Remove the sparkplugs and pour a little Marvel or Kroil or whatever penetrant you like into the cylinders and let them soak for a while.

Hey MrFrost...CONGRATULATIONS on your "C"! They're a GREAT mid-sized Farmall (between the Cub, "A" "B" and the BIGGER "H").

Lots of us like to use this method of getting an engine un-stuck: You can jack up the right rear wheel slightly off the ground...put tractor in first gear...and gently rock the wheel back and forth to try to unstick the engine. The BEST thing is to TAKE YOUR TIME! Use KROIL very liberally in all the pistons (after removing the plugs). You'll find that it'll "seep" down along the sides of the piston walls and dissolve the crud that's sticking your rings. GIVE IT A TRY...You'll like the results! :wink:

I agree with Country Elloitt as usual, with one exception... I would use the highest gear. It would be much more effective. I'm sure he mis-typed. :D

Take your time!

If I remember corredtly, (happens occasionally) the C has wet sleeves, so removing a sleeve and piston assembly to reapir or replace should not be too dificult. Alos as was stated earlier, tow it in highest gear (4th on a C) when trying to break it loose.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

breakin it

Postby cityfarmer » Sun Jan 29, 2006 11:28 pm

1. rock it in 4th gear
2. get the crank start and try pressure with that
3. if that still doesn't work get a pto shaft put the pto in gear and determine which way the motor wants to spin and apply pressure using both the crank start and pto.
4. Pull the head off and apply pressure to the pistons themselves

*REMEMBER GO SLOW, IF SOMETHING SEEMS TOO TIGHT STOP...You cant always stop and think up another idea, but fixing broken parts, espically cast iron isn't really an option.
