Agreed, that's what I asked in my original response, just not as detailed as you have asked. He's not telling us something, which is fine. His money, his choice. At first I thought he might be looking for a cab but then he asked if the fenders from his 766 would fit over to the 966. My only guess now is something is really wrong with the 766, or he figures he can sell the 766 for more and make some money, IDK.

My 766 is an awesome tractor. It runs flawlessly. It has a new TA and the engine doesn't use oil. I don't farm. Its a fun and pretty toy.i get a lot of compliments on it.I pull my 766 in our local stock tractor pull. Our 10000lb class is basically set up for 856 and 966 tractors. If i could switch to a 966, i would be more competitive in the 1000 and 1200 lb classes, and i would still have a loader tractor for tinkering around the yard.. Thats the only advantage.Thats why i'm trying to get the 9 as cheap as possible, because i'm figuring i will have to put a new TA in it(even though the owner says it works fine).I don't think there's a big market for old 2 wheel drive tractors so i'm not thinking i'll get big bucks for my 766 even if it is a great tractor. i would hope to break even, but i've been wrong before. I'm enjoying the discussion. Thanks Kent

Thanks for the explaination, helps us understand what your actually looking for rather then shooting in the dark.

I would slap a turbo on that 766 and do some pump work and maybe some bigger injectors. You should easily run with 966's and 856's. As far as horsepower your not gaining much between the two, unless them 966's and 856's your pulling against are turbo'd as well.

In our 10000lb stock class you are allowed to have 101

rated HP and your allowed to be 15% over. So a 966 is stock at 100 HP and the 414 can be turned up to 115. The 856's can be turned up to about 105. My 766 will only go up to about 92HP. This is the only reason i'm thinking about the 866. Turbos are not allowed on stock tractors unlessoriginally equiped. Later Kent

Where are you located? I may be interested in that 766 if you follow through with your plan.

I live in Prince Edward Island. A little island in the Atlantic ocean. I'm about 6 hours from Bangor Maine. It would be quite a haul for you from South Dakota It does scoot along the road pretty good tho. LOL Kent

Given your location your probably really limited on what tractors are actually available too! That would be a long haul for that 766. Thanks though. Now that we have the whole picture I would go for the 966, especially if your looking forward to working on it and making it as nice as your 766. Good luck.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Round here the 766 is much more popular than the 966. The 766 should bring a bit more money.
