you know i have never heard a complaint out of the older Deere engines (1960's, 70's, 80's)...but lately all the farmers here are really raising a fuss about the new stuff Deere has out....i guess this is just another example

then again they won't switch to New Holland because they are worse and have too much "pride" to run anything Red

The bearing looks good.
I will assume something in the area of the piston caused the failure.

A little bit of damage :laugh:

It looks like one cylinder overheated ?

Any way you slice it its going to cost money for a replacement engine.

Like they say nothing "Runs Like A Deere" :laugh:

that is definanlty not the norm for a John Deere engine.

One thing is for sure, you sell enough equipemnt there are gonna be some catostrophic failures, for all brands.

Down in the USA they had 150 Combines with engines that that happened and over 200 harvester's in the last year, not to mention tractors..............

The last couple of years they have had a bunch of bad cranks causing this problem. They sourced it out to a place in mexico to build them, and this was the result. They recalled a bunch of the 60 series combines and 8030 series tractors because if this. I would not like paying almost 300 thousand for a new combine and then having the motor tore down for a new crank.

I still don't see what the problem is? I think you probably need to clean it, all that black stuff sure hides that nice paint job.

That engine is beyond cleaning, it is done for! (don't you see that hole in side of block?)

Yeah, maybe if they put that paint on a little heavier it would have kept the engine in one piece....

Maybe if they paint the crank green it would look better, if the hole is going to be a standard option on JD's
