    1953 Farmall Super M Engine Rebuild

    Well I didn't know what the most appropriate forum section for this was so I figured I'm working on it at home and in my workshop so this one fit!! If the moderator feel it fits a different forum section better feel free to move it.
    Anyhow my Brother In-Law is a dairy farmer and he recently dropped a cylinder sleeve in the No 2 cylinder of his 1953 Farmall Super M. So we are going to tackle this rebuild project. I thought would post a few pics for the picture lovers around here.

    I bought a used cherry picker and engine stand a couple of weekends ago from guy in oregon. That's how we got the cylinder head off and the engine out of the tractor!! Now I have to go around and try to get things organized because the "kids" that I'm helping to do the project like to just start taking nuts and bolts off and not labeling and organizing them. Plus I'm doing the dirty work of cleaning things up while nobody else is around creating more messes.
    Feel free to come up and check it out if you want Randy.

    I'm doing the best I can to keep it clean. My brother in-law on the other hand is doing his best to make a mess!!

    I do have a question for the experienced engine builders though. Any Idea how much the engine by itself weighs? I have an engine stand rated for 1000 lbs but I'm not sure if that is pushing it or not?

    Thanks.

    Looks pretty good for a "red" tractor. According to tractordata.com, the weight of the tractor is 5603 pounds. It isn't likely that the engine would make up 20% of the total weight. There is a lot of steel and cast iron in from the clutch rearward.

    What kind of car is under the cover? Nice, clean shop also.

    I'm thinking the same thing in terms of % weight that the engine makes up for the tractor. But I thought I would ask a few of the more veteran tractor mechanics around here and see what their thoughts are.

    Thanks for the compliment on the shop. Under the car cover is my college graduation present to myself that I bought new in 2002. I've attached a few pics for better viewing pleasure.

    Thanks.

    Looks like a relatively fun project on a well kept piece of old iron. That shop looks more like some aircraft hangars I've been in than a shop.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Nick:

    Nice Camaro. I would keep it covered also. What engine and transmission does it have?

    My college graduation present to myself was a new 1965 Impala Super Sport. Unfortunately, I do not still have it.
