    Can I turn over a Kubota diesel engine by hand?

    Years ago, late 60's, while working at an IH dealership, we had a cotton picker with a locked up engine. Could not turn it over at all. Started pulling it apart and found the remains of a bird in an exhaust port. The best we could tell, the aluminium piston swelled due to chemical reactions...

    If you can not rotate the engine 360 degrees, you will need to remove the cylinder head to see what is on top of a piston. Possibly a broken valve.

    What happened to the Allis Chalmers plant and a look back in time

    I worked at the AGCO R & D facility west of Phoenix in the early 90's. They were also using C series Cummins engines in the White tractors. AGCO took on quite a line of different brands of tractors. Need to add Gleaner into the mix also, AGCO is the acronym for ALLIS GLEANER COrp.

    I've seen this setup quite a bit, but not too much late lately. One variation that I've seen is instead of the dump on 3rd truck, there would be a small car or pickup (Ranger) fully mounted on the 3rd truck. That way, the driver had a way to get back to his starting point. -
