I think to make the 310 reliable at 125 hp may take some money. I think the crank and rods will need balanced, block may need line bored. If engine is apart, may need head done, and I"ve had a couple that needed the bottom of block where O rings seat sleeved. Is yours an oil cooler block? I think it should be to be worth the effort. As far as getting to 125, I have heard of people getting more just turning up the fuel. I haven"t heard many people think that an 1855 was gutless. Usually they ran pretty hot from the factory, and had more power than a lot of the competition.

I agree with the 310 not being "gutless", I always thought the 354 Perkins was gutless. The 310 equipped Olivers around here would always walk away from the 2-105 DOT4 Perkins. Nothing like a 310 running at 2500RPM.

Oh, they're awesome, until pieces of it's insides litter your fields or the crank snaps in half......

I like the 310, my 1955 did everything my 105 White did on less fuel and seemed like it was more torquey but with the Perkins you didn't have to worry about a rod ventilating the block.
