I'm just doing the engine, but I believe the rest of the tractor is getting a full restoration. I'd never heard of a BMB President until now but must agree, they look a nice little machine.

Phill.

Thanks again, most helpful!

I will be needing some spare having had a good look over it tonight. It's pretty much stripped down and has had a previous overhaul, the crank journals are all ground to different sizes and the bores +.030.

Bit of a battle getting the head studs out but all undamaged.

Someone else has already put me on to Ian Harris, but thanks for the heads up.

Cheers,

Phill.

Cylinder head torque setting with new or good studs is recommended to be 45 Ft lb maximum cold. do it in 5 ft lb steps from about 20 to get it even and then re torque when hot. The sequence should be cast on the head top.

Head gaskets come in various qualities. Avoid some that are about that dont have the top & bottom copper layers rolled ove on the water holes. They tend to fail. Try and get payen copper asbestos (SHHH !) ones as they seem to last. If you need to know any thing else let me know.
