Interesting, but your gas mileage will be terrible on that!

That will be quite a beast of a tractor. I don't think I would go that fast or even above 20mph unless the steering and axles were nice and no slop what so ever.

If only the engine is changed, top speed will only be about 40% over stock. It just won't take as long to get to it.

Sounds dumb and dangerous. We'll be watching for your Obituary in future! (Just humor here guys, good or bad) About as bad as the fella gonna put the V-4 Wisconsin in his Power King last year. Duhhh!

There is no such thing as too much power! Check out some of the videos of the unlimited class pulling GTs! May not be practical for anything else, but it would look cool!!!!!

I don't like driving my Panzer as it is. I can't imagine a V8 in it.

Finally clicked this thread from boredom. I have to say 3 things about this.
1. You will need a new front axle, possibly off an EZ-GO golf cart or something.
2. You will need new tires as the factory ones are only rated for low speeds.
3. You are going to need a ROPS, a racing seat, and a 5 point harness. lol

A few years ago there was a kid at Fawn grove show and he had a small block chevy in a tube frame bolens, I said to him " it's a wonder the rear takes it- he said it doesn't i'm on my third rear " Are you kidding me ,they only have a bronze bull gear.
At least we know that chrysler rear in the panzer will handle a ford engine LOL.
