That's too bad about the engine, Brian.

Looks like you'll be going the distance on this one.

I can't wait to see what you round up for power, and make it

I know of a two cyl in a barn in KY...

Sorry about the engine Brian, still a darned nice tractor with lots of potential.

Got some time today to mess with the D-250 and it's going to need another engine. I tried to rotate it over and she's stuck hard. So I pulled the oil pan plug and about 2 quarts of water ran out it, then some oil. I am guessing that whoever had it before the guy I got it from had only used water in the engine and it froze enough to bust the engine. I will get ready to pull the engine out of it and find a Diesel to drop in it.




Sorry to hear this Brian, but I know you'd rather have a diesel in there anyway.  You need a 20+HP in that beast!  And there should be plenty room for a 3 cylinder.  And from what I can see, the shaft rotates to where you can put the engine face forward with flywheel in the back??  I think that looks much better, so hoping I'm seeing things right.

I don't know, it looks like the water pump is on the backside... Does anyone know why they ever started doing this (this being running the drivetrain off of the front of the inline engines)??? My Kubota isn't that way, it has a normal bell housing and clutch.
