M&O Machining only does crankshaft work now.

They recommended another shop. Clinton Machine and Ritchie Automotive Machine are two to check out.

May just go to Mark Smalls based on above commentary on nice equipment.


Sounds like you are prepared to spend more than you were when we talked :roll:

I guess so. Isn't that most projects?

I'd love for someone to show me the ropes but I haven't had any luck.

Part of the reason I wanted to take on this project was thinking the support.... Seeing a new generation helping preserve... Many just offer their advice like Bob there and keep walking.

Don't get me wrong, I'm doing it because I love a project. I can just see where once the older generation dies these tractors will be scrapped or a few set in a display case for a while until something else comes along.

You are always welcome to stop by here. I am not in the tractor repair business but I may be able help with things that require tools and machinery beyond the scope N of the typical family garage

I don't know how to take that other than you may be kicking a gift horse in the mouth...

Many newbys stop by with an attitude don't be one life will be good...

Everyone you meet knows something you don't know :wink:

And that is where the cost of a machine shop doing it reveals itself. I appreciate the offer but the engine needs rebuilt, perhaps decked,any measurements all requiring tools I do not have. If it was as simple as pushing in new sleeves, I'd gladly make the trip. I just think where the motor is now and where I want to be, it is best to leave it to a fully staffed and complimented shop.

Again, I think most projects start out small... And grow. My last one sure did. Grew by an extra liter of displacement and more!

If you are still looking for machine shops, you may want to contact Burtonsville Machine. It has been a while, but I worked there through college and when I first started teaching to help ends meet. I rebuilt my 8N motor there. Now, that has been at least 25 years ago and I think the shop has moved to mostly performance work. At the time I was there, it was probably half and half meaning general rebuilds and performance. Now it is more performance. Anyway, Bub Whitaker owns the shop and couldn't be a nicer guy. If he can't take it on, he will at least be decent about it and may have a recommendation on who would be able to work on it.

Electrolysis and rehab with a wire wheel, 80 grit flap disc and some phosphoric acid.

Going to try some cleaning and the Rust-Oleum red oxide primer for implements.

Back to work this week. Hope to determine the machine shop and get it in.

Thanks for your support, Hobo!

I offered him a little sage advice and got kicked for it.

What a JERK!

You represent this forum poorly. I am disheartened for your rude words and unbecoming behavior.

Trying differ

Trying paint primers to see what grabs best. Little goals. Redoing the dash.

I am a big fan of DTM epoxy primers.
