Well pork would bring a bush hog to mind.  But you've already done Hogzilla.  Is there another Hog worth putting a diesel in?

A winner!  Well, for the make anyway.  Now for the model, that's still a guessing game for you guys.

I figured it was a bush hog when you said pork but I thought the picture was funnier.

So now that she is here, I will tell the tale.  Scott graciously offered me one of his HD-12's & even delivered it to me at my plow day event yesterday!  He kept the rear pto & anything he needed to make his better HD-12 a complete unit, then made me a good deal on the rest of her.  He knew it would make a perfect candidate for one of these diesel engines, and he was dead-on!  I did some measuring, and even the driveshaft will be the perfect length as-is!  One of the Honda Civic radiators on ebay will be perfect as well.  Even the battery box can stay right where it is!

  Sure she's rough, but what a beauty she is to me!  Scott is one fine individual I'll tell ya!  He knew I'd want it, and came at a good time, as I just sold a couple tractors at my event so I had the money to do it.  Here's pics of the tractor & the engine that will go into it.

  THANK YOU SCOTT!

I saw it in person as Scott came through.  I think you are the perfect person to get that tractor back into running condition!

width wise, at the bottom between the rails at the front, where the radiator will go, it measures 14 5/8",  The radiator from as Honda car is 14 1/2" wide overall, so perfect!  A new radiator is just $80 delivered too.  My radiators with the APU's are too tall.  Should fit so well people who don't know Hogs would think they came that way.

Tonight I did some work on the engine with the damaged valve.  Turned out the valve wasn't bent, just cocked over slightly due to the gouge in the valve face.  I chucked it in my lathe, then zip tied my dremel with fine stone to the tool post.  Got the angle set, then went to work cutting the face down till the gouge was gone.  Turned out pretty good.  After lapping, all looked good.

I assembled everything & fired her up.  Had to use Copper Kote on the head gasket, and I don't think it's holding good, but she still fired right up!   Sounds better than before, but could only run a short time as I don't even have the water pump installed yet.  A little smoke came from the water jacket holes, so I know the gasket is leaking.  I'll pop the valve cover off tomorrow & retorque the head & see if it helps.  But if all I need is a gasket, then it'll be cheap enough.  Bet this gasket will be high for what it is though.
