I just made a deAL for another tractor. :) 706D(282). Wide front,rollbar/canopy,3point,56 shifters,decent tires,good tin. But.........bad motor.The motor was running,useing a lot of oil,then it started knocking. The guy just parked it.Salvege/scrapper estimated it would be worth 600 across the scale.If I pick it up and save the trouble of hauling,He would let me have it for $450. Works for me. :)

Wide front alone is worth 450 if in decent shape, but you knew that already. Fantastic deal for a complete machine.

I wonder how that 282 would do at your altitude with a turbo.

Probably 80. My 'good' 706 with a 310 puts out 96 horse. The trouble is it gets hot. But it's got 'boo-coos' of power

Based on the comments, I'm assuming you are at a higher altitude and with it, the air density is such that for the given CFM through the radiator, you can't reject enough heat off it to keep the tractor cool?

If that's the case, you might be able to swap in a more efficient fan for not a ton of $$$'s and move more air - and perhaps quieter and maybe with less hp.

Google WingFan and/or Multi-Wing. They make some really nice axial fans and can easily custom size a fan for your hp and altitude expectations.

We are about 5200 ft in western Colorado. Water temp isn't the issue.It's exaust gas temperture. The exhaust temp can go 'through the roof' if I'm not careful and allow it to lug down/pull 'hard'.When the exaust temps start to go up,throttle down a bit,or downshift.Thank goodness I have a pyrometer,otherwise I would have melted it down a long time ago.

I'm thinking an engine swap in the future? Maybe a 5.9 cummins? Or a big block Chevy V8?

Nice! I just picked up a 756 gas narrow front. I'm going to keep the gas engine, but have read much about swapping in a Cummins 5.9 or an International D360 or DT360. Maybe one of these days.....

Hope you get it going strong!

Good luck,

I would love to have a 706 project. But wife says no more until I finish remodeling the bathrooms --sigh--.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
