  2. German Diesel DT402

    Don't forget the 402 has a taller block deck height than all the others, so putting this crank into 358 would mean changing rods and or pistons Heath

  16. can anyone give me some info on this IH paperweight

    Reaper, I notice it says "forging" not casting or pour. Not sure if it makes any difference. Maybe they shut down the forging line/plant for engine parts about when the 300/400 series engines came on line at Melrose park ready for the 66 series??? purely a guess Heath ,Nz
  17. Ih gas v8 into 706

    Hi guys , I'm curious if anyone has put an IH gas v8 engine (345/392) into a 706 tractor??? seems to be plenty of "M" Farmalls out there with these engines fitted....what about 706 etc???? Any body keen to share some pictures of how some of these conversions have been done, particularly adaptor plate and flywheel set ups just curious, thanks Heath,NZ

  21. Seal for td9

    Hi everyone, a friend is trying to locate a torque converter seal for his td9... part no : 606293c91 (Possibly superceeded to "c92") it looks to Be some kind of high temp seal as it has something like a Viton/teflon seal material inside a steel casing. We are having a little trouble locating an alternative seal to do the job Any help greatly appreciated Heath, NZ
  22. Seal for td9

    Thanks Chris, will look into it
  23. Look at this cherry red manifold on this 1456

    That Ford engine is the Australian built 4.0 litre inline six As fitted to the "Falcon" range of cars. those things can make serious numbers with relatively minor modifications.
  24. Yes ,and the Gm LS series engines use 11mm head bolts and flywheel bolts The 3800 Buick uses a mixture of metric and imperial in the same engine
  25. 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 etc etc. ....no sense in having to buy two sets of everything .....no point in changing the size of the drive anyway....just more cost for the manufacturers
