Recently I bought 2 982 one is IH built and the other is a CCCbuilt 982 with a low hr 19.9 Onan. Since I have got the diesel bug the yellow tractor will be tore down repainted and fitted with a diesel engine. I'm not sure what I want to go with yet. I have an opportunity to get a Yanmar out of a JD 455, but I'm not sure Here are a few pics

If you get a diesel you will have to run it off the crank pulley. The super cubs had to do that to prevent from flipping the carrier around since the engines run counter clockwise. If my information is correct the yanmar that's in those jd should be rated around 24hp or so.

I think ur right about the hp rating/yanmar. I have a 782d, and was going to switch everything over from that to the 982, but can bring myself to tearing the 782d apart. So I'm going this route and have 2 diesel GTs lol.

Yeah your better off leaving the 782d alone. If it runs and does what you ask of it no sense in taking it apart. And plus when your done building it itll be just like owning a super cub then just minus the power steering which I assume the rear can be plumbed to accept the power steering ports

Still tearing down the 982 almost done. Freaking steering wheel is being a pain in my u know what.uploadfromtaptalk1411082231127.jpg eb4f4431a1b33f4f85cf926741928ab3.jpgf547b4bf0cc4f500847fbf74dce9a402.jpg
