I ran across this on YouTube, it has my interest peaked. Thoughts? Any other mods needed to do this?

I have always wanted to build a turbo diesel repower at some point. It really wouldn't be too bad. I would think though you would have to adjust the injection pump to accommodate the extra air.

You may also have to change pistons, but I'm not sure about that. I would love to do my Kubota diesel with a turbo !!

My wife's grandfather owns a wrecking yard so I was thinking I could do this for little or nothing getting a small (gt15?) Turbo from him. Just don't see much out there about turbo'd yanmars.

I know on full size Massey tractors, or at least our older ones....the cranks for turbo vs non-turbo are different.  The turbo versions have special hardened crankshafts to handle the extreme loads the turbo puts on them.  Plus turbo models have oil injectors to shoot oil to the undersides of the pistons to prevent piston melt-down from the increased heat.

The is a guy down in Florida that owns a company called DethMachineFab. At least it is something close to that. Anyways, he has taken a few Thermoking Refer units and put turbos on them and stuck them in turbo diesel bikes. I bet if you ask him through YouTube or his site, he would answer as many questions as you have. Also, if memory serves me right, I think he used to be a diesel mechanic.

That is my experience with Turbos, too. They are a whole different ball of wax than a straight diesel.

 

However, a small turbo shouldn't need all that.  I know a guy who bought one of those turbo conversion kits and dropped it on an old Oliver.  He uses that tractor for farming and has yet to have problems about 1000 hours later.
