  • Where is the crack?
    Does it leak oil or coolant?
    What do you use the tractor for?
    What state are you in?

  • Re: broken block
  • A crack from cylinder bore to valve is not good as valve will no longer seal well.
    Since you were rebuilding anyway, I would just get another block and move on.
    You can usually find one pretty cheap, but shipping is a bear. Good luck.

  • If you work it, and can afford it, buy a real tractor.
