Just wanted to share with you all good folks that there is a great repower diesel on eBay.  It looks to be a little long for most of our tractors, but I bet we could stretch the frames and be okay.  You might have to reinforce the front axle, but that can be done. 

 

But just think, this engine would never struggle plowing the garden!

I like it!  :thumbs:

Since I don't like shifting,  can I buy a Comet Centrifugal Clutch that'll bolt-up to the crank?    :deadhorse:

I was just watching this one the other day. I don't think I would stand anywhere near this thing running.

Too bad they don't ship to Canada! I wonder if it has too much torque for a sundstrand 15!

My son says that's about $27,500.00 to much. I knew it was from a boat when I saw the mounting system and the area it was in. Looks like a nice engine. Don't think it would fit any of my GTs. Son said it was to big for the 30' boat he is going to build.   Thanks for sharing.                                              Roger.

I see a standard starter ring gear and place to mount starter on side. What the heck voltage was something like that? Would think it might have to be another big engine to crank it???  Would think this item has little use to anyone other than an old ship and maybe even then is too antique to be usable as everyday rig??  Rebuilt???  Bet lots of money and special large tools for that, and rings/bearings and such!  Money pit! Going to set and go bad till scrapped. Would even cost money to get it to scrap yard, someone big enough to handle that size!  View from the Dark Side.

Some bigger shows have these, or stationary steam engines as running displays, Canandaigua has two running steam engines and one work in progress.

Plenty of power to hook that up, no doubt.

Panzer GT or Panzer tank?  :D

Yes, but you would have to hire Steve Austin to do it.

See, now we're talking!  I knew we would figure out a use for this rig!

A show in Richmond, VA has an 8 cylinder running a dynamo and a two cylinder.  The 8 cylinder is something else to see (and feel) run.  I could watch that thing all day.  You all don't know what you are missing until you stand next to something that big while the operator revs it up.  It is incredible...

 

They start the 8 cylinder on air: it'll turn and then hit each cylinder once, eight puffs of smoke in a row, then twice, and then suddenly take off and begin pounding the ground for yards around. 

 

The big two cylinder only hit on one cylinder for too long and shook hard enough that it jumped off its concrete pad while we were there.  It didn't slide far, but think about watch your small engine dance untied on the shop floor and then multiply that by 100...

 

I love huge heavy diesels.  :thumbs:
