  1. James, I sent you a pm. Let me know if you get it. Thanks
  2. Do you have any pictures? Where are you located?
  3. James, what type of planter is behind the cub? Was it made by IH?

    Thanks farmallfan. Lots of good info there. I think I am going to attempt the swap. There are enough old school buses around, I should be able to find plenty of parts.

    Ford 6.0 diesel

    So I ended up passing on the f550 and found a nice 2000 IH 4700. I drove it home yesterday and it seems like one heck of a truck. I am very happy with it. I bought it knowing it had trans issues. It has a dt466e with Allison at545. The trans has no reverse or 4th gear so it was a slow ride home. I have read the 545 is the weakest of the Allison's. I am looking at swapping to a mt643. Has anyone done this before?

    Ford 6.0 diesel

    Wow! I didn't realize this would be such a hot topic. There are lots of differences of opinion here but I can appreciate all responses. If I get this truck it will die here so resale is not an issue. I don't mind spending some money on it to make it good. I know there are no guarantees, but it is good to hear from those of you who have had good luck with them. It sounds like the egr is the killer. How much will that cost to remedy?

    It is a 2004 model, not sure of build date.

    Thanks for all the great comments. Is there any way to tell if updates have been done or should I just assume they haven't been? This truck looks really clean and well maintained. It is a regular cab 2wd XL with a 16' box. What do you guys think it is worth?

    Ford 6.0 diesel

    I'm looking at a Ford f550 6.0 diesel with 85000 miles. It has detailed maintenance history since 60000 but nothing before that. I have heard horror stories about these motors. Are there any good ones out there? Just looking for thoughts/opinions

    I see some of these European tractors listed in the Pennsylvania area. Anything to watch out for or dealers to stay away from?

    We raise vegetable crops is the reason for the creeper. What are the differences in the European tractors? I have seen some advertised. Are there any negatives to these tractors?

    I guess I will have to be on the lookout for a mx. Which one is best in the mx lineup? Mx 100, 110, 120. Were these tractors available with a creeper gear?

    Thanks for the input guys. Maybe I should pass on this one. What, in your opinion would be the next best option to a 51 or 52 series tractor?

    5130 synchro

    I'm looking at a 5130 2wd cab tractor with synchro trans. Has about 7500 hrs. Pretty decent shape. Is the synchro trans ok? How much does it devalue the tractor vs power shift?

    Thanks CIHTECH. I may have more questions when I get it split. I've not been into one of these before. I appreciate your expert advice.
