here are some some pics of the pre fitment. It looks like its gunna fit like a glove. The only thing thats gunna be a little tricky is cutting and mounting an adapter to the output shaft.

The motor weighs about 150lbs... atleast thats what the shipping label said. I REALLY want to use the stock pto off the Onan if at all possible.

By the looks of things I'm not sure you can fit a stock PTO in there without lengthening the frame.
LOL pics are deceiving. I am going to have plenty of room.I need to cut the output shaft off. But once I do that the overall length is going to be almost exactly the same length as the ONAN

Have thought about how you are going to plumb up the exhaust system yet?Also the air cleaner will present some issues I think.:fing32:

Very interesting looking engine. What make and model is it? What was the original intended application for it?

I have a 10 HP China diesel that I am planning on putting in a 224 over the next month. It appears like your engine has a lower profile that the single cylinder diesel engine that I have. I don't think I am in any danger of fitting my diesel engine under the hood of my 224. Below is a picture of my engine. I have not had an opportunity to pull the old engine and test fit this yet.

quite cool. interested in engine make model and power as well. 2 cylinder air cooled diesels definitely look to be an easier swap.
Would love to see a video of it powering that blower! looks like a walk behind you converted?

2 things I noticed , 1: where is the blower shroud? That engine needs it to stay cool, looks like a Lombardi diesel to me, and if it is, it needs the blower housing or it will sieze up when it gets hot.
2; you may want to turn the idle up, as it shouldn't sound like its missing a beat, it can over fuel a cylinder doing that and crack a piston,or worse damage the crank or rods.
It should purr like a kitty.
Nice job ,and should make a super fine mill! I just love diesels ;)
