Drove the JB diesel to meangreen's tonight. Parked the diesel JB next to his John Deere 430. The JB is a couple inches longer, and front to back wheelbase is about 2" longer also, with my JB's wheelbase remaining stock. The 430's hood is a good 3" taller than the JB's hood. I thought the 430 was wider in the rear wheels, but they are the pretty much the same. Both are pretty large machines!

Those are some nice comparison shots! What are the HP ratings on the both of them? Are you gonna hook 'em up when you're all done putting the JB together?

The JD is a 20hp Yanmar, and I have a Kubota D1005 in mine, which in Kubota's site pages, it says it puts out net intermittent 26hp, gross intermittent 27.3hp, and the most important rating, which is 22.5hp continuous. Might just hook em just before I put the NOS differential & hydro under the JB. If I break something in this old diff, it won't upset me. Hooking them sure can tear things up sometimes.

Yeah, you're right! (Darn it!) Probably not worth the risk, but a video is required if it happens :D:D

Thanks for the sside by side comparison. I like to see different tractors together.
