I'm looking to buy a Kubota z400 2 cylinder diesel to put in a Massey Ferguson 16. Does anyone have dimensions of this engine with the radiator to see if it will fit?

Hi, new guy!  Couple guys on here working on similar re-do, check the Massey Forums.  Think they have little bigger engines. Believe one is lengthening the frame? How about some pix with Your story!

That is looking really good!  The MF14 and 16 are my favorite garden tractors and you just made the that one awesome.  You'll be very happy with that little diesel.  I put a d722 in a Ford lgt 165 and so far so good.  You got to love the noise they make.  Thank you for the posts.

I didn't see a fuel tank...  What are your plans for it?

Fuel tank is the last thing to make. I'd like to hide it under the seat but I'm afraid it will have to be too small of a tank. There was absolutely no fitting the engine in there with the original tank.

Beautiful workmanship. Think your really going to like your tractor when it is done.

Well everything is done and hooked up but the engine absolutely will not start! Filters are changed, fuel lines have been bled over and over inlcuding up to injectors. Even had injectors out and turned to see the spray pattern and it was good. Glow plugs could be seen working while injectors were out. It smokes like crazy cranking over and it's spinning plenty fast with a charger. It ran before starting the swap and I haven't messed with anything internal like timing. Any ideas?

Didn't happen to leave a rag in the intake did you?

No but that crossed my mind too. I took the whole intake off to make sure.

Just to play devils advocate, any chance the shaft and hydro are lugging it down just enough to not want to start?
