I sent my turbo out to G-Pop to get rebuild. I'm currently happy with what I got back. I will reply later if things change. I ordered a turbo from All State Ag Parts and it was not an original. I sent it back. Then I ordered one from Abilene and same thing. This rebuild even with shipping to and back cost $100 less than either of the other 2.
I bought this running and operational 856 Diesel in December from a guy in Monee, IL who told me he got it from somewhere in Indiana. He bought it with a 2250 loader on it and stripped the loader off to run a large round baler. The hour meter shows 6700 and change on it, but is currently not working so hours are unknown. The guy I bought it from had the PTO rebuilt and told me the engine had been overhauled before he bought it. That's all I know about its history. I have taken the Year-A-Round cab off, removed the 3 pt, and am having the pump opened up along with bigger injector tips for pulling it this summer. It needs to be rewired and the lights added back as the cab was wired in place of the factory wiring and some hydraulic leaks fixed. Barring any major failures this summer it'll get put on a plow in the fall and then get some forced induction over the winter. Model: 856 Farmall Diesel Year: 1968 Serial #: 14435 Options: T/A, Flat Top Fenders, Wide Front, 3 PT, Dual Hydraulics, Dual PTO, Tilt Wheel, Hydraulic Seat
