Boy your fast Daniel. I was thinking it must be some sort of soy bean or other bean harvester. Talk about wrong.

Yes that name does conjur up visual images of miniature combines. I thought the same thing until I saw pictures of a Bean Cutler.

money IS an issue. i did find a used yanmar 1 cyl on ebay....would that be a better choice? by the looks of the carrol streams, they must be a clone of the yanmar.

Jim: It does not seem as if there is a lot of common knowledge about these Chinese Diesels. There are some out there in use.

As I understand it you are right in them being a clone of the Yanmar Diesel?

There is a member who posted pictures and did a write up of a Chinese diesel installation in a Gravely walking tractor several months ago. I do not recall as to whether it was in the Gravely section or the Walking tractors section? But if you can find it you might be able to contact him with a PM and get his impression?

That should work great. Yanmar has a very good reputation.

We bought one of those China made Diesel Yammar clone generators off one of those tool trucks in a weak moment.

 

I have to say that it has held up well, it's got about 700hrs on it and is being used in our mine in the Dominican Republic to power our little office. Does very well on fuel and other then being loud, it does well.

 

Here is a short video of it running.

Before I had a Mill I cut half moon key ways with a Dremel tool with good results. Just keep the shaft cool and check the fit often.

This is an interesting subject, I have a new lombardini 315cc diesel I purchased a few years ago for a project that was never started. I have considered putting it in a tractor but at 6.6 Hp I don't know if it is big enough to power much. Does anyone know if it is large enough for a garden tractor?

A 6hp. diesel will probably do more work than you think. Especially if it is a long stroke.

If this info is correct my little diesel should do well on a tractor and in my world that would likely be a Case of some sort. Here is a little more info on the engine, 315 cc, 3.07" bore, and a 2.6" stroke. I really don't know if this is a good engine for tractor use but I do have a parts 444 and this might make a fun experiment.

And that is all it takes to get me going . I'm cleaning up a Yanmar diesel right now to put in a golf cart. I don't know why. Just because I thought it would be fun to do.
