I got the poor old A running and fill the crankcase with water after the new engine was put it. Ok, whatever.

Someone suggested I check the pushrod sleeves going though the water jacket. I pulled the head off and put tight-fitting plastic plugs in the face side of the sleeves and then set the head, on it's face, directly on my bench. I then poured water in the sleeves to see if they would hold it or not. The water would drain maybe a quarter of the way down and stop so I assuming they are leaking somewhere. Was this a good method to test?

Next question, how do I go about replacing them? Tape them out with a perfect size piece of stock and carefully put the new ones in? Can you even get new ones?

Thanks

Yes ypu can drive them out that way. Some people thread the tube with a 5/8 tap and pull them out. DetwilerTractor have the pushrd tubes for $25.00.. When installing, I use some JB weld on the ends of the tubes,install the tubes and then use a slightly cone shaped punch to swedge the end of the tube near the outside of the head.

the tubes are bigger on one end than the other, and you can crack the head if not careful btdt

The original part# for the tubes is AA1615R. That # has been replaced by A2052R. They're available from Deere for $8.78 each. You'll need two.

Well, it appears when the machine shop drills the manifold threads out they hit BOTH sleeves and put a really nice hole in the side.

Problem found!

FF, I ruined one tube by trying to drive it in with a hammer. A piece of all-thread with nuts and washers does a slick and easy job.
Good luck, VH
