Not mine. What do y'all think about the new motor? How much does it hurt value? Just curious.

Probably good for cultivating, but I doubt it would pull (push) the plow.

My Hines H-1600 is very close to being a G clone and they solved almost all the short comings of the G,the Hines has Hyrastatic drive,dual hydraulics front and rear,Cat 0 3pt front and rear,easy on and off the seat and has almost 2X the HP plus I bought it and a parts tractor for $1,000.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I have used a couple as my sole cultivating tractors over the years in my produce business and have never killed the engine for lack of power. Actually of the 5 I have, a couple have the rear wheel centers welded up as they have broken or cracked over the years. They were also known to break rear axles...I would not call them underpowered....

I can cultivate on less than a gallon an hour, pretty cheap compared to what it costs to upgrade to a modern engine or electric....I will keep mine stock.

You must have some very loose soil and if you keep it under strain on a hot day it'll get hot in a hurry because it doesn't have very good coolant circulation.

Those belts are hanging way out there on the engine crankshaft... Looks like a single cylinder engine...

Looks like one of those little 1 cylinder Harbor Freight engines, for all that work and engineering
I would have had a two cylinder Kohler or Honda on it. Nicely done though, I'd like a better look at the adaptation at the rear end on the tractor

I would like to go see that thing. Pull start. How does transmission work? Interesting for sure. Maybe more HP than original?

They were build on the B/C main case. An adapter housing went on in place of the B PTO unit and the Continental engine went on that. The front frame went on the front in place of the torque tube. Straight axles in place of the B offsets and a reduction gear shaft is in the adapter housing.

Looks good wonder what the HP is on the new motor,that was one of the big drawbacks with the G it was way underpowered.

The hydraulic alone is worth half of that.

For working the tractor, modern air cooled engine makes sense to me, along with a nice clean installation. Those electric conversions are more show than go.

Value depends on who wants it really, a collector or someone who wants to work it in vegetable growing. Guy down the road from me has a couple in good shape that donít have original engines and cowlings and he says in his type of growing operation, farmers donít care about originality, just function. Many are being converted to electric so the type of gas engine doesnít matter anyways.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
