Default Hart Parr 40 Resurrection

After this machine had slept for 50 years this is how I was greeted when removed the crankcase covers. Why do Mice like Hart Parr tractors so much?

Mice are disgusting little creatures. Definitely use of rubber gloves and respirator is a necessity. I determined that they're point of entry was the breather elbow located next to the governor. I have it blocked now. When its back together I intend to install a cap with numerous smaller hole drilled in it to prevent further infestation.

Well, I finally was able to get the engine turn after a year long good soaking of the cylinders with a lot of PB Blaster. No matter how many times I've freed stuck engines it's still a great feeling!!! Now It's time strip down the engine and get this old Girl on the road to recovery!

Made some more progress. Unfortunately the engine did take on some water. Fortunately not too bad. The mag is out for rebuild. I've got the cylinder heads apart. I'll be needing some new valves and some machining. I expected that though, it is almost 90 years old.

I don't know if the 22-40 and 12-24 share the same valves and guides but I AM sure you won't go wrong with H & J Machining if they can help you.......

Yes, Thanks Craig according to my Original H.P. Parts Price list it shows p/n 11772 (OE Part #) Was used on tractor # 70001 (22-40) & up through the H.P. 28-50. Actually I searched the forum & revisited the thread when You Guys did the H.P. 18-36. Thanks again for the info. I will keep this thread updated as time and progress allows.

I sent you an e-mail but I did a 12-24 head and used Mack truck valves. They were almost a drop in fit.
