   I am considering putting a diesel into this Allis Chalmer's. The original Kohler K301 threw the connecting rod and damaged the crank. I think it would be pretty easy to put a diesel in. The PTO would be in the back so I wouldn't have any issues of trying to hook up the PTO clutch. Anybody done this before? What is the best diesel for the money?

Since you're talking "pretty easy", then you must be thinking air cooled diesel right?

Yea. I don't want to get too complicated. Just so I can say I have a diesel. :D

I'll have to let someone else answer that, as I have no working knowledge on the air cooled diesels.

Yeah same here. I guess you can try lombardini diesels. Me and dan are used to 2 or more cylinders and water cooled lol

The lombardini diesel will set you back big $ unless you can find a used one somewhere. The 10hp Chinese diesels you see out there are a clone of a Yanmar air cooled diesel. The quality varies. I've heard that the Launtop brand is good but in the end you get what you pay for.

The only air-cooled diesels I have are the Lister-Petters. I can't be of much help either.

If you decide to purchase this engine I hope you will keep us updated on how it works out for you.
