One of my friends offered up a 4 cyl air cooled diesel engine off of a military tanker. The motor ran a big water pump that is on the tank/trailer of the semi.

 

I was wondering if this might be something to power a frankin tractor GT??  Any thoughts?

Deutz has made air cooled diesels for years.

Get it. That would be a cool engine but I wouldn't put it on a rare tractor. Put it on a large frame Bolens or a Power King. Good Luck, Rick

Yeah, Deutz, and once Deutz-Allis when joined with Allis-Chalmers.  All those were big tho, not sure on little engines? OR, military stuff just seems to have specs to follow, and Anyone can make stuff for them, even tho it is not the line they produce or such, so could be made by anyone who passed the tests and could produce enough of them.  That makes it hard for parts sometimes.

 The military uses a variety of small diesels now. I've seen Kubota's, Ferriman's, Onan's, Deutz's and Continental/Teledynes. They use White diesels in the old 10kw generators, so anything goes with military surplus.

This thing looks to be about the same size motor as a flat head 4 cyl, maybe a little longer. I was thinking it would be a really cool motor to put in a JD318 project I am messing with.

I love the sound of a clatering diesel. :rocker2:

I've worked on air cooled 22 kw Deutz generators when in the Air Force, really tough class C generators.

This thing is starting to sound like it has promise.  I hope to get it home sometime soon so I can start figuring out how to mount it up into one of the JD's. :D

Did it come off of a Army fuel tanker? If so it's probably a Onan, they were used on the 5000 gal fuel trailers.

Any motor that passed military trials is worth having some Wisconsin motors that I have seen come off military equipment have special shielding and are much stronger than their civilian counterparts. Some even have better pistons, rings and cranks also better valves and tighter tolerances. I'll take it if you don't want it! Should make a great project have fun!

Yes, that is what it is on right now.  I am waiting for them to remove the motor and all the controls, guages, ect that go with it.

 

 

No pics yet Kenny, it was dark and late at night after a wild hog hunt.
