The odd dozers, HD-5, 7, 9. . . had Detroits. When AC figured out people were bypassing Allis for engine parts they bought... BUDA. The interesting thing was BUDA wasn't a bargain for AC. When allis purchased them the engines were hand made they weren't production, mass produced. Allis lost on the deal. Cockshutt didn't get to use BUDA anymore. Then Oliver picked up Detroit. Funny how stuff works out.

HD-10,-14,-20 all had Detroit's(GM). Early 50's GM bought Euclid and AC decided to produce their own engines rather than buy engines from competitor. Enter BUDA exit GM. Early HD-6s had BUDA and Allis Chalmer markings on the engines. All HD-6s had the 344 cu in 4 cylinder engines model HD344. Later called 6000 and 7000 (turbo). I have heard stories on the net that BUDA is back in business.
I have seen HD-6s converted to Detroit 3-53 power should be an easy swap with good power and parts availability.

Good Luck,

Today's Featured Article - Third Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. While I love straightening sheet metal, cleaning, and painting old tractors, I use every excuse to avoid working on the on the electrics. I find the whole process sheer mystery. I have picked up and attempted to read every auto and farm electrics book with no improvement in the situation. They all seem to start with a chapter entitled "Theory of Electricity". After a few paragraphs I usually close the book and go back to banging out dents. A good friend and I were recently discussing our tractor electrical systems when he stated "I figure it all comes back to applying Ohms Law". At this point ... [Read Article]
