It can be worked over/modified to fit your manifold and be made compatible with your governor linkage.

So a d-19 carb will bolt right on a 45 manifold.

What are your intended uses of this 45 HP tractor that now has 70 HP ?? Yes, it certainly can be done, if your pocketbook is large enough. A turbocharger will require using very high octane gas all the time and I don't feel is a good idea. Connecting rods are kind of light for a turbo, altho I do know of at least one that has been done like that. Keystone turbos will sell you a "kit", and then when it doesn't work, they don't know who you are. If you are thinking of tractor pulling it, a turbo will see to it you won't get to pull for competition, only exhibition. Raising the compression to 8.0 to 1 (a 170 motor kit) and using a modified D-19 carburetor and D-17 governor spring will get you to the 70 HP mark. A 175 grind on your camshaft will get you a few more HP. All these changes will run on 87 or 89 octane gas.The only thing you can do without tearing down the engine is the D-19 carb that has been made to fit your engine.
