The new tractor gets a homemade 42CrMo04 tube chassis, a original John Deere 8530 hood and is powered by a 7.6l turbocharged 6 cylinder JD 6466 engine with a JD 55 series cylinderhead on alcohol. The Intake and exhaust manifolds will be homemade. Also, the engine gets a MSD 8 Plus ignition and a Racepak IQ3 dash logger. Which type and size of turbocharger the tractor gets, isn´t sure at the moment (the max. size is 4,25").The new project gets a SCS reverser, the old ROP and the old rearaxle of the Popeye modified tractor. The rearaxle is a homemade axle with Franklin and Rockwell parts. The tyres are Firestone 24,5 x 32 10 ply with Midwest aluminium rims.
The first start of the new tractor isn´t known at the moment.
