Hi Was just wondering what kinda tractor motor you can do parts maybe machine work and labor on for 2 grand . I just did a 3.152di perk. it was $5500 for motor parts/ machining and a complete single plate clutch assembly. my time only came to $2000. Or are you just talking basic in frame? Regards Robert

Robert. I would love to do a few for that price. I have never charged anywhere near that for a rebuild and no I don't do inframes for anyone. I can buy a complete master rebuild kit for that engine, with new pistons, sleeves, rings bearings, valves,springs, guides and keepers all gaskets and seals and oil pump for less than $500.00. I do all my own machine work except grinding the crank,if needed.I can pull it rebuild it and put it back for about 1000.00 to 1500.00 labor. If the pump and injectors need work,another 800.00 to 1000.00. Oil-filters and antifreeze-hoses etc another 150.00. Gas engines are cheaper.I do 8N fords all the time for 1200.00 to 1500.00 bucks. Either you paid too much or I'm too cheap.

Hi Thanks for the reply I refuse to do in frames too.
They don't come in my shop, the main dealers do them and at $120 an hour.

They can deal with mad customers when the clutch falls out 50 hours or less after, or oil leaks from the crank, or a bearing picks up somewhere and totals the motor. I've seen happen the odd time or three, when I was called to look at the tractor that's running rough after the in frame.

I can see how you can do it for that price. My shop rate is 45 an hour, that motor was a pig to do as it was in a 2500 Massey forklift so had about 45 hours in it total, from pushed in the shop to driving out again. I can't do machining here so I get Royally adjusted on that and can't justify the 10's of thousands in tools for heads, cranks and boring equipment.

The sleeves took a day to do as they would not come out and the machine shop wanted $700 to do them at $70 an hour plus other work on the head, so a $1000 would of gone there in no time. parts where crazy for the non jobber stuff you cant get through sources other than Perkins.

Believe it or not it was gonna be more expensive for a crate motor up here in Canada, than a total re build on this one!.
Regards Robert
