A Nephew of mine needs a engine block for a MF 165 diesel. Tractor was down since April waiting for a
crankshaft. When his mechanic finally pulled the sleeves, they found a crack between two cylinders. He
says that there is two different blocks for that engine and the crankshaft will only work with the block
that has the rope crankshaft seals. They did find another block, but it was cracked also. Anybody know of
who may have a good block?

Bore the block and install repair sleeves, then bore those sleeves for the dry sleeves to fit. I had to do that on a 6.354 years ago on my neighbor's White 2-85 when it cracked through the sleeves on cylinders five and six.

Curious why a crack between cylinders would preclude further use? The gasket seals on the top of the sleeves, right? Some engines have a gap at the top between sleeves. If the cracks dont leak water or oil or compression it seems like maybe the cracks dont really affect it.
Were there any symptoms before you disassembled it?
