The Chev 250 replaced the AC 226 (D17) when the EIII combine became the K. They had a belt driven governor and used no bell housing as the drive pulley for the combine was bolted to the flywheeel.

There's a couple guys on allischalmersdotcom that have the 292 Chevy conversion. They talked about it being made "legal" for their tractor pulling group, i think it was Oliver guys, to get larger engines that were never put in tractors. Maybe it was combines or something like it. The Gleaner division of A-C used Chevy gas engines.

Would be a lot easier if you started with a WD45 Diesel.

there are none around here and i am getting a wd45 for 200 with a stuck engine and i got a 250 chevy sitting in shed. did the gleaner combines have a spacer plate to hook to bellhousing or is the bellhousing on a wd45 diesel the same as a chevy engine.

I don't know what is involved but a 250 or 292 inline-6 in a WD would be a power house! :o

Won't be able to keep fuel in it with a 292..!! The 250 won't have the torque of the AC 4 cylinder.. I would say, get a good 350 Chevy (Olds?) V-8 Diesel and have plenty power, not need a governor and it will be easy on fuel..! Would look good and you probably won't need to lengthen the frame rails..

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
