antifreeze in the oil pan

Carl Hi,
I have a 656 gas. I had a problem earlier starting the tractor so I installed new plugs.

The tractor started right up and after a very short run the oil breather tube blew oil and a watery sludge all over. I stopped the tractor and decided to drain the oil and replace the oil. When I removed the drain plug antifreeze came pouring out, about 1 gal or better, and then the oil.

Is this possibly a cracked block or maybe just a head gasket issue?

It did have some white smoke at the start up but cleared after about 5 minutes.


Leon Since that is a dry sleeve engine, it's most likely to be a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head. Still could be a cracked block but that is uncommon on those engines.

White smoke is most likely from the engine being overfilled because of the added antifreeze.
