Looking to buy a 706 diesel. Found two different tractors at the same dealer. One has a 282 motor for $5500.oo the other a 310 motor for $5200.00. Dealer told there is not much hp difference in the two nothing you could tell. Said both run 75 hp just the 310 engine a newer model. Does anyone know about these tractors? Plus & negitives, price range, pulling power compaired to a 7700 Ford tractor? Thanks

Most 706's had the D-282. It uses glow plugs for starting and was also found in the 560. You will need to use the glow plugs even on the hottest summer days. The 282 was a good engine. The very last 706's, right before they changed it into the 756, had the D-310 German Diesel. We have a 686 with the D-310, it has 6600 hours on it, and it has never been overhauled. It's very good engine, but they can be cold-blooded. Early German Diesels like the 706 had 15:1 compression and a full fuel control to help starting. Our 686 still has the 15:1, but no full-fuel setting, so it is probably the hardest-starting German Diesel. We also have a 786 with a late D-358 German (Same engine as the 310, just more stroke) with 16:1 pistons and no full-fuel, easiest starting diesel I've ever been around (this engine has 7400 hrs. never been overhauled). 16:1 pistons from late engines will fit a 706 D-310, should you decide to overhaul it. I would agree with your dealer, there won't be a noticable difference in rated horsepower, 706 with D-282 has 73 hp. 706 with D-310 has 76 hp., but when you really lug it down, the D-310 will have more torque rise. If it was me, I'd grab the one with the D-310, that is one of the best tractors there is, and the price seems right. $5500 seems too much for the one with the 282, unless it is in perfect condition.

Don't know anything about 7700 ford. But there is a big difference in the 2 706'6 the D282 will not stay with the D310 that does not say the 282 is no good it just means the D310 has more cubs heaver engine 282 has the glow plugs the D310 doe not. The D310 may start hard if it is not 100% on rings and valves and there is different piston to help this if it has the newer pistons should start better. the D310 is a good engine IH used it in 706 756 826 786 886 and some of the 30 sieres tractors. 3488 3688 715 compines. should get 80 HP. out of 310
