    Friend of mine owns a Federal, he swapped in a bone stock 5.9 Cummins.  Pretty sweet truck and it fit pretty good. I had him haul a tractor to a local show for me this summer.

    Here's a pic of his federal with my 856, and my Ford with the IH 806.



    Love the stepside bed on the Ford! We need more pictures of that rig!!

    Is there anyone who makes these?

    Would i need to find an m and w set up?

    Found a nice 686 I'd like to pull.

     Thanks guys!

    You probably need to "girdle" the rear end as the housing is near the end of it's limit with 70-80 horsepower.

    Do you guys know if a 310 is a cross flow head?

      If so what side is the exhaust on?

      Thank you guys.

    The exhaust is on the right side of the engine. It's a cross flow head.  Check with some of the construction equipment salvage yards. Some of the construction equipment used turboed 310s or 358s.

    Oh... fwiw.  I personally know fellas whom the 84 series made them buy JD.  And the cold start was #1 issue.  A little 2240 will start good always really.

    Troy just the opposite here. I had a friend who had a 20 or 2630 Deere. They liked the tractor but it would start in cold weather. They went to t. he Deere dealer and tried a 2640. It wouldn't start either. They went across town to the IH dealer a tried a 784. It started on right up and they bought it on the spot.

    I keep thinking that the back plate on a 544 with a 239 and a686 with the 310 would be the same but maybe the bolt pattern is different so then they are not the same. Hoped someone might have tried it and would know. Thinking this might be a good winter project so trying to put together a budget didn’t want to buy the back plate on speculation. Thanks for your input. 

    If you are looking to use a 544 backing plate make sure it's for a 544 FARMALL. The Farmall is based off of a 656 driveline, the utility is based off of a 504.

    Is it me, is it an illusion? Those rear tires look too big on that thing? The front wheels are only on 6 bolt hubs. No wedge locks on the rear wheels?

    Rick my 1026 came with 7.50 x 16  6 bolt fronts and 16.9 x 38 rear with clamp style rears. It's going to have 11 x 16  and 18.4 x 38s when I'm finished

  7. Hi clears always draw attention.  18440 Farmall 100s made. No idea of how many were hi clears. 66290 140 Farmalls were made with 2861 being hi clears. Obiously if it's a 100 hi clear it would be rarer. These numbers do not count the International versions of each model.

    I was thinking there should have been a show 20 years ago to celebrate 100th year of the founding of IH.

    Penfield 2002 was for the 100th anniversary. BEST show I've been to by far!
