I"m thinking of setting up a dual purpose farm stock puller. Something around the 10000lb class. Supposed to be 1970 or older, uncut tires for my local pull. I"m thinking of the oliver 1850D. How is the perkins 354 diesel? is the wakashaw 310 better? thoughts? thanks J

Unless you already have an 1850D I would try a different model. The perkins is a decent engine, but my preference would be a 1950gm or 1950T, 1855 diesel or 1955. A cat-powered 2255 wasn't built till 1972, plus it would be tough to get that tractor down to 10,000. The 1950gm 4-53 detroit is inexpensive to build, and you could have anywhere from 120-150 horse and still use it on the farm. The T, 1855 and 1955 have the 310 turbo which is also capable of similar horsepower #s and it's also inexpensive to overhaul, just make sure it has 12 point rod bolts and one piece piston pin bushings or you will have a rod go through the side of the block. Also some early 1855's didn't have oil coolers, make sure it has one(the oil filter mounts on it.) The big advantage these three tractors have is the over/under hydraul-shift. You can shift from direct down to under and there is no hesitation or "jump" like with an IH ta. The 1950 was never offered with an over/under, and the 1850 only had it the last couple years of production. I have a friend with a T and a 1855 and he's very competitive in the 9,500-10,500 farm classes.
