Anyone try to shoe-in a Kubota 2 cyl instead of th

Recommended Posts

My Lombardini is toast... Still runs (if I can get the starter to engage) but it's using at least a quart of oil per gallon of diesel fuel... probably closer to 2 quarts. It needs a major rebuild plus a new starter. The starters price alone makes it prohibitive ($1000... OUCH) I found a 2 cyl Kubota engine I think I gan get in there with a bit of modification to the front of the frame (lengthen about 3") as well as a similar treatment to the sheetmetal of the hood... It'll look a bit odd but should work ok. The bulk of this modification is to accomodate the radiator, otherwise the engine would probably fit fine. I'll let you know how it goes... first I have to get the engine. I have a couple potential sources. I've lined one up on ebay if I can get it cheap enough. Anyone know of any potential problems I may have missed or have any info I should know? Chuck

Chuck, Do you want to sell your lombardini? I would like one for parts or fix up, I like them. I just put all new bearings, rings, valve guides and injecters in mine and it only cost $260. my starter is doing the same thing yours is and I just ordered the cluch & gear assembly for $52 from a starter and alternater shop. Not a total rebuild but it runs like new and it cost less than a murray motor. This is where I got the parts, an Amish place in PA Good Luck Lawrence Hoover Diesel Service 255 Mascot Rd Ronks, PA 17572 phone 717-656-3322 fax 717-656-4022

Doesn't look good for me getting a kubota power plant I can afford... Looks like I'll be parting this beast out. Everything is in fantastic condition except the powerplant. I'm leaning towards buying a small kubota with a bucket loader, etc.... I'll miss the extrordinary cut but not the ringing in my ears or the blue fog that follows me around. Chuck

Chuck, I have a Kubota B2400 with a 60" deck. This tractor does a great job of mowing, almost (but not quit) as good as the Simplicity/AC tractors. It is great with a loader. Mike S.

Surplus Center (1-800-488-3407) has a Yanmar 23.7 Hp Diesel for $2195.00 and a 25.4 Hp Isuzu Diesel for $2395.00. Don't know if these are anywhere near your price range. Rod H.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
