I found a couple of Yanmar engines for a repower in the MF 1855 but I think they will be a little too big! Any help would be great. I will have to measure the engine bay in the morning. Both have been sitting for a year and a half or so,but we're both serviced before taken out of the trailers.

I put a Yanmar 3 cylinder, 3tn66 into my MF1655 and still had to stretch the front end by about 3 or 4 inches.  This 4 cylinder would require extensive mods and I think would end up making your tractor look & perform way out of proportion.  You really need to stay down to a 3 cylinder.  My 1655D also has a self built front end loader that I do heavy work with and I never need all the power this little 16hp diesel puts out.  A 3TNA72 is 22hp at 3600rpm and would have all the power you would ever need and fit much easier into your tractor.  I have this engine in my two John Deere F935's, and they mow a 72" path with ease.

I agree as well.  I just finished my repower, and the 3 cylinder was a tight squeeze.  I was able to plan out just about everything.  But still, stay with 3 cyl or less

Amen brother :thumbs:

 

My HDT1000 has a 22hp 3-cyl Mitsubishi diesel in it, and believe me, you don't need any more power than that.

Thanks guys,thats what I was thinking.Too much over kill. And I don't want to tear up the rearend or stretch the frame if need be. I want the original look when I'm done. I guess I will pass and keep looking for a 3cylinder.
