Diesel Farmall M
Richie Gess, Ft. Atkinson, Wis., put a 65hp. 248 Perkins engine in his old International Farmall M. He says it's sized perfectly for the tractor and was easy to install.
"It was designed for a 175 Allis Chalmers tractor. The company was selling reject brand new engines with imperfections for 20 cents on the dollar. It fit between the frame perfectly. The only modification needed was to redrill the flywheel to a 6 bolt pattern and put a 7/16-in. spacer between the flywheel and crankshaft. The tractor is very economical on fuel and a real workhorse. I doubt if I'll ever retire it," says Gess.
