Rebuilt & Repowered IH 4786

10 posts in this topic

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

Looks like he does a nice job...not sure if $40K nice...but nice. That 950 Versy is a sharp tractor.

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

I get that but the guy out west only does lime green tractors, make mine a ST310 Panther III fully restored, big crome stack, turned up, with 23* deep tread Firestone radials... Maybe tinted windows to.

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.
