I just received the latest flyer from Surplus Center and on page #3 they list a new 13.4hp Diesel for $995.95. These are two cylinder water cooled engines. They come with the starter and 40 amp alternator. This seems like an extremely good deal on a new diesel. I would think these should function very well on gasoline powered GT's up 15hp.

16x16x20", the radiator is 15" wide, 20" tall, and another 6" thick. Pretty manageable numbers there.

34 ci isnt that much bigger than my 28 ci kubota and the kubota is only 117lbs. That would be a good match for mine.

I'm only 311 miles and I think I would still pay the freight with the price of fuel now. On top of that I would be able to spend the day at home instead of on the road.
Are you ordering one Cat? It would be interesting to see a review on one of these.

No, but if I trip over money in the near future, I know where a motorless Simplicity 4040 is sitting. Seems this plant would be a good match for one of those early 16 hp units.

What an excellent engine for starting a project. Wish I had the spare money as well as the fabricating talents and resources to undertake a project worthy of one of these.

This would have been right at home in the dead 317 that was on the Lincoln CL until last night.

I know this thread is a few months old, but I just thought I'd mention that these engines are the fixed speed variety....
