RE: July copy of Tractor & Machinery

Hi Colin, I read that article too and it was good. I just received my Classic Tractor (August issue I think)in the mail yesterday and there is a super 1412 in it from the Northern part of Ireland.

990 Engine Overhaul

:D
Hi there All

How do you tell if your engine has been rebored, i.e. has oversize pistons, is there a mark on the paistons or do you have to measure? Also the same qustion on the crankshaft, if it was already reground would oversize shell bearings carry a particular mark, thanks

My tractor has the round ones but they are badly rusted and I would prefer to replace them with round ones if possible, otherwise I will put flat topped until I can source round ones! :-D

I will ...
