I'm doing a top end on a 318 Perkins right now, bought a hollow cylinder hydraulic ram for my sleeve puller. Dry sleeves are f-ing tight! Not sure how good it'd be in a rat rod with a 2200 rpm redline though. Mine's still in the Massey Ferguson.
I just went and dragged this big momma about 100 miles, thru 3 cities and a bunch of small towns. Sheriff saw me bounce it over a curb in Zanesville, Jack said he was laughing at me. (better than lighting me up) Stressful trip threading it thru some of the small town roads. Oh yeah and a max speed of about 45 mph (OK 55 in a few places as I got closer to home)
For those wondering, it's a basket wagon for small square bales. The baler pushes them up and in, when you get about 100 bales in it you pull up in front of the barn, pop the back open to drop em in a pile. So much better than 2 people on a flat wagon stacking, then unloading and stacking again in the barn.
I donít miss tossing bales one bit.
Huge mystery as I try to figure out what's been done by previous owner.
