What all did you do to your SC engine? My 52 SC smokes and is lacking in power. I understand they were never a power house and won't be. I've never done a compression test on it. Am wondering what you did and what you used for rings etc. gobble

You can bore out the sleeves of your '52 SC to 3 11/16" and put in button top pistons with a 5617 head in good shape along with the late model carb and you should be good for 37 hp. I have two '54's that have button top pistons with 3 5/8" bore that turn 32hp on the dino at 540pto rpm. The first time I pulled my '44 SC after rebuilding the head it powered out in 4500 class and had motor to spare. It is 3 11/16" bore. It carrys the front wheels. I use Hastings piston rings. I'm working to get 42-45 hp from an SC engine with modified factory parts.

I guess I don't understand why everyone thinks an sc is such a dog, Dad had a farm with lighter ground in the early 60's where he pulled 3-14's with one in 2nd and in the heavier clay loams an sc would pull 2-16's while an M or dc pulled 3-14 or 3-16

I like the sc for light farm and yard work. Just a nice little handy tractor that is much easier to drive and less ackward than a dc. That and the fact that they practially make gasoline.

I have seen SC's at tractor pulls that were very strong older fellow had it stock as he had not worked on it. Others would power out almost to embarras the owner. I have always wonndered if the timming gears were all cut with keyway the same. Should have pulled front cover on mine and tried different teeth.
