Can ANYONE tell me if a D 17 series 4 in excellent condition, was a diesel, but they now put a D 19 GAS engine in it (72hp is what they say it is now) would this tractor be worth more with this engine or less? Will the rest of the tractor hold up to the extra horsepower?
Second: Is a D 17 GAS worth more, and more desirable, than a D 17 DIESEL? Which would be the better buy and the better tractor?
Third: Would a D 19 DIESEL be a better and more desireable tractor than a AC 170 GAS?
Fourth (and LAST): What is a good average price to pay for a:
D 17 DIESEL Series 4 in excellent shape- ?
D 19 DIESEL in excellent shape - ?
AC 170 GAS with 2500 hrs in REAL good shape-?
D 17 Series 4 with D 19 GAS engine (what would it be worth in EXCELLENT shape-?
ALL HAVE FACTORY 3pt HITCHES! ALL HAVE minimal hours (4000 hrs at MOST), ALL in GREAT shape!
I can't tell you how much I would appreciate ANY info that I could get in regards to these questions, I would be ETERNALLY greatful!!!
