Has anyone seen this yet?I found this last night on YouTube.This guy has put a Kubota diesel engine in this 446.I can't tell how good the conversion is,but the hood is way too high.

I'm not a big fan of conversions like this.

As Maynard pointed out. he had to jack the hood about three inches. That looks Mickey Mouse.

The deck may go up and down but I don't see a drive belt on it . How' s he going to clear the snow if the engine no longer has a PTO clutch to spin up the deck?

Looks about like the Kubota Z482 engine like in my Kubota G4200 tractor. Twin cylinder, 12+hp. Pulls more like a 16hp gasoline or better.

I think I see a belt coming off the deck pulley, but even if the pto is fully functional, as said, it just doesn't look cool at all with the hood jacked up there like that. Whenever I repower, I strive for things to look as though it came factory that way. That looks nothing like factory at all.

Is there another video? I've done a stop motion of the vid above and used a magnifying glass. All I see is an empty pulley on that deck and no sign of a belt anywhere. What am I missing here?

Look closely just in front of the deck pulley....you can see the belt appearing as a dark line.
