has any one out there had an oppertunity(sp) to repower an"M" or "F30"? I've had my H for ever and love it. I bought a vermeer 504g baler this year and the dealer told me the oliver 770 I had would handle it fine. Well, he was wrong. I have always loved Farmalls and would jump at the chance to sell my good old ollie to run it (baler) with the red. I have found a complete M and a Incomplete F30 locally. I would very much like to "repower" either of these old gals to suite my horse power needs (70hp). Some one told me that they had heard of an old international truck v8 that should bolt to the M. Any one heard of this? I also heard of people droping chevy 6 cyc and 8cy in to the F20s and F30s via connecting with ujoints. I know smart people would just go buy a 560 or 656 but with the current economy I'm not that smart! thanks for any help in advance Dan M. in Amsterdam Mo.

Dan, Have you considered looking for something with live PTO and a wide front that will already handle your baler. I bale about 2000 round bales every summer and I hate to think about the additional stress added to drive components of my baler if my PTO had to stop and start 6000 times per season. The wide front is just a stability issue, I seem to be on slopes too steep for row cropping about 75% of the time.

Good Luck.

I have a farm tractor book that has pictures of a Super M-V8 repowered with a 345 truck engine. it looks like they used 1/2" steel plate to make it fit the bell housing. I have no idea how one would set up the clutch though. I want to put a V-8 in my WD-9, but don't know how a person could set up the clutch to work properly. There was an I-9 in Rollag with an Oldsmobile engine in it, I have copied the article from the Rollag Show book and you can read it here

Where there is a will there is a way. Oh yeah and some $$$ helps too.

Good luck!
Steven

I just bought a 1949 Super A. The steering is very loose, play appears to be in the box. Has anyone fixed one of these?

70+ hp from a M can be acheived using the right combonation of stock IH parts. And, at 70+ hp their still reliable to work as hard has you want, all day long. Post a message requesting the help/advise of LES REPAIRS, he can tell you everything you need. Good luck.

U guys will think this is great

MY neighbor has a w-6 that a while back he put a 428 ford in it

it is awesome

he uses it on the corn drier

It dynoed at 90hp and 250 ftp of tourque at 3500 rpms

hp depends on only the cam u run

we've clocked it up to like 55 mph and its a blast to do donuts and go out on the roads and blow past the sunday drivers

Oh, its converted to lp to because of the 11.8-1 compression pinged bad on gas and lp runs about 106 octane so that cleared everything up
