over by hand once a week.. After I rebuilt my father's cub, it sat quite some time without being run, and it did stick. If the engine was left in the same position for more than a week, it would start to become difficult to turn over (even though oil was regularly squirted on top of the pistons). This is just one of the quirks of a freshly overhauled engine, and this will not happen once the tractor has a couple of hours on it.

I know this is an older post but I just had a thought also. Marine fogger oil that comes in pressurized cans might work good to preserve an engine for long term storage. I did my boat this year for storage. Easy to use.
