I don't know if it would do any good or not. Are you looking for power or a novelty? My LA is about 75hp with an overbore kit and propane head.

While we are on the topic of LA engines, can the kerosine/gas head be modified to give higher compression?

I have seen suggestions for using LP gas heads, but I have never seen one here in Australia. All LAs are getting rare here.

Also, what are good sleeves and pistons to use to get more power out of the LA without spending hugh dollars?

There is some tractor pulling here, but not a big sport as in USA. Just wondering what it would take to make up a competitive LA

Bob, Some guys around here put 5 1/8 pistons in La's for pulling for a cheap build and they ran pretty good, I believe they were Cummins pistons. The compression will come up with increased displacement. There are some good cam grinders in the US that would accent the bigger displacement. The lp head is supposed to be about the best flowing head for the La tractors.
