So if we do the compression test find a weak cylinder anyone have any suggestions for setups that are still farmable when they are done? Pulling farm stock but still want to pull a wagon, plow or run a 10 or 12" auger on occasion

Lets say you do take it apart, pull the pistons out, and if things look really good, you might get away with a new rings with the same pistons. If they dont look good, just go with a stock sleeve and piston kit. If its blowing fuel out the exhaust, then Id agree with the post below and needs to be burned out with a long work period. But if its truly engine oil,, its leaking into the cyl somewhere,, either bad rings, or valve guides. Just sounds like it needs to be looked at closer,,, that way you know what you have exactly and can eliminate any possible problems. I got a 93 7.3 ford, that started running rough,, smoked white and blackish out the pipe, rough idle, had the pump rebuilt, and it ran alot better,, but, about 500 miles later, it popped the headgaskets. New headgaskets and a good cleaning, and it runs with dependability. But, I belive the problem started with my 7.3 was the headgasket starting to go. Back to the 560,,,, there is only 4 bolts holding 300+psi of cyl pressure on each cyl,,, its not much to hold em down,, it will hold for a while,,, but eventually they pop. They are famous for it. But, can be assembled to last a while longer,,, JMHO. Chad

Ever see one catch fire, while trying to "burn" one out? Bout burned a 3010 JD to the ground the other day following the burn out method. Caught the oil on fire that had splattered out the exhaust pipe from all the exxcessive heat it takes to burn all the trash. Most of us have to WORK on em and still use em while we PLAY! Im just along for the ride. Something to think about there, and this is a young fella telling an elder,, "When you point a finger, you have 3 still pointing back at ya" so keep that in mind when you talk about others. On the money issue,,, put your money where your mouth is, cause the only way I want your money is to take it from you on the track. We got a BIG pull comming up in July, and you can do your best in front of a crowd of 30,000+ Hook up to a real sled. Talk to you soon. Chad
