Hey Trav1s:

 

Sounds like a complicated project, putting that 3-cylinder diesel in a 318. It's not something I would ever try. I'm looking forward to following the process here on GTTalk.

I have help from a member of the church who has a great shop and amazing fab skills.  This will be fun in a twisted sort of way.

So the update is this - putting the engine beside the tractor makes me have questions, mostly about cooling.  The driveshaft drives off of the crank end of the engine with the radiator in the pedestal for the dash.  I have read of a 420 conversion that had a cooling problems and I am concerned that the space of the 318 will not allow for ample cooling even with significant modification.  At this point, I am leaning towards other more traditional repower options for the 318.

You can place the radiator up front but it takes long hoses. People have done it with good results.
