The “B” version of the John Deere tractor is the one with the power block, which is a larger cylinder case that allows for larger pistons. These modifications make the engine more powerful and allow the operator to pull a tillage implement in higher gears. This makes them ideal for pulling competitions and antique tractor pulling. A power block can easily make 40 horsepower. The power blocks are also a great addition to a working machine.
If you’re interested in purchasing a PowerBlock for your John Deere B tractor, you can look for used parts or an entire engine. The ‘B’ version of the power block is still available for sale, but the price is lower than a new block. If you’re looking for a newer version of the power block, you can buy individual components. If you’re looking to install a new PowerBlock, consider purchasing a complete block from Extreme Tractor Parts (ETP). The company will clean and bore the block for the pistons you’ll use, decking the head surface, and removing any broken bolts.
If you’re looking for a used tractor, consider buying a used ‘B’. This will ensure the durability of your new John Deere B power block, and the ability to use it in stock class competitions. The ‘B’ will help you build a stock-like machine. The B is an engine that is known for its durability and smoothness. The ‘B’ series has been in production for more than 80 years, and is still going strong.
If you are looking for a second-hand ‘B’ power block, you can look for a used unit. The PowerBlock sleeves are sold separately or as a pair. ETP also offers installation services. In addition to cleaning and honed sleeves, ETP will deck the head surface and remove any broken bolts. If you’re looking to upgrade the ‘B’ power block, ETP will also provide the pistons for your new ‘B’.
When you’re looking for a ‘B’ power block, make sure you know which class to run it in. For example, a ‘B’ power block will not allow you to run in the Stock class if it is in the ‘B’ style. If you want to run in the ‘C’ class, you’ll need a ‘C’ style tractor.
After selecting the PowerBlock for your ‘B’ tractor, you must decide which class it will run in. If you’re looking to run in a Stock class, a ‘B’ tractor with a ‘B’ PowerBlock will not be able to do that. You will need a stock-style powerblock if you plan to run in Stock classes.
