I have a 440 john deere with a detroit 2-53 I may have to put in another engine. I was wondering if a 6v53 or a 3-53t turbo would take its place I am looking for a bit more power??????
Sky------Do't waste your time and getting more power in that 440 JD, the GM_Detroit engine was derated for a reason, because the final drive is too weak The engine was a special build with 35 MM injectors, no oil cooler, and a special water pump. Typical injectors for those industrial engine used 40 or 45 MM injectors, had an oil cooler and standard water pump .A non-turbo 3-53 would give at least 50% more power, a 6v53 would tie your tractor in knots!
