This message is a Question subject matter of an archived post. I am trying to reactivate this thread for IH 504 utility w/ D188 Diesel head gasket, and oil passage/water seal inserts, showing "failing inserts from coolant passages" Posted by 1370rod on January 21, 2015.

Having recently acquired a 504 utility w/ D188 due to exhaust "spewing out green coolant" after trying to start by past owner when tractor sat through the "Record Term (2 weeks) of below freezing temps of 17F-25 F degrees F" last January 2018. Since that time PO also found dipstick tube filled to top with what looks like water, which I assume is coolant.

What I am in process of doing is tearing down to determine failure.
During durations of freezing weather it is understood the importance of anti-freeze protective levels. I can only assume it had antifreeze in tractor by spewing out distinguishable green coolant, but freeze protection is unknown/mute point for now.

Does the D188 have a reputation of pushing out water jacket (freeze plugs) in certain areas, such as under valve cover gasket?
I am thinking head gasket let go, since coolant was blown out exhaust upon last cranking attempt and filling crankcase with coolant/water by visual inspection. Trying to work on it Today, but presently 25 degree F, lots of layers to be able to work outside.

You need to drop down to the IH-Farmall forum. When some one here mentions a 504 we are talking about the 504cu.in. engine used in big Case tractors not a little red tractor.

I have responded to Case 504 engine questions but never recall ever mentioning a 504 IH, Rod.
