maybe a diesel transplant in the works

Recommended Posts

wandering around the flea market today, saw a kubota z400 missing the alt and rad. not stuck, oil looked good. Looks like a winter project. Haggled a bit. Maybe I will get it up and running and put it in my allis or just get it running and sell. Looks like a perfect little motor for a transplant. These were in the G3200 tractors. As far as pics, this is all I took. Light enough that I was able to lift it into the truck myself but at home I chose to work smarter.

2 cylinder. It is a cute little bugger, about the size of the typical briggs 10hp. Displacement, unsure, but they run around 10-12 hp i guess. It has a pulley/flywheel and coupler opposite of fan to take care of driving/pto etc. That is nice as some of the smaller reefer diesels have no real ability to run anything except a small belt due to setup

better pic of the motor, not any bigger than a 5 gallon pail, bout the same size as my briggs 16, or even a bit smaller [IMG]http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j5/plastikosmd/9f06dd83.jpg[/IMG]

at the moment I only own a B12. It would take some work to get it into the b12. It appears I would have to elongate the frame 4" or so. My other thought it is to go up a size and consider a larger frame machine. I am quite familar with the "simplicity" of the B12 and have not worked on any of the other machines. That means I am unfamiliar with how shafts and belts run. This motor has crankshaft access at both ends. The end with the fan as a large coupler that can be altered/changed and a pulley. The back of the motor also has a pulley. This should give me plenty of options for drive and power
