There is a guy close to me near Ponoka, Alberta, Canada that completely reconditions and repowers older V8 4WDs with N14 cummins. He has repowered serveral makes and models and also sells kits to do it yourself.

I looked at one that he has on consignment that he did 5 years ago and it looks like he does a very good job. He will give you a year warrentee on it and recondition it from one end to the other (differentials, transmission, drive shafts, bearings, hoses ect.), fresh paint job, new cab kit, and put a 10000hr truck N14 in it for $40,000.00. I think new tires would be extra.

Is is worth it to buy a reconditoned and repowered 4786 or buy an older green or red Steiger with high hours for the same money? I know there would be less rpm for the 10 spd transmission.

Here is his website http://www.kjrepower.com/pic008.html

i saw him on the prarie farm report a while ago he rebuilds everything and usually extends the frame to fit the bigger engines etc

i think 40.000 is to much you can go find an original with around 5000hrs for cheap and overhaul what you want etc


but that's just my oppion

To all the white people of America who honestly feel that the black people have been so mistreated and given such a bad deal in this country I can only suggest that you should move yourself and your family, if you have such, into one of their neighborhoods and do everything necessary to become a integral part of their society, make every effort to blend your lifestyle into theirs, go to their stores, churches, and social gathering places for your needed things in life. send your children to schools where their children are the majority of the enrollment, and where they mostly compose the faculty and administration, get a job where they are in the majority and hold the important management positions...and most importantly of all, go the many prisons where they are being, justly...and unjustly, incarcerated and visit them and see them trying to be rehabilitated, but obviously so suppressed in their efforts that rehabilitation is just impossible. Then, after you have really gotten to know these people...many, many, many of them, from all walks of their lives and societies, and seeing their obvious appreciation of life in America, come forward and make suggestions as to how we white people should go about changing our ideals and society to better accept and integrate these people into our lives so that in a reasonable amount time there will be no more distinctions or differences in how we whites and blacks view each other and the hoped for blending and melding of our races can be completed and we can love and appreciate one another as you must think God intended.

I cannot take credit for these words ,Wish i could

That kind of money should get you into a 9170 which would be a much better tractor. I'd take a high hour 9170 over a rebuilt 4786 any day.

I'd take a 20,000 houred southren belle 9170 with rice and cain with no windows over a NEW 45/4786 any day of the week. My feelings are well known on the abortion that is a 4586.
