I'll be thinking of you around Thanksgiving time. Penguin, Stuffing, and Cranberry sauce. :puke2:

Back when I did motorcycle/ATV repair on the side, I worked on a couple BMW bikes. They had large flywheels, and when I first sat on one when running & gave it some throttle, it gave me a weird feeling from the way it felt it was gonna roll right over on it's side. Took some getting used to. My GoldWing I used to have didn't do that at all, but then it's flywheel was much much smaller diameter & lighter.


I've always liked the Beemer bikes... I owned an R65 when I was in the Army in Alabama. The older engines had heavy flywheels, but they really lightened them up on the newer engines--gives a lot better throttle response.

I see where aircraft homebuilders are using the R1100 & R12oo engines with the oil-cooled heads as power plants... I've been tempted to put one in a tractor as they sell on eBay between $400 to $800, but they rev pretty high, so I suspect the torque band is all wrong.

That's sad to hear because the old Beemers used to pull pretty good at most rpm's.

Good point... if I could find an older beemer engine it might work well... problem is, it's probably worth more than the whole tractor!!!

Got to love the old Lister diesel engines. I'd like to find someone who has stuck a Wisconsin TJD (twin) in their tractor.

That would be me! Here's a link to my article on it.

Ask and you shall receive! Seems like you've done it all Daniel ... How's the Pulling power compared to a k321 / k341?

Now that's slick and I'll bet it sounds nice also. Looks like it belongs there.

There IS NO comparison! :bigrofl: The TJD keeps pulling like a diesel! The harder you pull a TJD, the more she just claws & digs! The TJD is second here only to my Bush Hog JB with the Kubota 25hp diesel.
