Make sure you put enough clearance in the bores or you will be doing this again. If you use the automotive formula, you will lock the engine up again. Check the oil cooling pump for proper circulation, air can get drawn in around the oil pump shaft and cause cavation which leads to overheating. Gasoline will not cause this issue, old tale. The higher the octane cooler the combustion. Use 2 cycle oil for upper end lube, it actually works great for this.

we decided to go with .011 clearance. the side that got tight had .007 clearance at the bottom of the bore, the other side had .008. this tractor, although being under a restoration, will be used for plowing, threshing, etc. not so many hours per year but she needs to work well when called upon. there may be many opinions on what one thinks clearance should be, but this is what we are doing.

Whether or not it makes any difference we went with .008" for a 16-30.
Those things run hot so piston expansion is more of an issue.

Stort of on a spur of the moment, decided to try and blast prime and paint main chassis. Maybe fronts soon too, but the rears will need the bulls taken off for some rivet work for both loose and missing rivets... and then... blast prime and paint rears. Any one have lugs around for a 2040? Be happy to get this done b4 winter and then I can assemble motor over the winter.i think it got 20 hours into steam washer on the frame and tinwork.

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.
