IH 560 gas

Postby SONNY » Wed May 31, 2023 11:18 am

Got started on the 560. Head off, motor unstuck, pistons out and ready to attack the head and do a valve grind on it. I might get by with rings and rod bearings in it for now. Not sure about the front crank seal, looks complicated to replace with motor in tractor and I cant take motor out right now.
Radiator was totally plugged up with dirt and they probably ran the poor old tractor hot and took out the rings and rod bearings. crank is .010 and looks great, so new bearings should do there. Pistons look to be standard bore since there are no markings on them other than part #. ( 530949-R1 which I assume is standard bore).

got some of the head done,---slow process since life got in the way this year since I started on it, but still pluggin away. Did come up with a different starter and other odds and ends for it. 3-point hitch comes off my other 560 and goes on this one. I took the fast hitch off,--- ( I despise them!)
