Hi Thank you and yes I have tried them, they do have one but is out of a combine and so the frame bolts/holds may not match...

Your tractor is actually a late 1971 and I assume it has the higher manifold on the starter side,longer shifter,and probably dimmer switch on deck.They also sell a little better than the 69/70.Getting to your question on a motor, a combine motor might be your best option and Tim S. can answer that correctly.I think I know but want to be correct.Just place an ad in classified on this forum might do it but make sure you get a good one that will fit.

Rebuild the engine you have- by the time you find a motor and dink around getting it put in the tractor, you could of already had the orginal motor rebuilt. Yes its probably going to be more $$$ but probably only 1/3 more and you'll have a brand new ready to go motor instead of a 75% wore out combine motor cobled into your 4000, which you've now reduced its resale on.

Amen if a combine engine is installed it will reduce the value of a highly sought after model.

That is the correct decision as there were only about 8000+ made.A real nice 6000 hr. 72 sold in a consignment sale Sat for $15500 and last year a 72 powershift brought $35K.Combine motors are fine but not in a collector tractor.I think the late 105 combine motor might have been real close.
