Re: MTF's Machine of the Month for March 2017
Thank you for "taking me under your wing".
My main consern with the potential conversion is what size deisel would be comparable to my 18hp Twin Opposed Kohler?
I do understand that deisel engines "typically" have a slower 3200rpm compared to gas being 3600rpm, but I can install a "wee bit larger" pully for the output shaft as it would run my 54" mower deck (if my wife will allow me to sell my MINT 2008 Troy-Bilt Pony).
I really don't know anything regarding Deisel Engine Brands, so trying to compare prices on Craigslist is a bit challenging and "research only" at this point.
I did check out a couple of YouTube videos from a gentleman in Maine that "Mud Romps" his SS16 powered with a Single lung deisel and found it to be a bit overwelming, AND EXPENSIVE!!!
Hesitantly anticipating what is to come next... :-)
