Well it runs great. There you have it a 1962 Montgomery Ward squire made by Simplicity. Powered with a 10hp air cooled diesel.

At the request of another member, we moved this into the repower area so it gets attention it deserves.
I don't know how it got past me, other than the power equipment area is one I usually don't get to often.
Very nice repower. Thanks for taking the time to document.

Great work!  Diesel engines just make sense to me.  Where did you get that one?

Easiest way is to upload to youtube and post a link.

That is a cool swap!!! I would love to get my hands on a small diesel like that, I got plenty of projects it could go in.

FYI the hub I had made out of aluminum was $280.00 the motor was $630.00 and the miscellaneous was around $40.00 I think so far I have about 10 hours into the project.

Next I plan to relocate the air cleaner, fuel tank and muffler to accommodate the hood.
