Got a 282 with supposedly lower hours on rebuild from many years ago from previous owner so he says. But anyway, it's been runnin good and has never failed me since ownin it for about a year. I got around to cleanin some of the grease off the oil filter side one day late last fall and noticed just behind the oil filter where the head gasket is, it was bubblin air I think. I didn't notice fluids comin out. Like I said, the motor runs good but I'm guessin early signs of head gasket?? Haven't ran the tractor at all this winter for snow removal as THERE IS NONE! Mild here in Saskatchewan!
Always love the forums!

maybe you could check the head bolt torque and tighten the leak up?

115 ft/lbs is the torque spec for the head bolts.

From my experience with a 282 in a Farmall 560 that is where the headgasket starts leaking. I suspect you have a head gasket replacement coming up soon. They are not a hard one to change out.

Should I have the head gone through if I remove it even though it's runnin good? If so what would a cost figure be so I can compare.

Last head I did ran around 550 US. It was pretty tired, but ought to be good for another few decades now. Tanked, crack checked, surfaced, all new vales, seats, guides, springs. Since the head will be off, take it to a good machine shop to clean and crack check carefully. 282D heads are known for cracking, so invest just a little to get an opinion, before committing any work.

It depends totally on the condition of the head. I have cleaned up many heads and done no repairs except new valve seals if used. But, those engines are noted for head gasket problems so you will probably find some pitting and a need to resurface. Thing is, the worst thing you can do to a diesel engine is to give it a valve job if it does not need it. The seats may look pitted but they will again in a 100 hours. Heck, even on Nebraska tests, they pulled the head on one model IH and reported valve seat pitting and IH sent out letters quickly to inform (test readers) that this was normal. Guess what I am saying is it takes someone with an experienced eye to tell you if it needs repairs. Your call.
