So wish you folks could have heard it rolling up that steep hill and turning the muffler purple!  It was great!!!!!  Lots of work to do yet on the H but what a great time with Chapter 11 that day.  Lo

Chapter 11 plow day.  First time the H has been in the field working since 1965.  

SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  After beating my head against the wall, for what seemed like forever, I finally figured it out.  I set the drive gear 90 degrees out, so now the slo

The dollars are a real drag but as you may have seen in the pictures, it just has to get done.  I've waited over 30 years now to start this project and whats a few more grand any ways.  LOL!  Honestly though, I didn't think the cost was all that bad compared to what you fellas must have to give for those 'big' tractor tires.  Really makes ya respect anyone who goes all the way and puts all new tires all the way around some of these big 4x4's .

did you put the distillate head on the engine yet with those domed pistons?

No the head is not on the motor as of yet, the weather has not been cooperating real well the last few weekends.  To the best of my knowledge there should not be any clearance issues as the distillate motor was mid size chamber being slightly larger than the gas but not as large as the kerosene.  Now, having said that, this is my first IH engine build so I could be full of beans too so take it with a grain of salt until I can report back with some firm data and run time.  So stay tuned.  :lol:  Oh, and if any one reading this has that firm data please feel free to share, I hate doing things twice.  :rolleyes:

Great project to follow. You may want to visit www.agmonkey.com. I've recently found this site for my own projects. They have a great selection of engine parts and good prices. I'll be keeping my eye on your progress moving forward.

looks like I am the only one that thinks this?? oh boy here goes ( it may take a couple posts get the pics on here) this is a distillate head 8776d. note the combustion chamber size and where the tape is at 2 1/4" it is close to 90 degrees and a sharp edge, FYI the combustion chamber is appr. 1 inch deep hence the shorter valve stems for distillate heads

this is a gas head. note the wider combustion chamber (2 3/4 ") and it tapers off.  FYI it is appr 1/2 "deep.

from my experience the distillate head will hit (some or all?) domed pistons on the edge where the tape read 2 1/4. I recommend you check the clearance before you torque down the head. maybe place the head gasket in place, set the head on ( without nut) and rotate engine to check clearance. it may be very apparent at this time but further checking may be a good idea

your pistons may clear fine but there are ones that don't! I have seen it myself

Just a word of advice if you have never done this before.  There is no need to remove the woodruff key after removing the drive gear so if it doesn't come out easy don't worry about it.

Ok, here we go.  A little bit of what went on this weekend.

 

Checking clearances here.  Started without the head gasket just to see were we're at.

Hillman, 

I did check what looked close with out the head gasket just to see what was up.  There was some close areas, of course, without the gasket but with adding the gasket of 85 thou I wouldn't think it would draw down past the mid 60's in my opinion.  However, Dad and I talked about it and decided to relieve the edge, just in case, after seeing what it looked like.  So at this point I don't have any concerns.

Thank You FarmallFan!!!

Here is the picture that describes the VW rims that my Grandparents added when they could upgrade to rubber.  There is a set of Firestone SilverTown 7.00X16's.  

The head is on and ready to torque down, the clearance is there and I believe its ready to go.  Worked on cleaning the rocker assembly and things should mate up well with the fresh ground lifters.  Can't wait to get the parts lubed and installed......

Oh, forgot to take a picture of the lifters drowning in assembly lube as well as the cavities of the lifters were the push rods are set it.  Also forgot to get a picture of the lifter retainer bracket put in.  

 

This picture here is of the spacer from the manifold.  For what ever reason the head studs are not the same size as the original.  Some where there was a change made.......
