    Guess I didn't expect it getting past the rings so bad with only around 90 psi. Thinking I could see it happening in a diesel that has much more compression. Would be great to see info from your 10-20 manual. Sorry, not much help in upload issues. Please forgive me for asking questions on your post Superman. Found once I read distillate info, which is hard to find, I just invited myself. Take Care Tim

    Very good, have never seen, smelled, used distillate fuel. Diesel slobber gives me the first description of what it was like. Do you know if it was designed practice to have it run past the piston rings into the crankcase, then drain fuel from crankcase at end of day? Good thing we're not airplane pilots, there would no longer be a place to sit. My above post changed crankcase drains to, pet ****. Guess these days the pilot sits and controls the plane from the ****pit. If we meet face to face do we need to talk the same way?

    Have been told by a local friend they had a Farmall H distillate that was the same way. Oil level checked by opening bottom pet ****, at end of work day open top one to drain off distillate fuel. Seems like a lot of oil contamination to me. Have never seen anything in IH manuals about this being normal or draining fuel from oil at end of the day. My manuals just states, fill with oil till runs out of bottom pet **** if burning distillate. Fill oil to top pet **** if burning gas. Had thought draining distillate from oil must be a sign of worn rings. If I'm wrong, let me know. I have a 1940 distillate H. When I dropped the oil pan, way too much sludge buildup in engine to have been circulating any kerosene like fuel through it.
  5. If you have confidence in the new parts you installed, I'd say give it a try.
  6. Had the same issue with mine. Instead if just pinching together, also put a bit of a twist on just one of the tabs till pin was secured in place. Pin has stayed put since. Twisted the one tab after pin was re installed.
  7. Well Doc... here's my issue. It's a distillate model running on gas. When I first asked questions about the engine, the whole tractor became nothing but a joke so I make some final comments to end that discussion and thankfully the topic died. Thanks for your info, any ballpark guess on what HP at the drawbar is made with a distillate engine and head, tuned and running on gas? Compression has improved the more I run it. Last Hot compression tests indicated 100, 100,100,96. Can't find that Nebraska ever tested that combination. Though I did notice that either an M or Super-M distillate did out preform a standard gas model of the same model in one of the many pulling tests they preformed.
  8. I agree. By all means take them out and throw them away. Pistons without rings work better also. Just more un needed parts. Guessing oil would be on that list also. Sorry, but someone with a sense of humor is having their way with you, or us.
  9. What I read was not correct then. Thanks for the correction.
  10. Yep, great example. Tells me starter works, and engine turns over,plus good battery. After that ???
  11. Yeah, agree with you. Never expected to find 67 year old factory leak down numbers. But a lot of sharp people work on old ag equipment and tractors, thought I could tap into that type of experience. Worked in the electronics, electricity, fields for 36 years. Told the techs I taught to go from an ok tech, to an outstanding tech, you have to make the invisible, visible. To do that use good test equipment and know how to use it. Know the difference between a good reading and a band reading, and what to do about it. So I'm a test equipment hound, helps me to know what I have instead of what I hope I have. Have known mechanics that do almost everything by feel, sound, or smell. No meters, torque wrenches, or feeler gauges. I don't have that touch. When I've tried then checked with recommended equipment, I'm always way off.
  12. I'm happy with it then. Thank you.
  13. Just noticed your location. I'm in the upstate, between Greenville and Anderson. Good Luck.
  14. Don't know if a problem I found on my Super M that was causing a bit of smoking is a part of your issue but I'll tell my short story just in case. Noticed a bit of oil smoke out of exhaust before I bought it. Wasn't a show stopper, just a little check mark to figure out later. All hoses looked original including hose that carries fresh air to the carburetor from the air cleaner. When I removed this hose to replace it, was surprised to find horrible looking, black, brown oil in air intake throat of carburetor and inside of decrepit hose. Maybe 1/8 teaspoon of oil all together. Not much but shouldn't be there. Problem was a pretty much plugged air cleaning system. Oil bowl had about an 1 - 1/2" of very solid dirt in it, followed by a plugged foil mesh. After soaking foil mesh in gas over night and cleaning, patching oil bowl, all I got at the carb intake was fresh air, exhaust cleaned up totally. Seems air system was so plugged it was able to pull what little oil was in the filter system right into the carb. And that filthy stuff was being burned by the engine. Might not have any thing to do with yours, just thought I'd pass along info.
