I took the 1550 on a 73 mile tractor ride Friday and checked the oil when I got back, it used 3/4 of a quart of oil. It runs good and but it has some blow by, hopefully it will make it thru tractor drive and show season before I have to tear into it. GRRRRRR!!!!!!

The 77 engine would be an easier fit.

Sounds like a couple of plow days are in order.

maytimes those engines need to be worked hard at operating temperature. they get carboned up from doin chores and not warmed up. that glazes the cyl's and they use oil. u need to check compression first and after the work out. no sense worrying about if it will make it. only thing that will happen is spark plugs foul up on heavy oil burners, not being worked, so carry spares.

For the use you talk about I would just buy a few extra quarts of oil. Also it may get better with more running if it's been sitting alot

It's a gasser, we left at 7:30, 1/2 hour break about 9 and got to lunch at 10:30. left about 11:45 and got back about 3. Mainly used for tractor rides and shows, I'd like to do a few plow days with a 3 bottom plow. I'm thinking 20w50 oil and lots of Lucas treatment for now. Depends what I find inside of it, I'm thinking just rings and grind the valves and check the bearings. No need to put a lot of $$$ into it when it's not a hard working tractor.

Id run straight 30w in it the rest of the summer. Add some Lucas and maybe shell get better the more you run it. We use Bomgarrs 30w in our two 1550 high speeds. Dumped in some Lucas and they did not use any oil on the WHO ride 160-170.miles. You going on the 2022 WHO ride Chris? Itll be the 25th one. Dont know where itll be, but should be a good one.

My cousin borrowed our 1650 gasser to cut brush. I warned them to check the oil OFTEN. It used 10 gals of gas and 1 1/2 gals oil!

After I did some web searching I switched to 15/40 diesel oil ( had been using auto oil ) and the problem has mostly went away and does not foul plugs every time you start it. Boy! did that oil turn black quickly!

Just a thought, will an 88 motor bolt right in or would I have to change the long shaft?? I have an extra motor for a 77 and an 88. I think the 77 motor would be under powered.

Shoot, we went on a 28 mile drive a week ago and when we stopped for lunch half way through, a guy with a Moline Z ran in to the auto parts store and came out with three quarts of oil and a bottle of Lucas additive and put it all in.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Gas or diesel? If diesel, it may just need some hard work after pottering around at low load?

You gonna use it for work or just shows? I know a few guys who would be happy if their tractor burned less than a quart running that long.

Rollins, son of the landowner, used the tractor. In the winter 1985, while in his possession the engine block cracked and was unrepairable. He had told my father ... [Read Article]
