I just junked a 55T. It had the same engine as used on a C. I put the engine on a Super C that I had bought that the block was cracked.

George is right the 55 series used the C113 engine.The later balers used the C123.They will fit farmall ABC series tractors.The only difference is the casting notch for srarter mount on right side.

Later 55 balers used the 113 and 123 engines. However I have literature from about 56 that shows the C 60 rated at 15 hp on the 55's. It may have just been used one year untill they went to the bigger engine. For some unknown reason the 50 with the c-60 shows 16 hp while the early 55's with the C-60 show only 15 hp which was underpowered to say the least.

The International 50T (twine) and 50W (wire) balers used the Farmall Cub C-60 engine rated at 16 HP. The International 45 baler used a Wisconsin TFD four cylinder air cooled engine. The International 55T (twine) and 55W (wire) balers used the Farmall Cub C-60 rated at 15 HP. I don't know why the engine was rated one horsepower less on the later bailers. The electric baler mentioned was a 45 with an electric motor and was shown at state fairs and such but I don't know if any were actually sold. I saw it in Memphis at the International Harvester exhibit at the Mid South Fair, probably in 1956.

I haven't seen one for 45 years, but the ones I remember had Wisconsin air cooled engines. I know there were at least a few that were powered by electric motors run off an Electrall unit, but I think those were rare. I've never seen one. The rest, and by far the greatest number, were pto powered.
