WATER IN OIL ? TWO ?

Went to change oil (a cold drain) in by 1466 last month and out came 3/4 of a gallon of water before the  oil!!  Went ahead and changed the oil- filters and did about an hour of field work.  I let the tractor set for about 10 days and drained another quart of water out of the drain plug.  A real problem here, any guesses as to where the problem is?  

 

Thinking of replacing the IH 1466 with a Case 2590 any one have any experiance with that Case?   

Oh, yes, that 1466 did have a straight pipe, so if you do respond make sure I can hear you. Smiley Indifferent

Have you been changing the water filter and keeping clean antifreeze in it? Hopefully so or it could be sleeve cavitation where impurities cause piting and water seeps in.  It could be a seep in the head gasket, it`d be worth a try to buy a couple bottles of some sort of "stop leak" put in double what they recommend...and cross your fingers.  Good Luck.

A little history on the O'l gal,  in the Spring of  2000 the same thing happened with about 3500 hours on the tac. So, I did and engine overhaul.  16 years later and 5600 hours on the tac.  water again in the oil.  I do change the water filter every other year. Not real sure I want to spend 10 grand for an overhaul.  That "mechanic in a can" sure sounds good to me, but I'm very doubtful that will help but may be worth a try.

Those farmalls were notorious for that. Might be the o-rings on the sleeves  and you might try putting a half pint of hydraulic oil in the radiator and they might swell up. I did that on an old oliver once.

I hate to say this but I think your o-rings went bad on the sleeves.  My 1066 did this  and they are only good for about 4000 hours give or take a few hundred. As for the 2590 I have one and love it.  The motor has 9600 hours on it and never touched.. I have put some money in the rear end but what do you expect from a 200 horse tractor  from the days of heavy tillage.  I also have a 2290 and and am not afraid to buy another 90 series.  Just bought a 5088 today.  I only dom mostly hay  so not alot oif heavy pulling.

Not real likely but the trouble could be in the oil cooler.

I've got a 2090 as my primary loader tractor.  Granted it has never been pulled hard only loader and round baler but that tractor has virtually been trouble free.  Just over 4400 hours.  It did have fuel tank algae last year but that wasn't the fault of the tractor.

I know its late to answer this question,but i am a mechanic and i face the same problem before.If you see the oil pan full with water,you have to change the oil cooler,most diesel engines has oil cooler fixed to reduce the oil high temprutre,and dont try to make maintenance for the old one,just through it a way and replace it with new one,i hope this answer can help in the next days

Ok, r3020 and manz--hooc, if the oil cooler is compromised would not there be oil in the water also?  I had an "off duty" mechanic check to see if there was oil in the water.  He found none.  It would sure be cheaper to replace an oil cooler than an engine over haul.
