Question John Deere Rebuild Kit?

What brand of overhaul kit is best for a John Deere 4440 rebuild? Deere or other? Price is not my first concern.

I would only use John Deere.

Part of that is becuase I do not know anyone who has ever used an aftermarket kit.

Wow missed this. I would go with the deere for sure I had a veteran JD mechanic tell me jd kits will start better in the winter. We tried an aftermarket kit in a 3020 once it was a pos and had to be torn down 2000hrs later.

94 Ford F-250, Reg cab, xlt, 12v cummins, 5 speed, 4:10s,
370's, edge jammer turbo, colt camshaft, tuned by Snap-on

99 Kenworth T800, C-12 cat power, 10 speed, 3:90 gears, ag200, ridewell tag, 24ft grain bed.

90 freightshaker, 3406a , 13 speed, was cheap

I would also go with the Deere parts. When its all said and done the Deere parts don't cost much more than the aftermarket stuff.

4440 PART

I use reliance parts on most of or deere engines we do and found all as good as deere . Come packaged with cylinder kits assembled just push pin though rod add clips like deere. I have found must of time if problem with engine after overhaul and good parts where used its human error. No matter what parts you use make sure you put new rod bolts and have bearing end of rods checked on these engines
