Well after 4 days of rain wont be moving the tractor for a few more days. It got the ground so soft I dont dare to hitch onto it and pull it to the shop. Will let you guys know when I get it to the shop.
It's been a bit wet here as well! Our early spring hasn't allowed us to get out in the fields yet without tearing everything up.

It will probably do like last year wet till the end of may then no rain to speak of till mid September. I'm eager to strip the 4000 down so I can pull the sump and then pressurize the cooling circuit to see where the water is coming from. I got a feeling that the machine shop missed a crack in the head. I don't think it is the block but if it is well so be it. it will make me go all the way. will have a pretty new tractor then. Pogobill if I remember correctly you commented on a 4000 that the water was entering the base via the oil passages to the bearings. I can't remember what that gent found wrong. I will try again this weekend to get the thing into the shop. well we will see if the 1 ton will back up to it then.

Hope you have luck and the least expensive fix. As far as the comment, I think that may have been a little too technical for me!:D I'd credit that to one of our regular contributors that know what they are talking about!! ;)
