I"m working on putting a Chevy 350 in my 51 H. I have the motor mounted to the original H motor plate and bolted to the tractor. I am waiting on a starter at this moment so I can proceed further with the tractor reassembly. It definitely is not an easy project but I think it can be completed in the next few months. An M conversion should be a little easier because of the size difference.

No sense in messing around, put an IH truck motor in there. Keep it all in the family.

This is from Farmall land Museum in Avoca, Iowa, Jerry might be willing to help you with some info

Some years ago , I saw an M with a Ford V 8 and I think it was a 460, they said it wasnt that hard to install.

It is a do-it-yourself proposition. There are threads in the archives that deal with various aspects of the subject. I've seen one with a flathead Ford, which looked real nice, and one with a 350 Chevy that didn't. I guess the key is to research as much as you can and take your time. What are you thinking of using as a motor?

I don't think there is such a thing. It's pretty much do-it-yourself all the way.
