I recently brought home a Massey 14 with a dead/dying kohler k321

I recently found a kubota d722 from a reefer trailer that was put out of service, by a bad compressor for the cooking system. I got it free

I just need to go pick it up.

So, in my double period automotive shop class, I'm gonna set up the Massey and kubota on a hot date.

Anyone have ideas, opinions or concerns?

I know I'm gonna have to figure out where to stick the rad...

Well it looks like you picked a good engine for it, it runs the right RPMs 3600 and makes more power than you Kohler 14 does.


Good luck with the project. :thumbs:

I put the rad just in front of the dash on my Ford LGT and used a rad that I bought off of ebay, is for an austin mini.  Just make sure you have the rotation right on the motor.  The Kubotas are great motors and the Mf 14 will be and excellent platform.  Post lots of pictures and ask any questions.  Check out my build in the re-power section.  It should be very similar.   Have fun I will keep an eye on this one!

That engine is probably going to have an over sized oil pan that might be hard to get between the frame rails. As that engine is used in a lot of different applications a regular oil pan should be easy to come by. 

Should make you a really nice tractor when your done.

Will have to do some machining for an adapter between the engine and drive shaft.   Had one made for friend who did that same thing but a different tractor.  Cost $110 for the material and the machining but would bolt right to the flywheel and drive shaft would slide on a stub with key way on the adapter. .  Should work out well.
