I am going to build a spacer plate with iso mounts. The throttle and electrical will be easy. It was also brought to my attention that the torque would not be good for my hi - low trans. I am currently rebuilding a trans to use.

I am excited about this project. I am debating on a stack, just for fun.

I pulled the old adjustable pulley off and installed the original pulley. I then mocked up the engine. I need to build a custom 1/4 plate to mount the engine. My goal is not to modify or cut. I will use my wood working skills to make a template. I will mount the battery under the seat,and hide it. I don't want a stack yet so not an issue.

I still need to do wiring, throttle cable, mount the battery, adjust clutch, and put brake material on the pulley stop. I am almost ready to mow, just need to find a timed belt. Diesels do shake. One could almost get motion sickness lol

Thanks, I am pleased with it. It's 100 percent reversible. Which is a bonus. I am looking forward to mowing season with my collection of toys, I mean equipment......

The steering wheel was broken in shipping. It's a peta to get the steering wheel removed. I might go get it welded.

I have been avoiding this, but I need to raise the engine. This weekend I will start doing that. Doing that also means I need to cut the hood. Not terribly since the hood been beat up an drilled before i got it

I would really like to do a diesel repower like this someday, just need to find a good deal on an engine. While it never may actually be practical, it is definitely super cool to a diesel nut like me. Paying what they typically want for a small diesel engine is the most difficult part.

 

Why is it that you need to raise the engine?

Technically I dont. I can loose the original pulley and just add a 5/8 drive pulley and 1/2 pulley for the mower dexk. Actually I might do that. It would be easier
