Yes, frankenstein a perfectly good JD and put in a big block v8.
You've surely seen the v8 classes they have now at some antique pulls....being a deere guy, its hard to watch all these other colors do this but no green one! However, as far as I know deere didn't make a good tractor to do this with, until after what is considered antique. But I'm not sure on the year ranges. Even the 630/730 or 60/70 have the hand clutch which I doubt would hold 500hp.

Lots of em. Typically use a pickup rearend inside crankcase. Use a spool. Weld crank to axle etc. Not sure about hp on the clutch, but there's an 830 with a 3208 twin turbo cat that holds up, & an R with an 1800hp Allison V12, automotive style clutch but 100% bone stock after that- throws roosters in the tractor pulls :-)

there's a G with a 454 around here, 9500 90 degree gearbox in the crankcase, as for a perfectly good 2cyl. or perfectly good for nothing?
