You read it correct, im going to put a 3 cy diesel into my 1975 JD 400. I rebuilt the K532 alomst a year to this date, and it only has 34 hrs on it. A fellow member UTSmitty sent me a heads up on a L3E for sale localy. Price was good, had a missing water plug, but after getting it running, I have been gathering parts via ebay, summit racing, Baleyney and grainge, parts are now all here.
I will post a spreadsheet of all the listings, est price and product for this build. I hope this will help others as the experienced chime in on my many questions that will be on thier way. This will be a transplant lasting, until Sept ( I hope)
Please replay to help build a decent thread to help others jump on the coal train
I think I will post each task will be posted on its own posting. I figure that will help break it down for others.
Enigne. Mitsubishi L3E, 1.0L displacement
For starters, two adapters had to be turned, one for the front and rear outputs. The 400 needs both, hydro drive for rear and manual engagement PTO for front. see pics
REAR PTO STUB (used a kohler 25 hp shaft) turned down
UTSmitty helping out, BTW
Final result, will cut keyway in for new driveshaft
