Skyrydr2, how is the level of vibration with the diesel engine in the Ford versus the stock gas engine?

Very little, the kohler would beat the tin off at anything less than half throttle.

I've been able to see other pictures on Photobucket, so I'm still at a loss as to why I can't see yours...but then, I also have a problem with navigating the site... when I click on a button, a new page will open up, but then it will just hang up with a blank screen. I've changed my security setting to allow popups from the site, but it's still a problem.

I don't know what search engine you use but you might try Google Chrome. Another good option is FireFox.
I ran into Google Chrome through Craig's list. They recommended it as a faster way to search their site and my Son and I have used it as our only search engine ever since.

The latest Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 9.x) has created a rash of issues with our websites and web applications here at work. Both Chrome and Firefox appear far more stable in their latest versions.

While the latest version of Internet Explorer is supposed to have improved security features the Chrome and Firefox are generally viewed as more secure browsers overall.

I hear you! Those big singles are shakey for sure. Do you get a lot of movement in the engine at shutoff. I know my JD2320 with a 24hp yanmar and soft motor mounts hits the snubbers for the mounts at shutdown. That puts a lot of stress on the mounts.

Actually, it shuts down quite smoothly. I am really impressed at how this little fellow runs. It is so nice that I plan to do another one this winter for my father. He absolutely loves mine, and I'm getting tired of cleaning the drool off it! LOL.

My Kubota twin shakes a little on shutdown, but all 4 of my triples are smooth, running or shutting down.

On the 2320 the mounts are like 1.5" thick and softish. Thats probably why they move a lot when it shuts down. The engine is extremely smooth when running though. There is virtually no vibration at all.
Vibration could be a problem when changing engines and using the original mounts. Just wanted to know what your experience was. Thanks for the input folks.

Hello son. This is your long lost father here.... :bigrofl:


Actually, that sounds like the ultimate father's day present. Your dad is a lucky fellow!

Jimmy,

Any progress on working with your V-twin diesel engine? I just acquired a single cylinder 10 HP air cooled China diesel to begin a project but I am still very interested in the V-twin models also.

Boss,

I've not made any progress yet. Bought a Chinese two wheel walk behind tractor, and have been playing with it most of the time. I made a change on what I am going to put the Vtwin in. Found a D160 Wheel Horse that will be perfect for it. I keep thinking the JD 318 is a little light for that much HP. I also found a 6HP single cyl. Deutz that I want to do something with. I will be starting on the Vtwin comversion in a couple of weeks. Will keep you informed.

Jimmy

Forgot to tell you the Chinese tractor has a single cyl. diesel on it, the type that looks like a hit and miss from the 1920s. The whole thing weights 661 lbs. 6 speeds forward and 2 rev.. It's great power, noise, stinks like diesel, rattles, vibrates, allmost perfect.
