Simple. Change the injectors, injector pump and the turbo to 5065 parts. I have a friend who did exactly that and his 5045 runs as good as my 5065. How much mowing do you have to do that you think you need a Batwing mower?
There is a bit of a back story here I should share with you. I ordered my 2012 5065 E in the spring of 2012. At the same time my friend was looking at new tractors. When I brought my tractor home he looked it over and drove it and liked it. We had a JD dealer which was going out of business about 20 miles north of us and they had a 5045E in stock they were willing to discount heavily to move it out. My friend made a deal with the dealer and bought the 5045E. After using the tractor a short while he decided he would like a little more horsepower as he was using it in his woods pulling logs, loading the bucket full with firewood and plowing his steep driveway.I personally don't know enough about this particular model to offer help. But I am sure there is a way, however you may come out dollars ahead by just trading up. Depending on where you are at, 5 Series are more plentiful used than subcompacts in some markets.
But I like the post above. If its not a computer controlled engine, swapping injectors, adding fuel pressure and turbos/intercoolers will work, think like those guys that do tractor pulls. Doesn't sound real practical for a field tractor to me though, I am pretty sure the old 70s and early 80s tractors had options for juicing them up, a 2012... I don't know.
No PcmI just did this to my 2002 F250 7.3. The $400 tuner made an amazing difference. I thought I could do it to the 5045E but do they not have a PCM you an reprogram?
The 2012 5045E most certainly is a Turbocharged engine.As stated above the 2012 has the traditional injector pump and no turbo. I've heard of people having their injector pump "turned up" ( not "tuned") and getting much better power out of it but I do NOT have any first hand experience with this. A shop that rebuilds injector pumps might be able to do this by adjusting the "fuel rate" like MO1 said above.
A lot of the different engines were made for import into different countries. Then you have the EPA sticking their noses in from time to time.I worked on/off in JD dealer parts dept from '65-'87. I can't imagine the added difficulty with all the different models of today. I have difficulty understanding the need for so many different models in the identical horsepower categories. After all there's only a limited number of ways one can change options
Correct but they also list engines for other countries as well. I have no idea what the difference is other than probably the emissions. Canada and Mexico might be different too..The photo I posted earlier showing 10 different engine configurations was for tractors sold in N America not the World.
I've spoken with him several times. Did I ask him about his tractor? NO. Now that you have reminded me I will make it a point to ask him. My apologies.Did you have a chance to speak with your friend?
Several but I keep forgetting to ask. (at least I'm honest)Hate to be a pain. Wondering if you had a chance.
