It runs

the rad was leaking so i got it swapped out with no issues Thanks european auto parts my custom oil pan has a Drip appears to be coming from the bolt i think its that the cork gasket is not Compressed as you can see by the video it runs Strong i just ran water in it got it up to temp and the thermostat opened i did not try running it with the fan but after i shut it off i ran the fan quick and it cooled the rad down Quite a bit it took some work to blead the injectors as there is currently no fuel pump but that is some thing i need to order soon

Isn't it a great feeling when you finally get to start it up and it runs good!   :D   Sounds nice and seems to be smooth. 

Looks like your well on your way to having a driving tractor. I also like the idea that your were able to install the radiator 

in front. That in itself is somewhat unusual. Thanks for updating us.

Your build looks great! nice job on making it fit. I've got a Z500 in my kubota and cant speak highly enough about it. Fuel sipper very strong and reliable. My kubota is gravity fed to the injector pump and the one time I've run it out I tried and tried to get the fuel to pump through. Finally I checked my manual and found out that there is a bleeder screw right where the fuel line comes in (see pic). After I loosened that up and fuel started seeping out I closed it and it fired right up.

Couple of questions and I appologize if I missed this info:

How do you plan to extend the hood.

What are dimensions on that radiator? It looks plenty big to keep it cool.

Would an oil pan from a Z500 engine fit?

Thanks for the info on the bleeder screw ! this engine is the First Diesel i have owned ! and i am Very impressed on the Quality and set up !

The hood i will use 14-16 gauge metal and bend it with a pipe and vice then flange the edge and tig weld it ! 

the radiator is 15x16 (core size) and looks like a 2 core it has a Big fan that draws 6 amps

and the Z series Do exchange parts ... i called my local kubota dealer and inquired about a oil pan with no response so i made one .. cost me about 6 Bucks to make and bolt on ...also the old oil pan is off is any one is looking for one its the big one so yes the oil pan should fit .. as there is Many oil pan options ..

cheers

Ty

I have a Slight Problem ! the Pto shaft and pulley is Messed up !

IMG_0112.JPG see how there is no key way and its round ! the splines are Gone !

also the shaft is To short ! by 6" should i go to a Machine shop and get them to cut it with a index head and a horizontal mill ? or should i get some round stock 1 1/8 bore it out on the lathe to ( .7495) a heat/press fit then cut the old shaft to length so it fits in the larger round stock tig weld then machine it down ? and make the new housing ? with 1 7/8 Id pipe with caps in the end for bearings 6203-3/4 ?

iuno i think i might need a new pulley tho

Today consisted of removing the seat and tin as well as removing All the hydraulic lines and the drive shaft then i pulled the hydro to drain all the old fluid out i also rebuilt the lift Cylinder as it was Leaking BAD i cleaned every thing up and blasted some parts with paint then i pulled the hydro out and used the parts washer i got all the dirt and grunge off ... if you see the pictures you may notice it says 11 the hydro has been Up graded Before i got it ! honestly this tractor does not Add up the engine was replaced with a 1988 Tra 12d the dash has the pull type knob holes but i looks like some one used a mill or jigsaw with a file and put the lever style controls and the hydro is upgraded Also the steering wheel is newer and so is other stuff ... well i will keep pushing on .. tomorrow i plan to put the new bearing in and the hydro back in i will also put the fuel pump on the engine and maybe work on the second Hydraulic valve install
