Picked up the 2 lombardini engines today. One is complete including wiring harness and the other is only missing the starter and wiring harness. Not sure what they will be going into yet, I am thinking one in the D160 and the other in the 1855 maybe. Not sure if I need to keep one as a spare because I will probably never get a deal like this again.

 

On to the Pics.

Where's the output shaft??  Guess it runs off flywheel side with a shaft then?  What these from?  Struck that makes crawlers offered these but just for short time. Never did ever see one in person. They out of GT's?  Think I see a dash and shaft there?

Grumpy, output shaft runs off the Flywheel side for this app. The other end can be used too. These came from a allis 920 GT.

I will post a vid of the walk around in a new thread.

Yes, they were marketed as a 18.5...the Lomardini spec sheet calls them a 15hp, and there are numerous tales of these showing 30+hp from the guys that pull with them.  Lots of folks say it's an easy, 5000hr engine.

 

The only thing I've had in the barn that seemed to have the grunt of this Lombardini, is a CH25...and even then, I feel like the Command pulls down easier than the Lombardini.  You don't want to have to buy parts for them though...everything is big $$.  Even the air filter is something crazy like $100.  Heaven forbid you need an electrical component.  There's a solid market for blown engines out there, just for the bits and pieces.

A great find. To repower your 1855 would be awsome. I am enjoying the sound of my Lombardini in the JD 316. Sounds like a small Detroit. Loves the rpm too. Have you test run them yet? So for I am using an oil filter from CarQuest, and an air filter from Brigg&Stat. With 10w30 diesel oil.

Nope, Havent run them yet. I have decided to put one in the Snapper 1650. Steel has been ordered for the frame stretch. The K341 thats was in it did not get along with me so Decided that the deisel would be better. Plus I like the Snapper/MF controls and layout much better than the wheel horse. Hopefully I will start on this next weekend.
