Hi guys! Looking for some info on 460. It has a 301 combine motor with minor head work. Has a TA 18x4x34 tires. Wondering if this motor is strong enough to pull 4mph classes and 5500-7500 weight classes. Sharp looking tractor. Owner says it is 100hp. Ive had my eye on it for a long time. Just wondering if it would be worth the investment. I currently have an Oliver 88 and do really well with it. This 460 just caught my eye 6 years ago and there's something about it I fell in love with. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I do agree with 535353M. Now my experiences. I am running 321 cubic. stock stroke,3 15/16 bore, 10.7 to 1 compression, a little head work and a lot of cam, stock 460 rpm plus 10%, 105 hp. Run 4 mph 15.5 top cut class 5500, 6000, 6500. Never come close to running out of power. Now I don't think I am running with the best in the country either, but I always finish in the top 4 or 5. I have built a half dozen of these 460 engines from 50 horse to 112 horse. My problem with your engine is I can't get that much horse out of a stock 301 with nothing more than a little head work. A stock 301 at stock 460 rpm will only seem to produce 75-78 hp. But there is always the chance I have been doing something wrong all these times. All you can do is try. If you don't have enough hp at least you have a tractor with a dam good start. As long as the price is right.( that sounded like a game show ). Good luck have fun. Lee

pedestals for 4-560 LEE460?

No I donít. Never looked that deep into lightening mine up. By that time it seems like alot of work for little gain. I have heard of a company that makes aluminum platforms. I donít recall where they are but I always thought that would be the most bang for the buck. How light are you and how much do you want to shave?

I pull in the 5500 lb class now and right now with me on it I have about 220lbs of movable weight
but I am changing rear tires that'll be fresh cut and a little taller so it may need more weight on the front
once I get them swapped out. I am running cast hubs and I plan on going to taper lock or weld on. Pressed steel wheels all around and running lo-pro's on the front. Power steering parts are removed and no fenders.

Thatís true. I just never understood why a person donít want to use the power that he has. I would like to go as heavy as possible but thereís no one to pull .
