Re: 7610 ploughing
We had two 7610s and a 5000 (now with 6610 engine), none of
them went porous though... luckily. We've had this tractor
from new...1985. :-D

Re: 7610 ploughing
Well Ken,
forgot to say one of the Ford dealers that used to call with
us used to dip the engine hoping it had went porous so that
he could sell us something new. What sorts of tractors do
you drive? Where abouts in Ireland are you from?

Re: 7610 ploughing
Well timmy. If you knew anything when an engine goes porous
it means that the water in the engine is able to leak into
the oil. or vis versa. Ford tryed their best to solve this
problem by introducing ribbed engine blocks on later models.
Ford 7000's were pron to this as it was a 5000 engine block
bored out creating very thin jacket walls. Do you understand
now timmy or would you like a diagram timmy.;-)

Re: 7610 ploughing
The 7610 started life as one of Fords worst tractors with
the engine that bloody gearbox and all the other 10 series
promblems in early 80,s, but the mark 3 7610(1989/91)was a
near perfect as you could get

Re: 7610 ploughing
Yeah Tutts DYWA your diagram

So it’s about dimensions and not the quality of the metal.
I have a neighbour who always talks about the bad quality
metal in Leyland engines (specifically the crankshaft
bearings) and yet you read about these machines working for
ten’s of years without ever needing to be rebuild.
What are your views Prof?
Is this the case with all the fords of this era?
Would the 5000 engine become porous with its heavier walls
and how long does it take for these engines that are
susceptible to this to show signs?
What do you think of the engines in XL internationals
:-D

Hey guys leave the 10's alone They were the first 4 cyl
series from Ford to have 4 wd. Surely they deserve
recognition for that????:-)
