Last summer I picked up an Onan RV Genset with a Kubota 3 cyl diesel (662?) in it. The genset runs at 1800 rpm and the engine puts out about 11hp at that rpm, but about 16 hp at 3600 rpm.
I bought back my Bolens HT23, only it now has a daylight block (tough old bird still went up on my trailer running on one cylinder...)
I want to repower it with a diesel. I have a 21 hp 2 cyl Ruggerini air cooled diesel, but it smokes a little, and has the short European style taper on the output side of the crankshaft. I'm not real confident in being able to make a coupler for that taper to run the hydro.
The tractor has a FEL, and tiller, and I intend to put a 3 PH on it-- is the 16 hp Kubota enough engine for it???
All suggestions, recommendations are appreciated.
