  • Water in crankcase
  • I have a 1945 Ford 2N tractor. I started it up and didnít have any oil pressure. I drained the oil and there was about a cup of water in the oil. I have had the tractor for about 5 years and have never had this problem before. I use the tractor for show and occasionally pull a small trailer. I do not use it for farm work. I donít think it is condensation because of the amount of water and I have not had this problem before. Since I drained the oil there is water dripping out of the oil pan. It is a very slow drip. What could be causing the problem and where should I start to fix it?

  • You said water.
    Now if the radiator is filled with water, you might have a problem.
    If the radiator is full of green goo, then you have water in the engine.
    That water is then called condensation.

    Now the funny part is where the engine has water in it, probably so does the gear case.
    Best part on that one is the hyd relief valve is probably sitting in water and turning orange with rust where it doesn't work anymore.
    Ask me how I found that out.

  • Have you got steam coming out the exhaust? Or white smoke? May be internal break in the head gasket.
