      Overhaul my butt. front and rear main seals are critical to the successful and lasting overhaul. And before you get froggy in the comments, 48 years as a mechanic including as a Cat dealership mechanic.

      workaholic53 He or they overhauled what needed doing.
      Why replace parts that are not broken.
      He replaces piston rings. & probably cleaned manifolds etc.

      The title doesn’t even say “complete overhaul”

      @Elias Medvecky I believe the HPCR connections are a knife edge seal style so they are 1 time use or maybe limited to 1 or 2 re tightenings

      Very cool video. Thanks for taking the time in making it.

      I split and 1120 (no where near as a comparaison I know, but my point is) its nice to see that removing the engine block is possible without having to split the tractor.

      I don't know if anyone is still reading these comments... That tractor appears relatively new. Is this common that an engine would need a complete overhaul that soon? Or is this not that common of an occurrence but could happen? What is a ballpark figure of the cost rebuilding this type engine from John Deere?

      @Elias Medvecky Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. It is much appreciated. At least John Deere recognized the defect and covered it. I love the sound of that diesel. Although... The K700 V-12 diesel engine just sounds savage.

      It used to be a common occurrence on the early models of this engine due to a manufacturing defect with the piston rings, it was a product improvement that was covered by Deere at no cost to the customer. Typical ball park figure for an overhaul (without a catastrophic failure) is in the neighborhood of $10-15k

      Pretty weird that it still uses a pushrod camshaft instead of a overhead camshaft

      I spent many happy days stripping and rebuilding Rolls Royce diesel engines. Never did find anything wrong, all research work. Some of them were so old the parts list was in Latin. The CV12 sounded lovely at 1200BHP but I only did a bit on one engine. Never did see it run at 1500BHP. Gardner engines were also very well made but gone the way of the old Detroit two strokes - lovely sound. As for the Chieftain L60, not a bad engine but it was made by British Leyland - kiss of death, bloody butchers the way they were assembled. That engine did look a bit new for such a major overhaul, no doubt quite a few hours under it's belt. Reading the comments below why is it you always get some r - sole. Great video, brought back some fond memories.

      Where's the procedure of installing the EI and the valve clearance adjustments. And why you didn't show the real first start after rebuilding? And how you make decisions to replace the piston liners?))

      @Elias Medvecky are sure? Are sure that this is a JD defect? How many motohours motohours has this machine before you did the rebuilding? I could be wrong but this defect can be results of the fuel system defect, or the diesel was not so .... because the reason of 90 percent of the defects is operator mistake or.... not a JD

      Piston rings were broken on #5 which is a John Deere defect so Deere pays to put all new pistons and liners in machine, only recorded certain parts because my service manager wouldnt be happy if I was always messing with my phone and recording things, I get paid to wrench not make videos

      This isn’t a complete engine overhaul this is just a piston and sleeve refresh i’ve worked on these engines before to do a complete engine overhaul the engine would have to be stripped down to the bare block then the block would be put into a steam machine to thoroughly clean it through along with all the parts except pistons and sleeves that’s because they put new sleeves new pistons new connecting rods and new connecting pins The crank would have to go to the machine to be miked The head would have to be stripped valves would have to be removed and replaced with fresh ones after the deck was steamed and then decked send a block would have to be decked and then thoroughly clean both of them then the assembly process would start.
