When I read the this I was hoping you got the diesel from a LUV. I am looking for one for a tractor build.

got the key switch wired ordered a carb kit made radiator mounts and got the lower hose on, now i have to buy stuff to make the upper radiator hose, you get some strange looks when you go in to the parts store and ask for 6 feet of radiator hose

we will try this for the video <iframe src="https://www.facebook...524977020899658" width="568" height="320" frameborder="0"></iframe>

The video says it is unavailable.  Is it on youtube or just facebook?

 

The easiest way to do a video is upload to youtube and link it here.

Exactly what I had in mind for the 1982 317 I just bought. But maybe a little smaller motor like a 4 cy datsun or smaller.

 

What are the major problems you ran into with the build?

no major problems except the rotation of the hydro if you look close the engine is in backwards from it not spinning the right direction. one thing that i made sure is that i reinforced where the frame was extended.

Is there a reason you decided on that engine over some of the smaller 4 cy engines? Mine being a 317 instead of 318 make very much difference. Framewise I mean?

the reason for this engine was that it was free. and i dont think that there is much difference in the frame between the 2, in fact there is some one that put a v6 from a Buick in a 317

I understand free. You are doing a great job. Can't wait to see it completly finished
