Sad but ture, the 830 I just bought was pressurizing the rad. So we pulled the heads and found that sometime a head bolt had been over tightened and cracked the block. Then it was patched up, and put back together. So I guess we are going to send the block out and see if it can be re-decked, and planed down. If not new block time.Any other ideas? Bruce

Awww, Man! Hope you can get her back up and going. Are there parts available for these old engines. Can you find an old (good) block?

I feel your pain. So far the engine sounds good on mine. That's about all, tho. Lol...slim

Just a thought, Bruce, but you might want to cut your losses!! That was a pretty tough looking 830 to begin with that is going to take a lot of TLC and $$$ to bring back to life. There are still lots of decent 830s kickin' around so why not use that one for a donor and part it out?? Repairing a block will not be cheap and that is just the beginning.

Had the same problem with my 400 diesel, block cracked and one stud pulled right our. $800 for the front half of another 400 complete with power steering and a wide front axle. Yes, I probably had about $5000 in the restoration but with new 15.5-38 23° tires and new 7.50-16 4 ribs up front it's a hell of a planter and hay maker!

I have to say I would rebuild that one and use another for donar as it is the std model with 3pt which are hard to find, a replacement block should not be that hard to find if his block repair get to pricey just my thoughts

Bradley ,that is a valid option but, If I rebuild this one, then I know what has gone in, and what to expect in the future.One other thing, It looks a lot wrose now, all torn down. Bruce

Just my 2 cents i would try and find a good used block.

Like a dumb bunny i let a good used 830 Diesel block get away from me with a good injection pump about a year ago. The guy that owned it sold it for scrap.

I took the wide front and 3PT arms and few other pieces for parts but never thought about the rest of the tractor since I dont own an 830.

Stupidity some times is a hard teacher. Next time I fined an old tractor like that I'm brining the thing home. I'm sure some one can use the parts
