ok so another idea
Motorcycle boring bar
vidlink to illustrate
 this could be mounted on the block head bolts possibly using an adaptor plate
I have seen some where they do bigger verions for cars.  if they could be modified or
adapted it would solve the problem possibly
I think the Van norman boring bar max is 5.5inch.
what bore is the farmall :-)

not sure if this helps
The internation 634 tractor was a dry liner engine , I have done a couple of them in my time
back in my apprenticeship days
you can manufacture a draw tool to extract the liner
ours was a big spanner and a long piece of threaded rod and two big nuts
a large dia tube on to top of the engine block with a cross bar with a hole drilled.
and an insert that fitted the liner exactly  at the bottom.
refitting was a hammer and a block of wood
that was a few years ago now  :D
wet liners were a lot easier to do  ;D

I'm guessing, now we are 100 years on, ::) the liner  may be slightly attached to the parent metal
of the block and this may no longer be an option   ::)

I got a second hand one for 300  we used it for the 3 months we were involved in the project and sold it for 350.
I now have an auto start on my dyno but it cost me a bit of dosh, the Solo was avery cheap get out of jail
and cost very little , but its each to their own.

I have had customers at the shop with starting rollers and vans . such a faffing going on.
then the trolley with the wheel you push agains the bike.
both two man operations or grumpy wife  ;D

then the solo arrived, what a breath of fresh air. I bought one second hand and sold it when we finished the project we were on with.
cannot recomend them high enough
or any such comparable product although the home brews never seem to be as good some how

nice one  :)

I read this
I should probably own up to being a bit of a wally when buying the bike test road it briefly but enogh to know it was running nicely, ticked over smoothly and went through the grears OK. I picked it up in a van the next week without even firing the bike up and when I got it home as the weather was rubbish I decided to give it a once over including cleaning the carb. So I have no way of knowing for sure if I've caused this or if something happened with the bike in between the test ride and me picking it up.****

then looked at the pictures
can't for life of me see how it affects separate cylinders
but the slide looks wrong in the picture.

Just an idea
simple question
are the throttle slides in the right carbs, when you took them off did you mix them up
put one in back to front.

can you open the throttle fully are both slides even, and look the same visually

edit ; DDuuuuHH   !!
just watched the full video and seen you only have one carb . but it was the one photo I saw  ;D  I think you have the throttle slide fitted backwards but I could be wrong
