I'll dig through the drop pile, never know what you'll find in it!

If you need to buy supplies let me know and I will throw some MOH-NAY your way!

I'll let you know what the steel will run as soon as I can get down to my supplier, probably tomorrow afternoon.

Ordered the remote cooler and oil filter mount that is necessary for this swap.  It will be here next week. 


I think my Lenten discipline for this year will be to get this swap completed and the tractor running... :bigrofl:

Not sure if that remote cooler will work "as is" but it was a very reasonable price.  I think it was removed from an engine at SEW when they put a repower kit together.  This one was cheaper than their others as it did not have an oil filter on it.

I'm finishing your motor mount adapters today, I had to wait for a new tap to arrive. They'll go out in a Priority padded envelope this afternoon.

If it moves as fast as the shaft adapter did, it will. More likely Saturday.

Oh wow those are beautiful! 

Well, you might not think so when you get them! They are just sawed to length, hot-rolled bar. The big holes are tapped all the way through, since they are the ones to run a bolt into from under the frame. The smaller holes are tapped about an inch deep on the side marked "TOP", and half an inch deep on the bottoms. I just couldn't get the tap to run all the way! From the directions you posted, it looks like those holes are for studs to mount the new engine on, so they should be entered from the top, and 1" deep 5/16-18 in A36 steel is more thread than holds my Dodge 4.7 V8 in the truck.
