Subzero weather has given me a chance to work on the BK which has been sitting around here for to many years. I purchased this nonrunning tractor from a salvage yard. I was told it had a stuck engine with metal filings in the engine oil. I never questioned that and knew it would be major work. Well the engine was not stuck and no pile of filings. The pan was almost dry of oil but had a couple cups of a solvent smelling fluid in it, very old fuel maybe, I don't know. It has not run for a long time, oil filter marked 1999, the fuel in the tank is clear and almost smells like kerosene. So why did someone park this tractor and how would it get a bit of fuel or solvent in the pan? Where is the engine oil? Was full of coolant. The engine has brgs date marked 1971 the year of the tractor so I am going to overhaul it anyway. Just kinda weird why it got parked. If it had a trans problem and the owner quit using it I don't think they would have drained engine oil. Rod.

Rod are you saying you have found nothing to explain why the tractor was parked?

May i suggest that it could have been something as Crazy/simple as a bad starter and the owner thought it was stuck because it wouldn't turn over.

I say this because i actually heard a man proclaim his engine was seized up because it wouldn't turn over; it was a lose battery wire

Maybe pulled the pan, found filings, cleaned it with some fuel, and bolted the pan back on??? But I've never seen one unsieze itself by sitting for several years. It does make you think out loud.

Rod,How many hours would you guess this tractor has on it? I hope that you will be lucky and the trans will be good. Sounds like the block should be good with no antifreeze leaks.I think if I get my demonstrator going I'm going to take the cab off because its pretty rough and put a narrow front under it. Kinda like the looks of a canopy.Good luck and keep us posted.Darrell

Hi Darrell, the non working tach says 3600 hrs so who knows how many it could actually have. I think the trans is good but really won't know anything till the engine runs, Rod.

I have the engine completely tore down now and by the looks of things it was a runner. All brgs look good except the center Main is getting pounded out but that is sort of normal with high hrs and 45 year old brgs. Rod.

After a complete tear down I see no reason for parking the tractor. Must be a surprise coming yet, Rod.

Hi Rod. Your work never ceases to amaze me sir. Are you going to restore this tractor for yourself? I am glad you saved this good ol tractor from the dead. I look forward to see your progress pics as time allows. Good luck with this project. Take care.

Rod,

I don't have any special insight into why it was parked only to say you never know what might have happened. I'm sure looking forward to seeing it come back to life and hear what you find. Those are certainly sharp looking machines. Don

Was there any coolant in the radiator Rod? My gut, she dropped her water, and the former owner drained her instead of leaving the bearing's in it.
