Does anyone on here have a good labor guide or an idea where to buy one. Had a neighbor getting a head gasket replaced on his 706 with the 282 diesel and was wondering what kind of labor time the guide showed. Also had his radiator replaced if that adds to the time. thanks

not sure on the flat rate time, but to only R&R a head gasket the job should be done in 8-10 hrs. but im sure there is other things that will come into play once apart. for sure rad will add time to the job, at least couple hrs.

I believe you either have to pull the gas tank or split the tractor to get the head off. I know when doing an overhaul, they split them as it was faster. Probably not with just a head gasket.

Depends on whos doing it and how well they know the short cuts . Yes there is a socalled flat rate book that dealers have , myself i have never seen one . I know how long it tqakes me to do one by myself . BUT when your working on and OLD tractor there is no way to make flat rate because NOTHING is going to come apart like it did when the tractor was NEW and the book was based on NEW . I have done them in4 hours and had some that ya spent a day on . there is no such thing as just pulling and stuffing it back on . If the head gskt blew out there is a reason for it to blow . sp you do what is needed to do the job right the first time . So gee the head needs refaced and while we are at ti might as well do the valves to keep the recession or protrusion of the valve correct and that adds to the bill and that cost will depend on what the machine shop charges and what all is needed for that head so that 240 bucks to R and R the head Now ends up being a 1240 dollar bill. OR MORE. Think you can do it cheaper . Go for it.
