Well I finally got started working on the ole 49 D today. As I posted sometime earlier the sleeves had rusted out and I didn't want to go thru the expense of putting in new sleeves and pistons. I found a complete engine in Gillete AR and after waiting close to two years to get the motor time has come.

The day started out good, nice sunny, 70 degrees, and just a slight breeze. A good day to start this project on.

So after looking the situation over it looked like the easiest way was to pull the front end off, well what looked simple wasn't that easy. There was old hard grease and oil that must have been there from day one. Since I have had the radiator out before it was easy to pull this time.

Now that the radiator was out of the way all I had to do was unbolt the front end(sure wished I has a extra floor jack), but I got by with what I had. Boy it sure was being stubborn.

Ok now that the first part seemed to work I will continue. There were 3 bolts that hold the front end wish bone to the oil pan. I'm not sure but I thouught they were suppose to be bolts but two of them were studs. I used my wedge blocks to raise the engine higher so I could clear the studs to remove the front end.

Now that the front end is off I wanted to remove the crank shaft pulley as the one on the other engine is bigger and causes the pully to hit the front end when installed.

Hmmmmmm, I don't think this thing has been off since 1949, I wounder if the other one is just as hard to get off????

Well I decided to let them soak and will try again tomorrow after work. I picked up the tools and will see if they come apart tomorrow after soaking it with kroil.

Well hopefully this will turn out, hope you enjoyed the story and the picture.

Back to the ole D again tonight. I soaked the crank shaft pulley over night with good ole Kroil. Seems that stuff will free anything.

After putting the puller to it and a BFH the pulley started to move on the replacement engine. Once I got that one off I heated the other one with my little prophane torch, not sure if it really helped or not. but any way they both come loose.

and a look at the other one.

Picture Links

Hi Caseman,

I looked at the link to all the pictures you posted. Good pics and easy to follow. But when I looked at the picture links in your posts they were to a different address. Would this explain the problem?

Working http://f2.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/ca...d2002/my_photos

Not working img src =http://us.f2.yahoofs.com/users/3f6fb041_3d18/bc/2216/__sr_/e6ab.jpg?phiSRzABVXQJTHW_>

What I always do is set up the picture on the server then open IE to the picture and do a copy and paste from the Address line into the IMG SRC=............. command. Works for me!

Caseman, I left off the first bracket on the IMG SRC= commands because when I didn't, intsead of the command I got a red X on the preview like <img src =http://us.f2.yahoofs.com/users/3f6fb041_3d18/bc/2216/__sr_/e6ab.jpg?phiSRzABVXQJTHW_>

Good luck. This stuff is a bear when it doesn't work. Needs Actuators:furious:

well not a lot to report tonight. I was getting things ready so i can pull the motor, think I may have to find a bigger sheet of plywood fr my cherry picker. Sorry about the pictures not showing, kinda put a burr in the story:cry: :cry: :cry: . I don't know why but the pictures do show up for me. I might have to try that other sight Jody was talking about. Till tomorrow.

I just went to your photo page and took a look at them there. I'm using Mozilla Firefox most of the time. I just get the little box like the others. My Yahoo home page has been down today. I recieved an email from them that they were making some changes to their email system. Maybe they are having some problems yet on their end causing some browsers to be unable to render the image.

Anyway, looks like you were able to make some good progress. :)
