Can anyone here tell me anything about this engine? I'm looking for 'care and feeding" info, and any hints as to any weak points it may have.

What I know:
It's a 3-cyl, water cooled, 59.7 Cu. In., and is rated at 22 Hp. @3200 RPM.

That is the engine that Bolens put into the "export only" HDT1000. I just brought one home and am looking for as much info on the engine as I can get.

I'm especially interested in what oil and fuel filter it would use. The Bolens Large Frame Service Manual does have a little info on it, which is where I got the above specs, but the filters are all Bolens numbers.

I have a K3D in my Toro Groundsmaster, and its a great engine. It has alot of power, and runs the 72" deck with no problem. I buy my oil filter through Toro for it, but I can't remember the part no., at the moment. Sounds like a really great project. :thumbs: Here are a couple pics during the refurbish.

That doesn't look a whole lot like what I have in the HDT1000.

I'll get some pics tomorrow and post them here.

Matt looks like you put very much work in the toro ground master. It looks good.

That is a nice looking Toro. The creeper would have looked good that color also. :D
I run Shell Rotella 15-40 in all my diesels. I can't comment on your Mitsubishi but I have yet to find a diesel that this oil isn't compatible with. Looking forward to your photos.
