My other deal fell through where I was going to get a 2 cylinder Perkins for partial payment on a job I was going to do. I took a two day job  at another place and when I was finishing up I saw an old APU out back. When I asked what they were going to do with it they told me to load it up and haul it off. It was running when they took it off the truck but they had not been able to resell it so it has a new home. Now to find a tractor to put it in. Free is good!

Yes it's an AC pump.  These APU's kept the semi cabs warm or cool, and had a generator to power everything.  This is the same as the 3 units I bought quite a while back.

Yeah that is the a/c compressor and it looks like it is brand new. I hope to sell it and the heat/cool unit to put a little cash in the project fund. I have a Cub 1050 I could put it in but wanted to put it back original.I measured my AC 416 and Cub 1811 and it would fit in either of those types pretty easy. A 14 or 16 Massey would be sweet. I guess it will depand on what comes along cheap. The other Perkins is still available and I might try to pick it up to resale if the funds come along. Losing my job kinda put a kink in my tractor fund.

Are you going to have to put that tall radiator in your tractor?

I measured it and it will fit in a 82 series Cub or 400 series Allis. I can get my radiator shop to cut it down if I have to.

Might be cheaper to just buy a new radiator.  A new aluminum Honda Civic radiator with electric fan is only $61 to your door HERE.  Your engine mounted fan pushes instead of pulling air, so if anything got into the fan, the radiator might get damaged, so this electric fan would solve that problem.

Really depends on what it goes in as to what I will do. The fan for the ac condensor still works so thought about adapting it. I knew about the engine fan from my days of working on these mounted on trucks. I hated having to work on them but always thought they would make great engine donors.

OK, not sure what this is. Looks like maybe could make a home-made tractor, using ALL that assembly for the hood and front, then have cab with heat and A/C then?? Might have to be a big Steam Engine looking tractor and stand up in it to drive with that size, ha! l always wonder how you guys get from the engine, to clutch, to driveshaft on these. Seems most units have offset drives and gear boxes that don't seem to be able to come off and still work a starter or such, or even have mounts then??  So, what is used for clutches and bellhousings?

I will probally make an adapter plate for clutch or driveshaft to bolt to. The flywheel side just has a two grove pulley bolted to it that drives the compressor and generator. The two repowers I have seen were driving the transmission only with no pto. I want to figure a mount for the pto. I have a near new pto off a JD on the shelf that should be easy to adapt.

Is that one of the Rigmaster's. Used to do a second job doing maintenance for a local diesel shop. They put a lot of those in.
