Smoking A Farmall

Postby jim turner » Tue Aug 24, 2010 9:01 pm

My A has so much blow by I can't stand to stay in the seat very long, I guess I will need to put a sleeve kit in it, does anyone know where is the cheapest place to buy a sleeve kit and gasket set any info will be appreciated.

I over hauled a B years ago. At that time the cheapet place was in my home town. The deal was that I had to buy 5 parts to make a kit to get the price reduction.

Suggest making a list of the needed parts. Then shop around. Auto parts store, implement dealers, catalogs.

It frequently turns out that the gasket set will be cheaper from one dealer and the piston/sleeves from another and valves from a 3rd.
I have an excuse. CRS.

i've done a couple recently. seems to me the S & P kit for the 113 is in the 300 to 325 range. my parts guy is RCS Diesel Services in Ludlow, Mass. 888-590-9992, ask for Mike in parts - tell him i sent you. drop shipped to your door. tear it down first to see what bearings you need, crank, valves, and head condition, etc. so you can order everything at once.
i think the last one i did (SA) was about $750 in parts and machine work. crank polished, 8 hardened seats (the valves were beat too badly to grind), deck the head, new valves and springs, bearings, S&P kit.
the kit you get may not have any lead-in on the sleeves, you might have to make a lead in tool out of one of the old sleeves.
