Sorry for the wait. Been busy with alot other stuff. I have some pictures recently taken of the John Deere 316 diesel repower.

More stuff to do. Electrical wiring from the diesel electrics to the JD dash. Relocating the air filter assembly to the other side of the engine. Re-configuration of the exhaust from original position. The engine hood and the muffler, a major interference.To a Cub Cadet Kohler K321 muffler in a veritcle position, facing downwards. Rewiring and mounting of the rear tail lights. Re-uphostering the seat with new fabric and foam. And painting.

  The engine was solid mounted in the engine bay with a 1/8 inch cord rubber gasket. The driveshaft was fabricated using an adapter plate attached to the flywheel. And mounting a stub adapter to the plate, followed by a new u-joint assembly. Welded to the rear half of the drive shaft assembly. The two new fuel lines were rounted to the twin ports on the JD fuel tank. A new longer throttle cable installed. A used front electric PTO unit from a JD Onan 18 hp engine. Bolted to same engine bolt mounts and drive shaft dimensions and location on the diesel engine. The only modifaction required, was the installation of four spacer blocks. Which, I still can not beleive of the perfect match.

 Please excuse the mess in the garage. Between my projects and my daughters rebuilding of three bicycles. She busy herself when time premitts, as a bike mechanic.

 Now the tractor, is running up and down the country road, super strong. And the diesel engine reads Deutz Ruggerini MD 151 ( pre 1999). As best as I can tell is the same as the now Kohler Lombardini 330-225DL diesel engine.

Very nice looking conversion you are doing there. Are you going to add power steering?
