This past fall while my brother was plowing something happened to the engine in my 1850. When I returned to the farm I noticed he parked it in the shed with the plow raised, so I went in and started the tractor to lower the plow and immediately noticed the engine had a miss. Regardless of what went wrong I'm thinking it's time to do a complete overhaul (~5000 hrs.)
My question is should I perform a complete overhaul on the engine I have? or figure out what failed and just replace the parts I need. I've read on here it's popular to swap in an engine out of a combine, for the right price I would consider that also.
engine no. stamped by fuel pump - 354U64443
tractor ser. no. - 205-925-557
model no. - 385-22582
I really like this tractor so one way or another it will farm again.
Thank you

I was going to tell you it was late 1850 because it has the second methods of engine serial numbers. First thing I would do is determine why it misses. Then once you know that you can make a decision as to what to do. It may be a simple $50.00 dollar item to repair the miss. My 2 cents worth. J.

I agree, need to find out what happened. I just finished up some other projects so now I can get the shop ready for the 1850 as it is next on my list.

Post back her with a new thread when u find out what the issue is. 5000 hrs is not a huge amount of hours on a perkins if somewhat taken care of.

Had the same thing with my 1850 so i decided to overhaul it turned out that the head gasket had blown and actually the rest of the motor looked pretty good, but i overhauled it anyway
