Default Case 18-32 K Project

Some years ago there was a late 18-32 on a farm auction near here, i remember it had L Case looking wheels on it so it had to be late 1928 i assume. I was the runner up bidder, always thought i might end up with one someday. A friend called a little over a week ago and wanted to sell me this one, terms and conditions were very reasonable. Picked it up last friday on the long weekend.
This one will actually have to wait its turn until after a few other projects, but everyone except my wife thought it would be good to get it in the schedule.
This one spent its working life in Wyoming, then went to South Dakota, finally here to Kansas.

Even though it will be on the backburner, i had to check out for any damage or parts needed. I already knew that the manifold was welded and ready by a previous owner, and the head was done. For some reason a piston was broken on top, possibly from trying to loosten up the engine. It looks to me like they had it loose at one time and now its stuck again, the broken piston being at the bottom of its stroke. Strangely, the oil pan looks like it hadn't been removed since it was in use. Seems like they were trying to loosten up the engine all at once instead of one piston at a time. AND, it looks to me like the #3 piston should have been the worst stuck, #4 piston being the one beat and broken.

I removed the oil pan saturday, and was lowering it down with my sons' help. As it came down he said; "wonder what that is in there?" Found a governor weight piece that had been laying in there awhile, and after further investigation found another piece up higher in the block. Pulled the governor cover off and found that someone had replaced the governor weight without looking for the pieces. While the cover was off i ran a magnet in the cavity looking for more pieces. Found 2/3rds of a TOOTH.
With all good hope i pulled the timing cover to see if they had also changed a gear when the governor went south. No such luck, the tooth matches up perfectly on the cam gear.
So far, aside from the cam gear it looks like the bearing for the governor/ accesory drive shaft needs replaced and the governor needs buhings badly.

Russ,
Great looking tractor. Congratulations on getting it.
Unforeseen problems, eh? That's what makes it such good fun. Look at it this way, you will probably make some new friends in your search for parts!
Good luck with it.

Yes, actually my friend who sold the tractor has quite a few parts available anyway. We knew it would probably need some things, didn't know how much was neglect, these tractors saw less maintainece towards the end of thier use in many cases.
The pan is very easy to remove, why they didn't go that route first to remove broken parts, second to pull pistons, i'm not sure.

Anybody know what to use on the 18-32 for sleeve o-rings? Got the pistons out last weekend, may have to pull some sleeves to clean out the furnishings from the last tennants. Looks like they were carpeting.

I could use some explanation on this toolbox, I was looking it over last night and it doesn't seem like there were any holes in the fender or platform that would line up. Is this the right toolbox for an 18-32?
Also wondered if the two holes in the platform wood mean anything.

Back at it again, thanks to a very good friend I have more parts than progress, hope to change that some this winter. I could tell the belt pulley drive gear was pretty worn through the oil filler hole, finally got the pulley off and the gear cover. We may just have a better set of gears now, time will tell as there is a parts tractor now for disassembly. Also have a better wheel available for the right side. Man, did it get cold just as time freed up.
Some radiator repairs found, two more tubes to seal up.
