I have a farmall m with a stuck engine. I'd like to make it a pulling tractor or increase some power since I'll be this far in the engine. Any ideas would be handy

It all depends on how much you want to spend.

If you want to add HP economically, you can do that with raising compression, will pull better and still work well, those parts are available on this site.

There is also a pulling forum on this site.

Would Dennys be alright to send my governor to? To modify it? I'm a new user, i have no clue. Building an H to pull with. Thanks for any advice. Or do you recommend somebody else?

Another thing, don't put a v8 in. Especially for stone boat pulling, they don't pull well.
I have a lot more respect for someone that builds the correct engine.

I am assuming your looking to pull antique "stock". Some clubs call it modified stock which to me is a much more accurate term. Modified stock pretty much wants a stock appearance and generally no stroker kits, no block modifications or other major work. What you could do for a tractor like yours to be competitive in such a class is to get the stepped head overbore kit from this site. Since you have an M and assuming its a stock c-248 block you can put the 4" stepped head overbore kit in. This will get you to 264ci. At that point a well tuned tractor will provide lots of pulling fun and still be usable on the farm.

If you want more: From there you could get headwork done, bigger valves and opening it up a bit.
With just the stepped head overbore kit you should be in the neighborhood of 45-50hp.
Start there. Overbuilding it doesn't necessarily equate to more fun and often times it takes fun away.

How much do you want and how deep are your pockets ??????? Ya want more then a stock 450 ???? or do you want to run with the big dogs ????? do you want to have fun in the stock classes?????? If you were working with a S/M block or a 400 block it would be sorta easy to get close to the 100 HP mark and still use it every day . That is IF you can find sleeves and pistons for 8500 ft. a stock 450 head and a little valve and port work a 450 gas intake/exhaust manifold a 450 blueprinted cam and a little dist work and a little balancing of the rotating members and a tiny little bit of carb tweaking. and about 10% over on factory RPM set. ANd the big thing not break the bank and have a tractor that can still be used for what ever . Now the hard part is finding the pistons as i have lost my source when Clyde Burkshire retired.

Old saying about that engine 100hp is easy but from there on it gets wxpensive so how much money do you want to spend and what do you want when finished. Then theres tires rims steel flywheel and the list goes on.

There are a multitude of ways to get "more power". Most(if not all) require large amounts of money. You can do a 'repower'(V8;Cummins or some other engine),or build a large displacement/custom engine.You can buy a 'ready made' one from Denny's. Decide which direction you want to go.Then open your wallet and pour money into your project.... LOL A Ketstone turbo on a 'stock' engine is probably the cheapest.Good luck!!

Denny's is the LAST place you want to go unless you have lots of money you want to waist and get nothing in return.

Don" get anything from Denny's you will get screwed. For a farmall , Marlatt , Lemmons and Baker are the best engine builders.There are 600 + cu. M's pulling at over 200 hp.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
