Certainly, Chris has a valid point. If need big horsepower on a day to day basis, buy a bigger tractor. The size, weight, and parts reliability are greatly enhanced. Putting a turbo on a smaller tractor goes beyond an increase in power. My son and I put a turbo on a 970 a number of years ago. The pump was turned up and there was a maximum of 113 horsepower on the dyno without the turbo. We left the pump at the same setting but added the turbo. The horsepower jumped to 176 horsepower. What's the point? Waisted fuel! We were using 176 horsepower worth of fuel but only getting 113 horsepower! We were able to turn the fuel adjustments way back and still had far more horsepower than before. The turbo setups were taken from stock Case tractors which had turbos at a tractor salvage yard for $250 - $3oo. We have yet to experience any drive train or engine failure because of adding turbos. My son is in partnership with a fellow in Wisconson. They have a Pro-stock 1090 Case tractor that is putting out more than 1,500 horsepower. Most of parts in the drive train and rearend are stock. Want to see this critter run? It will likely be at the National Farm and Machinery Show in Louisville, KY in February.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Lead Substitutes - by Mike Schordine. Lead was oriinally added to gasoline as an upper cylinder lubricant. It lubes the valves and seats. If you rebuild the motor, you could use hardened seats and valves, and unleaded fuel. But if your old tractor runs good, a simple lead substitute added to the gas is a perfectly reasonable solution. And, if you are like me, your tractor is under cover, but it sits outside. So with every temperature change, the humidity in the air collects in the fuel tank, in the form of water. ...
