Ron SA is right on both counts about the cooling and durability aspects. I built one for a puller that does get into the 70 HP range. It has a special grind on the cam and much increased compression but only 285 cubes. HP is only one aspect of a DC. The torque increase that gives you even 55 hp is something you can really feel in the seat of your pants. mEl

Also, bear in mind this is a 3 main bearing block. At high HP the rear main bearing web will crack. Mel can probably tell you how to reinforce that area.

yes, the rear saddle will pull out of the block in hi hp alpplications and the cranks are suspect especially if the engines are lugged as they like to do. We have a stock stroke DC engine with the rear saddle supported and all is well so far at better than 120 hp on a M&W dyno at 1400 engine rpm. mEl

70 hp is not a reasonable goal. 52-55 is reasonable. Even at 55 the cooling system is marginal. For 52-55 hp, you will need 4" pistons, cold manifold, and high compression head #5505A. The rpm will need to be increased from rated 1200 to about 1500. The later 830 had about 3% more cubes than the 4" pistons and ran 1900. It was rated about 65 hp. The DC rod bearings are babbit and no oil cooler so it is not a great engine for souping up and doing field work with. The 830 engine was made of better stuff.

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
