this is a new topic that i started in a different topic.

 http://gardentractor...john-deere-318/

so what i have is a 318 with a kohler k301 in it, which seems under powered. so what i am attempting to do is put a continental f 206 straight six into it, now this motor doesn't run yet but will soon  the motor is a crank start, if i could find a fly wheel and a starter i could switch it. 

 

so far i know i will have to extend the frame some, exact measurement isn't known at the moment.

when i get this running and driving i will hock up the pump and get the blower working to see how good it works. 005 - Copy (2).JPG 006 - Copy.JPG 007 - Copy.JPG 012 - Copy (2).JPG 016 - Copy (2).JPG

for sitting for who knows how long it is actually really clean and tight on the inside

Won't that be to heavy for the type of front axle on the 318?

 

Will be interesting to see the progression on your build. Good luck :thumbs:

The axle should hold up just fine.

Unless you hit a chuck hole at full speed.

Power steering is a great feature of a 318.

I would sell (or trade) that engine for a 2 cylinder onan or briggs but if not it would be a neat repower

There is a guy on weekendfreedommachines that does odd builds like this.If someone else can remember his name maybe they can chime in.I figured if you need help with something maybe he could offer some advise.He has done a boat motor and a couple other things.I like custom builds.That poor 318 needs some muscle.LOL.

I am pretty sure you are talking of Bill Schwab who is in the Cincinnati area.  I forget his user name over there.

If you plan to drive the hydro off the flywheel end, it will be turning the wrong direction of rotation.  To do this, you just rotate the charge pump 180 degrees, and you are supposed to take the pump apart & put slots in the valve plate opposite of where they are factory.  Some don't do the slot thing & still have good results.  Driven off the pulley end, it requires no changes at all to the hydro.
