Ok, moving on. I'm looking into what fuel delivery system I want to run.
Option A, The faucet fuel pump seems to do a good job with the k532, but I'm looking into a decent pump. I'm going to install a smaller canister screw on filter base. I have done this with my truck, with a 2 micro and then a 5. Granted these smaller engines are a little more forgiving than my cummins.
I will run a 5 or 8 micron screw on filter and after market pump.
So, I'm guessing the system will provide at least 6psi supply to the inj. pump.

Option B

Use the standard faucet pump, and a regular style inline fuel filter

What's you thoughts?

I'm out of my league on this, Ryan... I'm not sure what kind of pressure the injection pump needs--I fed mine by gravity when I had the K482... I would for sure put a fuel/water separator on it, though.

 

BTW, did you see the JD400 PTO on the Spokane Craig's List for $400.  I posted it under "Ebay, Craig's List, finds"

I did see your post. I was lucky enough when I bought my 400, it came with the pto, tiller and 4 way blade. I won't tell you how much, because it wasn't too much :)

By having the 35 a tiller and the pto, I really wanted to have some umph behind those teeth, hence the repower.


I'm gearing up this weekend to hopefully pull it out(532) and start putting the new heart back in.

Cool!!  I should be able to help out at least part of the time if you want an extra hand.  What day you going to start?

You're going to have to let me in on some of your acquisition skills, there, Ryan!!  I don't mean let me get something you want, but let me know if you come across something I might want!!

Ok, was able to get something done for the 400.  I took my radiator that was 15"x13" screen face, and my fan that I picked up.

This is how it was looking before tonight.  It needs a decent shroud for the fan and control of air flow.

Later today, I took the plasma cutter and some 14 guage tin and made a good looking shroud.

And this is how it looked with the fan.

Finished product.

other than the welds not looking too hot (ran out of sheilding gas) , it mounted up nicely and has plenty of CFM through the radiator.    I cut the input of the radiator becaues it was at a 90 degree facing out.  I am going to braze it monday to a strait shot towards the engine.

Looking Good, Ryan!!  Now, we can get to work on the flywheel adapter.  If you'll measure the inside of yours, I 'll check to see if mine is the same... since at some time I'll need to do the same thing for mine.

Moving closer to the day!  I received three u joints from Baileynet.com, following a post on WFM about a two piece driveshaft.

 Started out with two 1" id u joints and one 3/4" id

Pressed the two apart

next, reassembly

finished, I now have two of the 1" by 3/4" ujoints.  Maybe use one for a wood chipper project.

You're getting there, Ryan!!!  Hopefully we can get the adapter turned next week and we can get past these preliminaries and actually start putting a  new engine in your JD400.

 

BTW, let me know what you want for the K532 you pull out...

 

Regards,

Continuing forward.  I ordered a hydro cooler from a 318, this way it will saddle the driveshaft and get rid of the boxy 400 stocked cooler.

IMG_5500-L.jpg

 

checking (roughly) the dimensions on the dash tower for the 400 and the 318 cooler is 9" across, and would fit inside.

IMG_5502-L.jpg

 

I do have a pile of "parts" ready to go into the 400.  Im really hopeing to start monday.
