for what ive seen, they do help vs a 201ci. slight modification to the 201s timing cover and water pump are required to fit a gleaner block. i was thinking the water manifold doesnt fit the gleaner head. youd have to cut the 201 crank pulley out so itll slide all the way on to the crank.

Cubes are the same. What you would gain is higher compression, full pressure lube, and more rpm. Also have a stronger block and possibly a better cam. I asked this question in the external_link and really never got a good answer. It's a cheap way to go from WD45 power to strong D 17 power in about an hours work swapping engines. The club rules will dictate weather or not a Wd or WD45 can run with a Gleaner engine. Probably be ok as long as you don't place in the top 5. Seems to be the way all "grey area" tractors fall.

A qualified depends is the answer.

You are talking about the engine out of a E Gleaner. These were based on the late D17 engines and have similiar HP. The one I have on a pallet has a single speed governor. This means you idle the engine by bypassing the governor and closing the throttle manually. Other than that it should be pretty much a drop in switch.

HOWEVER there is another issue not so easily resolved. How strict are the rules where you pull? If you are required to have a original engine you are gonna have some major work. The outward appearance of the block will be a dead giveaway for those in the know. No tappet coverplate (this one is gonna be pretty much impossible to fix) Full flow oil filter, etc.

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]
