anti-freeze in oil filter

Mike My neighbor has offered to gve me his Allis that had some antifreeze in the oil filter.
Is the location of this anti-freeze a common problem or are we talking cracked block, head gasket, cylinder wall hole, etc?

Thanks for your input.

Mike, it is probably a head gasket. It could be the other things that you mentioned. The head gasket would be the least expensive to repair. When you take the head off, look very closely. More than likely if the head gasket is blown, you will be able to see where the leak was. There will usually be some discoloration to mark the spot. After you get the head off, you may want to take it to a good head shop to be checked and maybe a valve job while you are at it. Good luck. Steve Carmack

This tractor will not be used a great deal. A little brush hogging, gardening, etc. Will liquid glass get me by. I hate to do the head because I know that just takes the rings out. If the head has to be done, what would it cost for parts to do the rings, etc?

Never owned a tractor, know nothing about them. Have overhauled small engines. This one is small enough I think I can handle it.

Thanks
Mike

Mike, if you need a head gasket, that should not have any affect on your rings. I have done valve jobs and not cause problems with the rings. If you rings are already causing your engine to burn oil, it might make it worse. You can try some kind of stop leak. I have used Barr's Leak with some sucess. I have a tractor that is running now with a cracked block that I used Barr's Leak and Preston Heavy Duty Stop Leak mixed together. It stopped the leak in its track. I know that is a temporary fixit. I will get into the real work once I get finished spraying my beans. Some people highly rec. the liquid glass. I have never used it. Some people go with oat meal or black pepper. If it works, why not?

How do you know you have anti frez in the filter? You should run the tractor and if you have a head or head qasket you will have a white film or bubbles on the oil dip stick.
