    Posted: 11 Jul 2012 at 9:24pm
I recently purchased my first "numbered" Allis - a 185.  It has a turbo on it about the size of my fist, and spools up to a pronounced scream just off idle - with no load.  Its a retro-fit, but has been on the tractor since new in 1978.  The local dealer would install them for the customer.  The turbine housing has been HOT in its day and has some severe signs of heat stress.
 
My questions would be: what turbos were original to the 2900 series engines?  What are the specs for those?  And, what would be a good replacement?
 
I'd like to pull about 110hp out of this tractor for pto work - but will never get close to using that much on the drawbar.
 
I've done alot of things in life, but never messed with a turbocharger.  I need some Allis-related education in this area.

WD's just do it better.

Do any of you guys know about what boost pressure the stock turbo would put out?
