Looks good, the diesel looks like it was born there! Coming along very well, have to subscribe to this thread.
Ditto! This is great stuff. Nice work.This is going to be a thread to follow! Keep the camera handy, will ya?
The engine sits about 1/2" farther forward, so I had to trim the frame cut-out a bit, and trimmed the hood support.Looks like a fun project and that diesel fit in there very well. Did you need any mods to fit the engine in there? slkpk
I bought it at Princess Auto for $550 plus 5% tax.What does a 10 hp Diesel engine like that cost today ???
Absolutely, it will be getting a blast of green paint once everything is properly fitted and the risk of scratching it isn't a concern. :fing32:Impressive improvisational rebuild. I trust you will repaint the red cover green or yellow eventually?
I don't plan to, I'll just be keeping the lift cylinder. It would take serious hacking to make the pump/resi/valve unit work in the new configuration. I'll just buy some off the shelf components and make new brackets.Looks good Alberta :fing32: Are you planning on using the hydraulic lift on the new engine?
I had to raise the rockshaft 2" in order to raise the brake/clutch rod. Test fitting the cylinder shows everything will work as it did originally.I like it so far. Have you mocked up any of the hydraulic lift stuff. Forgive me if it was there. I am a little kid at heart and only like to look at pictures.
