Do I need to put a 24 hr. armed guard around my Cx so the engine doesn't "disappear" in the night? Or maybe the whole combine? Definitely look around ,maybe abilene machine, worthington ag, Worth a phone call at least. Hope things get better, you're close to bein done and off bighorn huntin!!!!

WOW, so probably damaged the head in the process. It might be worth taking the head off though as finger crossed you might of got away with major damage.

It is worth a try to talk to your local New Holland dealer. A few CX840 engines have gone in this area in the past. If the New Holland service rep in your area is a good guy and he and your dealer are willing to push for you? You might be able to get New Holland to pay for part of a replacement engine. Even though it is off warranty. It is no secret to New Holland that CX840 engines can fail and they have dealt with this issue before.

I did hear a few years ago they had faults with injectors, overfueled and melted valves and pistons. Dont know if this is along the same lines.

The engine is a ford powerstar which was used in many tractors, the 840 suffers from serious engine problems the main problem is vibration and everything falls to bits internally.
