I finally have finished installing the Lambardini 25LD330/2 diesel engine into the JD 316 tractor. Re-routing the the air filter assemby, to the front of the engine. Fabricated a exhaust manifold to mount the new horizontal muffler. The air intake and the exhaust were mainly constructed, using black threaded pipe, screwed or welded. The electrical wiring has all been sorted out. Now what is left is fixing the engine cowling and installing Sylvannia H4351 2inch height headlight assemblies. The last bit of work will wait, to the milder spring weather.

Very nice job!! Is the engine soldi or iso mounted? I noticed the air filter is solid mounted, that's why I'm asking. The Yammars really flop around when starting a shutting off.

The engine is almost basically solid mounted. The Lombardini engine mounts rest on 1/8 inch Loctite rubber -cork material. When you rev the engine up, the frame has a certain amount torison flex.

 

The drive shaft , started out with the original lenght, shorten to accomondate the engine position. A short (Onan) stub drive shaft and a SKF universal joint installed along with an adapter plate was used at the engine end.

 

Maybe next year, I will look into power steering.

 

This year, I will start to paint different parts of the tractor. Replace neccessary parts to get the mule drive and 48 inch mower deck operational.

 

Later on this year,..start to build a Cat 0 3-point hitch. So the green tractor maybe oneday. Can field forough plow and rotortill beside the MF 1650. A dual team in motion.

If I may ask, where did you come across that engine and how much did you pay for it? I am after a similar one to replace my ailing Kohler in my 1969 JD 140.

A couple years ago, an ad for sale was places in Kijji. For used diesel engines, off of military diesel powered hydraulic packs. There was about 20 engines to choose from. All of them being 24 volt setups, except for two engines. I bought the only two of 12 volt engine set-ups. The price was resonable for running diesel engines. $700.00 for the pair. One of them is now running in the JD 316. The other will be powering my second 1650 MF garden tractor, The Massey has taken a year or two longer to finish, because of not being sure how I wanted the drive line assembly to be. The number of run hours on these engines is not known. But with 20 degree F. outside temperature, and with winter grade diesel fuel. 20-30 seconds of glow plug juice, they light up just fine.

BE AWARE Excessive cam wear can cause runaway i have a 3300 30hp with a worn out cam and it is uncontrolable after it starts and i don't have the 700.00 dollars for the cam and thats if it's still available /not including the injectors or the almost 100.00dolors for the oem shim kit to set the injectors up . your set up looks good and the engine looks newer than mine so you may never have a problem but just in case i would install a mechanical fuel shutoff to kill it if it should ever runaway good luck and remember, no good diesel goes unpunished :smilewink:

Thanks for the warning. I have check both or my diesl engines. And they both have the factory electrical fuel shut offs, and a separate mechanical manual fuel shut off.

I personally like diesel engines. I service and maintain two VW diesel Jettas.

Thank-you

A vehicle I've thought would be fun to own. My Son drove one for many miles and it survived his abuse.  :smilewink:
