So now you have me thinking that a 4BT transplant into the O-6/ODS6 parts tractor sitting out back is a good idea.

Finally had some time to finish the hoods with a couple coats of 2150 red. Not perfect but I'll let them harden for a couple months and then shoot them again. 

I was having trouble with starting in cold weather so I added a ether assist kit available from case Ih. Dealer had one in stock. I wired it to the factory dash button that was for a horn. Works perfectly. I mounted the canister behind the front grill by drilling and tapping two holes. 

All the wiring is finished, LED lights work great as always, oil pressure gauge fitted into the old glow plug gauge housing.

Ed had some weight brackets that were made to mount on each side, with a pair of steps for each side also, with KM steps on the main side, I had to move the weight brackets forward and built a support frame to go between the two.

I picked up everything used to put a two piece straight drawbar on this Tractor too. Just something I wanted to add because pulling with the fast hitch was always sloppy even when mounted in ridged position. 

I love how this tractor turned out. Thanks you to everyone for the compliments. Please is you have any questions, ask away, I want to help anyone I can. This can be a very nice project if you take the time.

Great Job!

 1) Pulling Tractor ? I assume with weight brackets...

2) Is horn button/Ether button a concern for accidental E -shot @ wrong time ?

Again Very Nice work!

I plan on exhaust temp, boost, and fuel pressure for the 66 series panel, once I get some sheet metal fabbed up to cover the rear and make it flow like it should be there.

As far as what it is next to a 282 or German diesel, it would walk all over them, it's double the horse power now, our guess is 160. Still have some pump tweaking to do then maybe get it on the Dyno.

We have two local pulls I'd like to take it to. Not getting into major pulling. Maybe two or three hooks a year. I have a chassis decal set on the shelf that includes the "ether assist" decal for that switch. I'm the only one that knows it used to be the horn button.

Again thank you all for the compliments. This was a very meaningful build for me since the tractor was in the family since brand new and I have no plans of it ever leaving.

Interesting read I love the new look of that 7. That would be a lot of fun to use to work in the field.

A little update on this project. I worked closely with Ed Leaman with this project, he has found a local shop to make the reduction adapters for the Cummins/Case IH Mechanical tach drive that will make the tach correct. I've been getting a lot of questions about that so they are available from Ed. We also added his canopy which I came to love and isn't noisey like i was afraid of. Any questions on this build please let me know or contact Ed for tach adapters!

Great looking 706. I'm curious about these Cummins swaps though; What are you using for a governor or isn't one needed?

 

I've heard guys talk about having to do some governor work, but I didn't do a thing to the pump except have it rebuilt.  The tractor has been worked and I didn't notice anything different.  

I'll work on getting a video posted of it running sometime.

Alex,  You certainly have made me proud tonight. Is the first time I caught up with and read through this thread.  You have done a great job on that tractor, I would like to come over and run it some time. You are the best infomercial  we have out there and I didn't even realize it.

Thanks

ed
