Default Rumely 2040 G Restoration

I was not really planning on restoring my g this winter, but after scoring a piston, I decided to pull the motor off. After pulling the motor the decision was made that she should be cleaned up blasted and made pretty. Sleeve the jugs. Address radiator leaks and whatever else I find on the way. I am planning on this being a 2 year deal with other projects happening at the same time

Wow, what a beautiful sight! A shop full of tractors. And my favorites, Rumely and John Deere. Have fun on the G! Chris.

I concur. Nothing beats a shop full of old iron. I'm assuming you're talking about the painted 20-40? What's the deal with the unrestored 20-40 and 16-30?

Yes the older re painted one. The other 2 are in for mechanical restorations. The jd 830 is almost done. Cleaned bores and went through the whole governor system. Some fool played with the rack setting and took beyond where is should be, caused flyweights to go stuck balls out. The 730 is getting close. ... Rebuilt pumps and injectors, that one is factory elec start. Also put one good fender on. Must have blown a tire with chloride and was pretty nasty.

The first tractor through was the 8210. Got a loader put on it after I traded my other one off. Came in handy too. My forklift was proving too light for the task of lifting off the motor. So we used the 8210 with 3 chain hoists. Better control with the chain hoists. It's a lot of up and down, climbing and looking around to pull level... but went good. Just takes time

Looks like you could squeeze an "H" JD in there, yet, or, maybe an antique garden tractor.

Luke, those oilpulls should run cooler on gas than kerosene. I think there is an other issue there if it is actually over heating. Frequently the hub in the cooling pump impeller is worn loose on the shaft, most of them are just cast of aluminum and soon Quit driving when they come loose and of course you loose circulation. An other issue that crops up is often the pipes to the radiator are cut too short and over the years a lot of packing gets forced into the fittings and radiator spacing rings till it plugs them off. Of course pistons fit with out enough clearance will score. Just some more home work for you

Should reword this to read, "Those Oilpulls can still operate on gasoline when the engine happens to be cooler. Operating on kerosene will not cause the engine to operate hotter." If some of the kerosene didn't burn, it could provide some slight lubrication.

I stand by the original wording of my post.

Darn I missed the plowing on the g. But glad I wasn't plowing when piston scored.it looked like the ground was a little wet to plow. Looks like a busy winter for you
Dan. Ps really nice meeting you and your family at rollag.

Looking at those gears I would say that tractor is just not used to hard work.

The bounties of a long very hot day. Found the stamp in the frame and matched my serial tag.
