    Differences in 2+2s?

    Hi guys, interesting topic here, A couple years ago I did spend quite a bit of time looking into the "Super 70 / magnum powershift conversion. The parts info is available on the CIH website. The super 70 and Magnum have a bunch of quite different parts inside those transmissions to create the different drive ratios for the front axle. drive for the front comes off the pinion shaft ,and there are a bunch of different drop gears in there to creat the correct ratios................the part numbers confirm this, and sure enough all the super 70 gears are NLA( no longer available)☹️ Magnum also has the MFD clutch where the S70 does not...............another problem to deal with. S70 also has a different HYD pump setup. from what I found the only way to do this conversion would be to find (Good luck) both the S70 centre hinge, entire front half, internal MFD gears, and some custom work to eliminate the MFD clutch from the Magnum trans( Maybe a 2wd trans could work??).............this is no simple job by any means...............I think you would have to start with a complete S70 tractor and a Magnum trans............not impossible but......can you say cubic $$$$$$$$$$?????. I have looked closely at the original 2+2 series and the Super 70 and the only things I found in common were the 400 series engines, the basic shell of the cab, and some of the sheet metal.............these machines are Very different animals..............once again spending some time in the parts manuals will show all of this. Like me, a lot of you guys have been curious about doing this conversion , but sorry to say...I dont think this will happen anytime soon ☹️. I,m not trying to be a know it all and rain on the parade here guys , but being a mechanic/ machinest I have a reasonable eye for detail on this kind of stuff and as most of you mechanics and engineer type people know, there will be dozens of other little differences all through these machines. I hope this helps answer some of the questions that a lot of you guys had ( like I did). I spent quite a few hours looking in to this but feel free to check it out for yourselves and please correct me if I am wrong. I hope this helps Heath ,NZ
