chek the archives if you dont get much results.. that model was Leon Clausens brainchild,, you can read up about the Favored developement of the sc in FULL Steam Ahead,.. dad always said 'they were a poor horsepower tractor ,..get a DC.. or a VAC if you want some fightin power ' ,.. i have been around a few sc, they are dependable and kid friendly and simple and nimble to handle ,to me they always seemed to lay down too soon when the hard pull was needed ,governor or tining or something just never got the act together .. BUT ,,i had a TUF 44 SC that i practically give to my nephew ,and he really went to work on fixin it up ,. that one always had some umph ,,fella come by and bouht it for 1750 bucks ,,

If the engine still has the original 3-1/2" Pistons, install the 3-5/8" sleeves & pistons which we can still get, and also put the later Carburetor on.

how much more do you want? 5617 head is higher compression than the more common 5618 ,shaving the head isn't going to give any big power increases
