I have a really nice 2 ton cat, with original pressed pads, crossbar steering, air cleaner in tact, etc
it sat for 3 years inside my barn and now the engine is stuck
I pulled the pan, put some pressure on the crank with a bottle jack and still nothing. looking up inside #2 cylinder, I can see soem rust on the cylinder walls. I filled the cylinders with diesel fuel and will try to soak it out.
One of my questions is, if I have to pull the head, where can I get a head gasket set? How about piston rings, assuming they are standard.
thanks for any help
by the way, what is the approximate value of the machine today, I paid $3500 for it 3 years ago. ( with engine running)
