Not a tractor, but an 1966 1000A IHC pickup. Currently on jack stands with the front clip off and old bg241 engine and cast iron Borg Warner automatic trans out. Have a rebuilt 345 V8 and TF727 ready to put in. It's getting Power disc brakes in the front and power steering while we're at it. Hot and humid today or else the engine and trans would be hovering above the frame so the motor mounts could be worked out. Straight 6 is 670#, v8 is around 700#, TF727 is 160# and I don't have a weight on the cast iron BG trans yet but I suspect the v8/aluminum trans will actually weigh less than the straight six-cast iron trans we had in there.
350 Legend, Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Aww, Thanks Winchester!
