Pretty much what the title suggests, you have three choices to build you dream tractor. You need to pick a frame/chassis/body, an engine, and a drive train.

Here is my wish list:

Body/chassis: Massey 1855
Motor: That Caterpillar diesel that hooligan posted
Transmission: Full hydro, I'm not familiar though with the different makes of trannys to say which one.

I thought it would be a fun little thread to see everyone would build.

As much as I like my MF1855 re-power project...I think for a dream GT I don't need 3 options.
JD already built it for me. JD430

I think a Bolens large frame with that Caterpillar diesel ,and hydro would also work nicely.

This is not my dream tractor but it's something I want to do.
Take a Massey MF7 or 8 Hydro lawn tractor, put a HH120 engine on it and mount a MF610 42" mower deck.
I think it would make a good grass cutter.

My little MF8 here has a HH100, It fit like a glove, the HH120 may be too big, but adding the bigger deck shouldn't be that hard

If the Tecumseh HH100 fit like a glove the HH120 should fit great also as I think they are identical except for bore size aren't they?

I have been building my dream tractor for at least 40 years but, so far, all the "building" has been in my head. It all started with a set of iron wheels from a Planet walk-behind tractor, that my dad acquired years ago. I'd like to find, or have someone make, a "cut down" a rear end. The engine would be a little, 4 cylinder Crosley. I have the engine, but it's stuck, so that part of the dream would be a big job. The transmission would be from the Crosley too. It would be nice to add a second transmission behind the first... sort of like an Economy/power King set up. The frame would have to be made up too.

It would be nice to see this pile of iron, that I've been collecting all these years, come together... maybe someday!

I agree with Todd, I don't think it gets much better than the JD 430! I will keep dreaming about em.

I have always wanted a 620/720 Allis Chalmers, 3cyl. Kubota Diesel, 2 speed Hydro. I love the looks of those tractors. Looks like a 190XLT to me and I thought that was one of the best looking tractors ever built.
