Ford Jubilee 1953
So we have the motor back and mounted to the tractor. We had a very reputable machine shop replace the sleeves, new pistons, rings, and rebuild on the head. We bought the newer style governor and installed it last night. Crankshaft was also turned. So here are a couple of questions....
1. The crankshaft pulley appears to be what forms the front seal at the governor. While we had it apart, we painted the back of the pulley. Should we remove this paint so it is bare metal against the rubber seal?
2. In assembly of the water jacket, does the thermostat sit here or is it inserted in one of the hoses? I remember people talking about it, but do not remember the details for the Jubilee. Also, which way should the thermostat be turned? I know I do not want it to be turned backwards.
Thank you guys in advance for the help. We really appreciate it.
