Did you try to charge it with a 6 volt charger? Chargers often put out more than the rated volts. Another thought is to use a resistor to cut the voltage from a 12 volt charger. Just get a voltage drop resistor and a DC volt meter to test it. You might have to play around with it a bit, but it will work. You can use a light bulb, wire wound resistor, etc., just anything that uses up the excess voltage. I'm not an electrical genius, but I know a certain number of ohms would be required to get what you want.

On the OC 6, the hood is poor and the side panels are missing.  Does any one know if they are the same as a 77??

That's a good point. I poured about 2 gallons of diesel fuel into engine and let sit for a couple days and drained and flushed again and a lot of sludge drained out. I need to mount radiator and add water so I can run engine longer and I will monitor oil pressure more closely. I may need to pull pan and take good look at lower end. Thanks for the tip coffeecreek.

  On one of my HG's I pulled the pan because of erratic pressure .The oil pickup is a screened in area at the bottom of the pan .   The screens were so clogged it wouldn't have enough oil in that area for the pump .  If it's been sitting for 40 years I think I'd pull the pan .

I see no reason to deal with an 8 volt battery. Hard to find, and I bet expensive. Plus everything you deal with is going to be a pain. Light bulbs, charging, accessories, etc. I would just switch it right over to 12 volts and be done. Batteries are cheap and you can put one of those little foreign alternators on like the one described on this site. Then you're done!

Hi Mark , Welcome to the forum . I had not heard of 8 volt batteries,so i googled it  and found they are used in golf carts etc .
I would not think the tractor had 8 volt originally .Maybe someone has put one in thinking it may boost the 6 volt starting .
I am sure one of the regulars will be able to confirm the correct battery for your machine .

Annealing copper is just the opposite of steel. Heat it and cool it quickly to soften.

If you have to fill it with water again and let it sit,  before you take the heads off keep track of which valves are open.  If say you had a cracked cylinder and water got in one cylinder, the water can go out an open valve into either the intake or exhaust manifold and travel to other cylinders with open valves.  If you fill several cylinders over night you have a big crack that should be easy to find.  When it was running did the exhaust look white like it was full of steam.  If it was run low on water and overheated, you could have cracked a head or could be the block in the cylinder or combustion chamber areas.

It sure sounds like (from the research I have done and input from others) that the head gaskets themselves wont be the issue. I will know more once I get the heads magnafluxed.  As far as which/how many cylinders had water in them, im not sure because the "mechanic" who removed and reinstalled the heads didn't pass on that info; just that there was water in cylinders.  I'm trying to get that info as well....before I take the heads back off and get magnafluxed. Otherwise I will have to let it set overnight again with water in the system and see for myself.  I will post an update of findings asap. Thanks again!

Found a Champion W14 that fits the threads and is about the same length.

Thanks for the replies.
