That is a cool build. I bet that would be fun at a plow day with a 2 or 3 bottom plow hooked up to it. Get er done.
LOL

That thing is wicked !!!! Looks like the engine out of an old B210 Datsun. I bet it has 60 or 70hp. Very cool build. :thumbs:

A B210 was my very first car. I can't remember if that's what the engine looked like, but I can tell you, it was
one tough motor. The stuff I did with that poor old car.

That fits in there some slick. Is it still using the Hydrive or is there another drive system in place?

Never would have thought of that big of a repower. Wonder if the sheet metal still fits?

Steve said he the previous owner did an incredible job with the sheet metal...so I bet it does or the custom hood does...

That would be one really nice machine if the owner would take the time to clean and paint it. I would have to put dual exhaust on it coming out the rear. That would sound great.

Looking forward to the pics with the hood mounted. I think it would still have looked good if the frame was lengthened to allow for a level engine. Would have taken at least 6", but mounting larger front rims/tires would balance the looks of her in stretch mode.

Hope we have more on this as I'm getting back to powering my 446 next weekend. From the first pic, it appears the radiator and oil cooler had to be set forward, which would require some hood/grill rework and the hydraulic pump driven directly off the flywheel?
Curious. That was a squeeze.

Awesome conversion!
How do you regulate engine speed without a governor?
