I am on the hunt for one of the Yanmar/Clone 4.5 hp air cooled diesels(the one that isnt imported anymore clone wise). I know it has the power to run the short frame Wheelhorse's with the 36rd mower deck with ease. And no hood chopping or mods Just hook stuff up, reroute the exhaust. You can even use the factory WH fuel tank, just have to route a return line to the tank. If anybody has one they are willing to let go of, running or not, please let me know so I can make the next customization to my Autism Horse! Mike

Any other small air cooled diesels that are 17" tall or less? Only ones I know of is the Yanmar L48 and the clones of it. Trying to find dimensions for the Petter AA1. I know the AC1 is to big to fit without a major notch in the hood on one side. Dont want a bigger tractor, just want a diesel under the hood. LA170F was the clone model number. To bad we cannot import our own engine, they still make them, just cant get the !&$(T*U) thing here! Mike
