I dig the tractor Fred. That's what I want mine to be like when it grows up!

I am partial to the T18. I love a granny gear. Ain't nothing like it. BUT, it will be a pita on the road w/o synchroed first gear. If you can deal with that, then get it. When the situation comes up, and you need that kind of low end, you'll be ready. My .02...

I think it'll come down to flipping a coin....heads, T-150; tails, T-18.

Started tearing the engine down this evening.

Here are some pics.

Anyone have any idea what the hell that thing is in the 3rd pic? You can see it in the 2nd pic too, towards the rear of the driver's side.

Secondary temp sensor?

Spark plug 6 and more. You can see some remnants of the Blue Poly paint on the damper, so that answers my question about whether it should have been painted Blue or Black.

Temp sensor I pulled from the front of the head is smaller than I thought it would be.

A very tired-looking timing chain...I'm amazed it stayed in time.

I'd say the cam looks toasted too.

Am I dreaming or is the cam gear nylon?????? Reminds me of a frigging Chrysler!

The fact that this engine stayed together is a testament to AMC.

Cyl's 1-3.

The impeller is kinda scary looking! But the rest of it looks like an old tired engine! I'm looking forward to the rebuild Fred. Please make lots of posts with pics at each step.

Yeah, the impeller is definitely done. I'd say that the engine is all original and has never been rebuilt...87,000 mile engine for sure that didn't get regular oil changes or other preventive maintenance.

I have to organize the garage and get my parts sorted tomorrow, but I'm hoping to get the rest of the engine torn apart. I'll take as many pics as possible.

It's a little ominous! I think you have given me pretty good insight as to what I can expect of my engine. I want to do my rebuild, and it will be my first. Your thread's going to be impotent!

yep thats a tired engine 3 wet cylinders.

that engine looks like 187,000. i doubt an 87K engine is that far gone unless it was very very abused.

you may want to consider a re maned engine ie crate engine long block.

unless you want to learn as you go, and remember the education will always cost you more. guaranteed

Rich,

It could be 187,000, but the cylinder walls look pretty good, if it is....I'll mike them to see how worn they are.

This engine ain't my first rodeo....rebuilt the 318 Wide Block on my '65 Satellite, when I was 18, then the 302 on my '70 Mustang, 350 on my '79 Vette, 396 on my '69 Chevelle and 402 on my '72 Suburban...you get the idea.

This one is cake, compared to those.

Fred
