    No. The head had never come off and it did most probably need the valves doing by 5000 hours.

    Ive been looking at the spec for a 158, perkins 203 and square axle, wet brakes. It could have the best of both tractors shame there in france.
    i always thought 203 is actualy 4 cyl version of 152

    It could possibly have shared the pistons, conrods and the valves and a few minor parts with the 152, but it hardly shared the block or the crank or camshaft. Part of the same family maybe.

    Internal dimensions seem to be the same. ie 152 divided by 3 and times 4 (no of cyls) gives 202.6. The 6.305 as used in Allis Gleaner combines was another extension of the 152 and was another sweet runner.Think it was a successor of the P6. More useless information.

    More grist, from an export market (and probably no help to the O.P.)

    My 168 acquired a few years ago, history unknown. Engine good, Multipower requiring rebuild, tyres fair, tinwork rubbish. Roll bar fitted. About 3500 at the time (a laughing price.)

    Fitted with an Aus. made loader.

    Engine: A4.236
    Power assisted steering
    Multipower
    Transmission spacer fitted (no spacer between the sump and front axle housing)
    Auxiliary pump fitted
    Early version of linkage hydraulic control valve fitted
    Internal access hydraulic strainer fitted (bugger!)
    Standard PTO
    Wet brakes
    Removable lower link balls
    Front wheels: cast centres, 7.50.16
    Rear: cast centres, 18.4.28

    S.N. 253450 BEGH

    I understand the letters indicate options fitted, but I'm curious to know what each letter refers to.

    Well from that, Dr Watson, you can deduce that very few parts were common. In fact I listed the few previously. It is a nice family of engines. The ad3.152 is pretty well the best diesel engine of its era in its class. Probably the best off-road small diesel ever made anywhere even today in my opinion.

    I agree, that AD3.152 does take some beating. It's been a good engine for Perkins with thousands sold, and in use in many different applications.
