I have a 1950 DC ,no hyd. but it is repainted,new Firestone tires,rebuilt head,misc. gaskets and seals. New front wheel bearings,battery cover,steering wheel and it really looks sharp.Anyway ,a retired farmer friend wants it,but wants to trade a 830 for it.The 830 has a bad engine on it,but he has a power unit that has been rebuilt that will fit on it he says.I don't know what condition the rest of the tractor is in.It still runs but knocks.I think it is a gasser,but don't know what the tires are like or if it a wide or NF.I really enjoy fixing these old tractors up,but have little need for them once they are done,other than a few shows or a parade now and then.A tractor with a 3pt. would be nice. What do you all think ? I would trust this mans word for what it is worth. John.

Sounds like you have a great deal of money in the DC. The 830 could turn out to be a money pit also. If it is Case-O-Matic, it's condition should be considered. They are expensive to re-build. There were far more 251 Power Units than 284's. Assuming the power unit is gas. The 251 would bolt in, but it wouldn't be an 830 anymore, power-wise. Lots to consider. Good luck.

I would go for it if the power unit engine is in good shape and both are the same fuel. 830 is a fine old tractor, spent many hours in the seat of a '63 830 diesel dual range with eagle hitch!!

I'll look at it when I get a chance,I don't think that this is a deal that has to be made overnite.I am hoping he will let me switch engines or see what is wrong with the 830,and then trade with him,or pay me a little for my time. I really don't know how much money I have in the DC,I don't keep track,if I did I probably wouldn't enjoy the hobby as much.Thanks for the replies.John.

Today's Featured Article - Usin Your Implements: Bucket Loader - by Curtis Von Fange. Introduction: Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he rea ... [Read Article]
