  • cracked block
  • Several months ago I bought a 1966 9N with the intention of restoration. The engine was stuck, water in one cylinder, blown head gasket, much water in oil and a four-inch crack which ran parallel to the side of the block. In addition, I noted a patch of Bondo, or such, on the side of the block adjacent to the crack. I have another engine so it matters not if this motor is repairable, but my question is: Is it? This question is posed for information purposes only as it will most likely go to the scrap yard anyway. Whadayathink?

  • Metal stitching is an option:

  • I think that unless it's for a super rare or exotic machine cracked blocks are junk. Use only if you have no reasonable option.

  • I've seen several blocks with welded cracks that seemed to be working fine.

  • Engine block sounds in bad shape, sounds like you've made up your mind to scrap it out so -I'd get another. Get out your essential manuals and have at it.

  • I think you don't know what tracto you bought. A 1966 machine would not be a 9n.

  • Yeah, I blew the 66 part it shud have read 1946. I have a pretty good idea of the tractor I bought but am only interested in the info on the repair whether it be a 66 or whatever.

  • Still got it wrong, a 46 would be a 2n. I am running a8n with a welded up block, been working fine for 7 years.

  • IF the damage is only on the outer water jacket, they can sometimes be saved by welding.
