806 diesel farmall

Tyler Does anyone know how to turn up the horsepower on an 806 diesel Farmall?
Hugh MacKay Tyler: If you have a good working 806 that is cranking 90 hp, it may do that for a lot of years, that is what it was engineered for. You can probably double that if tractor pulling, as pulling tractors don't generally clock up many hours. You try loading her down long days farming and your 40+ year old 806 will be toast in two years.

Been there and done that, cranked a new 560 dieel up to 90 hp in 1963, and worked it that way. 11,000 hours and 17 years later we trucked it off to the scrapyard with two pistons hanging over the frame rail.
