Great looking project!

Do you suppose that"s a little bit too much horse for the wagon?

Hello Doc Larry,
I noted with great interest the photo of the "LA" fitted with the Detroit model "6-71" engine, you ask wether she has now got to much horse for the cart. NO not at all, that wonderful "CASE" transmission would stand the power from that engine with no problems at all !!
That backend is in my opinion an engineering masterpiece capable of most anything you could throw at it - typical case design and engineering.

Did you know that Deere & Co in the mid 1950's purchased an "LAI" new and fitted it with a "3-71" Detroit, and used it to test the traction capabilities of the extra power delivered etc etc. I have seen a very recent photo of that very tractor taken at a tractor show in 2006 at Penfold, Illinois, U.S.A, but have mislaid it's designation number given to it by Deere test engineers. Nice to see such a historic tractor has been preserved fotr future generations.

Sincere regards

Alan,

My late uncle, retired CASE engineer, would love to have heard your comments.

For a few years I ran an old Austin Western 99H road grader ( maintainer, patrol, and who knows what you call them down there) - snowplow that I had re-powered with a 6N71 (replacing the stock 4N53). Great machine for plowing and the noise scared the bejesus out of all the tourist skiers! Hard on axles, though, and that didn't have a turbo, just the stock blower.

Spring is here this week...

Wow, what a nice job someone did. If you notice, that 6-71 is also turbocharged. I'd love to hear it run. Does he pull with it? Steve

From what I see of the engine it has 3 access plates on the left side that makes it a 3/71 if it were a 6/71 the hood would have to be stretched way out and also the wishbone. Also I notice that it has a turbo charger on it.

If you look close you will see there are 4 covers showing. The other 2 are hidden by the generator, and power steering pump. Looks much longer than a standard LA to me. DK

DK I think you are correct I was a little hasty in my judgment earlier.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
