Got a 301 in a 185 with 12,000 hrs, little blowby, uses no oil,pump and injectors have been reworked once. Will start fairly well down to 40 degree's needs plugged in below that.

They are great engines , easy to get lots of power out of them and hold up very well , luv the hum of that 301 in a 180 tractor , when they start to lose compression and the fuel system gets well used they get hard to start, i back the timing off a little and it helps , but just a shot of either and it,ll be there - the later ones in a 200 etc, do have electrolicess issues very early on , but run some stuff in the water and ur good to go

Lots of versions, from about 65 to about twice that much HP. I always thought they were a good engine. Good power and economy for an engine of that era. As you have been asking- they're not always the best starting. One of the last things I did at the AC dealer I left in about 1984 was get a basket case 190XT going. Sent the head to the machine shop. Pump to the pump shop. New pistons, sleeves, etc, etc. It held about 105 HP on the dyno right after the overhaul, but would barely start unassisted on a 50 degree day.

Today's Featured Article - Search For Spares - by Anthony West (UK). Following on from the aquisition of the old Fordson F, I was very much in need of spares. As a novice though I didn't appreciate the fact that there were so many Fordson tractors made, that all the other makes seem rare by comparison. As far as I was aware a fordson was a fordson and it was only through trial an ... [Read Article]
