Anybody remember the old JD roundback 105. JD used a 248 gas engine wrapped up to 3,000 rpms to get the hp. Heard they weren't all that reliable. I ran across a 105 last week. Somebody morphed a chevy 327 into it. Owner told me JD had a conversion kit to do this. Any truth to that?? I was thinking maybe a dealer did it. I have heard of other 105s with chevy engines and I assumed they were also roundbacks. The pictures of the 105 am talking about are farther down the page.

Haven't seen a chevy, but I saw one the other day that had a 413 Chylser and it looked like it may have been some kind of kit, because the adapter from the drive to the engine wasn't cobbled a bit.

From what I have read the first 248"s were very unreliable. The proto-types had major troubles but Dubuque engineers felt they could make the production models right (wrong of course). Understand that the 248"s were speeded up and a speed reduction unit was used so the separator drive pulleys could be shared in common with the 55 & 95.

Never heard of a GM engine adaptor kit for a 105. One never knows I guess.

I just saw an ad for a 105 for sale in Maryland in Green Magazine. Hope it finds a nice home but its too big for my little old hobby farm.

I was the parts manager at a John Deere dealership during the 105 era. I am sure Deere never made a conversion package for the Chevy engine. If there was something to replace the 248 engine we would have used it. The 248 liked to throw rods through the side of the block. Roger

We have a 63 55 round back with the 248 diesel. It runs pretty smooth on the little combine and does not bog down easily. I have only shelled corn with this combine we have another for beans. I will say the engine is about the hardest starting diesel that I have ever had to deal with. This is even with glow plogs and a block heater. The electrical system is another nightmare that I have had to fight with but have not had many problemys in a while.
