my 1955 ran 120hp and I worked it as a main tractor for many years, if you have the block with the oil cooler I wouldn't be afraid of a 310 if you do a proper rebuild with good rod bolts, one piece pin bushings ect., everyone wants a 5.9 does everyone forget about the 354 Perkins?

Gonna need a tub from an 1850, but even so, that's the direction I would head.

This engine was already equipped with the one piece pin bushings but it don't has the block mounted oil cooler like one of my other 1855's has.

It is gonna have a complete rebuild.

Crank grind, rods re-sized, valve job,new pistons,rings,bearings.etc

As for being gutless. My other two 1855's run either a hard core baler or a 14' haybine and both have a hard time maintaining 2000 rpm running full bore pulling either , one of them has a 4-53 detroit in it.

I call that rather gutless for 100+ hp engines.

A Perkins 453 migt be a good choice as well but i do have the waukesha and a 5.9 cummins on hand but not a Perkins.
