I bought 3 Perkins/Shubauru 2 cylinder diesels last week. Worked on one, and found it had stuck injection pump fuel pump shafts. Took it completely apart & actually got it back together & in working order! Fired it up tonight, and it would seem at this point that I have a good engine here. No smoke, no knocks, or any odd noises at all. Runs pretty smooth. Oil pressure is getting to the head, but I will pull the oil sender & install a gauge to be sure pressure is up to snuff. Has a radiator leak, and a hose clamp won't tighten, but no biggies. Tomorrow night I'll bring out an electric fan for the radiator to allow me to run her longer.
My plan is to put this into a garden tractor, but not made my mind up on what tractor exactly.
Here's a short video for proof!
