We will all know a lot more about them if you just order one. Come on Smitty, do it for your friends on GTT!  Please  :D

I'm calling tomorrow about a JD420 that needs an engine. I don't want to make you feel bad but please  :worshippy1:

Well, $1,500 is out of the budget right now, seeing as I had to pay the jolly fat man in the red suit... However, I have a good chance of picking up some extra cash working part time as a music teacher-- plan to put my earnings into a fund for either a diesel repower or a diesel tractor.

 

Here's the link to the engine:

BTW, I have an Onan P218 18 hp engine that would probably fit that JD420 pretty well--I've started it, but it needs to have the carb cleaned out--let me know if you're interested.

I've been thinking about a China diesel in my Cub 70. Your eBay auction is these guys: a1biofuel.net

 

I've been watching them for awhile. I'd thought of using the 10hp version which seems to be the most common but should give a good power boost over the 7hp stock.

 

Then they bring along the 13hp to tempt me. Its a lot more money though.

I passed on JD as another guy offered me a Melroe 444 Skid steer for $500. Needs a little work and I hated to pass that up. This has an Onan in it also and I may take it out and replace it with a low hour 20hp. Kohler that I have on hand.
