If I'm not mistaken, Dick, you have to do it that way because the bottom end of the rods is larger than the bore.

You are correct! The rod will not go thru the cylinder bore because of the pistons small diameter. The point of the post was that the rings can be put back in from the bottom but much easier to remove the head and install the rings on top. If the only cause of the low compression was over heating because of low water you can replace the rings from the bottom.

I am not a AC guy but I am familiar with the AC "G" tractors. That one is kind of rare with it being set out for two row with the extra front end spacers. Then the two row planter is rare too. IF that was any where close to the Mid west it would have been sold in under a day at that price. So maybe in your area it is not worth much but I will say if you do not take it let us know. I just might drive out there and try to buy it.

I to am like JD SELLER that tractor is rare. The planter set up and being spread to two rows makes it priced right for me. Wish it was closer to Tennessee. I want to find one and repower it with a KUBOTA diesel engine.

Hanover County VA just North of Richmond used to be a big vegetable growing area there were multiple G tractors on about every farm, some set up really wide to plant and cultivate
things like salad greens.One fellow I knew had about 20 G's.Can't tell from the picture but the really wide ones had an extension about 6" long on the end of the original axles.Still run across a lot of them here.

O K TF you have a task, find me one with blown up or non running engine, hydraulics would be nice but not a deal killer. Price according to tires, send me an e mail when you get it. Been wanting to come West Virginia or where ever and meet you so here is my chance.

Finally found the serial number of this newly purchased Model G. I guess it's a 1948. Am I correct?

I'll look around I'm in Central VA BTW.There was a guy in Luray VA that had a group of G tractors a long with more AC stuff he sold at auction a few years back he had a couple neat ones and they went pretty cheap $1500-$2500 redone and running.Original hydraulics are pretty rare on a G.

Yea I have seen a few with hydraulics but that would not be a deal killer, Since I am going with Kubota motor would have the pump and think I could rig the valve and cylinder. Just keep your eyes out, might want to come up that way if you find a bargain.

A good conversion would be a lift system like is on my Hines H-1600 Cat 0 3pt on both center and rear lifts with a separate control for both.A Hines would be very easy to make a diesel conversion as
its a hydrastat drive.

Congratulations, I envy you. Don't think I'll ever find one, there were few in my area. For some reason, I do have a G plow, can't even remember where I got it.

Does that plow mount on the back somehow? Mine has the manual lift arm and bracket to attach the cultivator frame. Wonder if the plow attaches to that.

This is sure a sweet running machine once I got the carb and the gas tank cleaned out. Transmission and clutch work. The brake linkage and maybe the linings are really sluggish so I guess I take that apart.

Overall a good deal at 1500 with the cultivator stuff and the seeder pots

I've never seen it mounted but I assumed it's belly mount. I'll take some photos when the sun is back out tomorrow and maybe someone can identify how and even if. I would imagine I took the word of the fellow I got it from because I would not have known. I never followed Gs much even though I'd like to have one.

Yes, then you did get a good price. Those rear tires look pretty good. I sure would have paid that or more if local here. It looks like they would be much easier to work on than any other AC.

I had an N62 on an MH Pony we used for cultivating and grinding (pig feed), the engine was tired and it was still a trooper.
