Turbocharging 310 German diesel
Posted 30 March 2007 - 12:10 PM
Out of curiousity, would it take a whole lot of headaches to take a turbo that was on a 282 to make it work on a 310? My initial thought was that if you made an adapter plate between the turbo and the manifold it would work, am I wrong? I don't know the make of the turbo off of the 282, but it has me thinking about putting it on a 310... I'm looking at a few 706 and 756 Germans right now. Hopefully settling on one here in the coming weeks. Thought that a turbo on that engine would snap it up nice, I'm not out to pull, just have a nice field tractor, especially running 234 husker/shellers and just do tillage, etc in the same gear it would without the turbo, just greater fuel economy and torque.
Anyone know of any nice tractors with a 310 that are for sale?
I love IH!!! I own three Super M's, 826GD with diamond cab, 1130 MF (the ugly duckling), 5288.
Starting dairy farming in 2007... What a ride. Record highs, record lows, record rains, record droughts...
Milking Holstiens (red and b&w) and Jerseys on our 70 cow operation. God bless small American Farms...
I enjoy dairy farming with my wife and custom harvesting with an assortment of New Idea Uni huskers, shellers, choppers, and combines (703,705,708x2,709RWA with 767,737,717x2,858 attachments). I combine small grain and soybeans with IH 315 and 82 (with pickup head) combines. Collecting 234 and 2-MH/2M-HD era pickers and shellers and attaching hardware.

I ran the turbo on my combine from 1977-83 with no problems.It sure was a horse when plowing thru deep mud.

On the other side we raked this over the coals and got one heck of a fire,
Mostly we were talking of torboing a D-358 and one of our overseas friends was kind enough to poast some specs from the DT-358 which we compared to the D-358 specs and then came to the conclusion, That those Germans could go either way, the berings weren't much larger on the DT about 2mm which to me as a machinest (in training ) isn't all that much, the M&W turbo shuoldn't be enough boost to hurt the D-310 at a stock fule setting, and it is pretty hard to tweak those Reobert Bosh pumps, at least if you don't Know what you are doing.

I also have a 3088 D358 with M&W turbo . This also has been a good result. Very good on fuel and good power.
Does anyone know how many Custom756 tractors were made?
