To get ya back on track on an 8630, We'ved currently have owned one since new. And like so many, had to have a new motor at 800hrs. So, we went with the 50 series motor. And at 3500 hrs, we had to have it rebuilt. The 619 is a great motor....... if it's not bouncing around. There use to be alot of these motors out west running big pumps for 10,000 hrs without problems. But it's when the motor is bolted down solid in a tractor is when bad things happen. That's why the newer tractors have cushioned motor mounts. But I do know from experience that alot of hp can be made out of this motor if done right! Hope this helps.
