I can look but it might be tonight, maybe somebody will answer before then. I go by the red diamond truck engine torque specs.

Anyone know a source for a head gasket?

Olson Gaskets just sent me a whole gasket set. Wasn't advertised on their site but they had it.

Here is one we picked up some years ago, put wheels on it and stuck it in the shed. Have since found a good gas tank and manifold, had to load it like this after the sale. Has a red diamond engine in it with distributor but has the mag mount.
I just remembered I needed to ask about starters, I recall a Minneapolis Moline and a John Deere starter will fit, any part numbers?

Russ...sometime I would like a closeup picture of how the throttle linkage got revamped as the stock tractor linkage will not work with a distributor installed.

Starters off of gas powered Oliver 77 and 88 tractors will work...also heard that the early McCormick W-9's that used the 3 bolt mounting flange will also work.

I see that yours has a Red Diamond oil filter base on it which is a nice upgrade as opposed to using the one off of the original FBB298 motor. I'm still on the search for one of these. Not all Red Diamond truck motors used the oil filter base with the filter can in the upright position. Red Diamond Power Units used the correct base but those are even harder to locate.

My W40 project is hung up on the radiator end. The radiator out of cracked block tractor leaked like a lawn sprinkler. The one out of the burnt tractor didn't leak but from what I could see of the cores almost all were plugged with rust. Still have one more to try but it's on a tractor carcass yet.
