This tractor was at the show yesterday. I've talked to the guy that built and owns this several times. Very nice man. Ita got a 302 and sounds sweet.

I'm wondering how they figure out the adapter plates on these v-8 conversions. Must be really good with a measuring stick is all I can say....
guess maybe a 460 is out of the question, huh....

I saw a display of several of the kits at the Portland Ind. show one time and for all the time saved from trail and error thats probably not all that bad. As for the 460 I say heck yeah! Maybe a little hole in the hood with a tunnle ram and 2 4's.

You got me on that one Dave. Guess the picture in my mind got ahead of my common sense. :D :D :D :D
That's ok...what is it they say..."Where there's a will, there's a way" ??? I have a picture of a Case vac at the Greenville, Illinois show that's powered with a Honda 450cc engine off of a motorcycle. Don't know if he had any power, but he sure had his selections of ground speed. The motor sat crossways and the countershaft sprocket chain drove the transmission input shaft.

He did fine till he put those headlights on the hood.
A 450 Honda had thirty some horsepower, but little to no torque. Course the extra five speed should help with that! :lol: :lol:
