Yes the IXK can be converted to IXB. How hard are you going to work this crawler? Does your engine have a water pump? I know an area dealer that did a lot of that but he found that the water pump was needed. Very few IXK engines had factory water pumps but there was a kit to add one. You talk about your 2.2 diesel, at what RPM is that horse power ? Those crawlers were designed for farm work and low gear is not the best for dozer work nor is the wide gauge model. You need to tell us more.

Not planning on working it to hard. But you know sometimes you get into situations where you find your giving all you can. I know it won't make a good dozer even though the guy I got it from said that was what he was using it for. Came with a 'Ware' loader and also has a blade for that. I will use it mostly to bush hog the Black Locust that got out of control around here. I like the idea that not only it won't get flats but the tracks will also help in smashing down the thrones that are on the ground. The Isuzu 2.2 engines are more ready available and easier to get parts for. Not to mention a lots cheaper than a rebuild. Don't know what RPMs that horse power rating was at.
There is no water pump. Wonder what it would cost to add the kit?
