Sent you a PM
Once you find out exactly what the engine is then we can discuss upgrades.
One upgrade I do recommend no matter what is a set of dual vented valve covers and plugging the factory tappet cover vent.

If you have a New Holland or Case ag/industrial equipment dealer near by they can get then for you.
If interested I'll get you the part numbers.

Picked my #10 plate up on eBay for around $50 without the afc spring kit, got that from TST products $40

Presently I'm running AFC Live from Power Driven Diesel but haven't been able to get it completely tuned to work with my towing app like I want it.

Word of advice: Don't get carried away with a bunch of power mods at the beginning, that 215 pump as the potential to make good power with very few mods, i'd go with a #10 plate in the stock position and play with the star wheel and pre boost adjustments at first then work your way up with afc spring kits and governor springs.

Many have made several mods at the beginning and got lost trying to get the engine tuned properly, I did that myself and it took a while to understand what was needed.

I don't see a need for the heavier springs unless your using a exhaust brake or going to have 4,000 rpm gov spring.

With 4k gsk or an exhaust brake it's good to upgrade to heavier valve springs, even though not needed now it's a good time to swap the valve spring while the engines out.

Sorry I hadn't got back to you with those valve cover part numbers, been buzzy in the hay fields the last few days, I now know I can easily load 250 square bales on a 24 ft trailer deck.

Edit: I should have said the trailer would easily hold 250 square bales, it wore my 62 year old back side out loading them. The second load was just about more than I could handle.
Going to get the big round baler out tomorrow and roll hay in the cab tractor with the AC on.

Here ya go.
Check with you NH or Case dealer to see what kind of deal you can get
This is for one dual vented valve cover, if you want two like many of us use you'll need to double the amount of each item

Depending on shipping cost here'a another source.

Thats crazy how much hay that thing can tow. Australia really does suck.. i need to move to the states haha.

I ordered the fuel plate and Gov spring today. If valves spring upgrade is cheap insurance i will do it i think..
And exhaust brake will be a future plan. They sound great and well saves ya pads abit wouldnt they
