I'm not sure if they could machine a small crankshaft or what the costs would be but I had a spun crankshaft on my Ford 3 cyl gas engine repaired at a machine shop they welded it reground it , Al

$178 to grind the 430's crank alone. Then boring, magnafluxing....it all adds up. Fred should be way better off with this run-ready diesel he's going after. Bit I would be dying to leave for it. Monday is forever away!

Picked up my engine yesterday. I had a slight communication prob with the guy because he was supposed to hold both engines till I got there. He had sold the 24hp Yanmar so I bought the other engine. He said if I had any problems with the engine to bring it back so I feel pretty good about that. With any luck I might get to hear it run tonight. :orangecool:

That's good news Fred. Too bad you missed the 24HP. I have the 24HP Yanmar in my 2320. It is used in the x700 diesels and the 2305 as well. It would have been a good fit in the 430.

Not running but some progress. Lots of parts have to be switched from the original engine.

IT'S ALIVE!! Got her running. Power steering works, pto works, moved under it's own power in the garage, charging, one oil leak, sounds great and around $1200 so far. Hope to have a video of her mowing tomorrow. :yelclap:

Do you have a video of the 2320? I would love to hear the engine I missed out on :)

Grandson Case & I checked on his progress just before milking. After milking tonight I flew up there to see if she was purring yet. Well, his new Yanny engine wasn't purring, it was roaring! Good as a new engine, very responsive, and ready to roll! I figure he'll be mowing with it tomorrow! Attaboy Fred! :thumbs:

Wow, you guys really can find the deals and make them work!
Fred, I do have a vid of the 2320 doing some loader work but it's kinda long. I'll see if I can shoot something shorter today. I've got to do some work with it this morning.

I just posted this Fred. The audio isn't too bad on it.

Glad the 430 has life again. I was thinking the same thing about Brian's trails, they seem to go on forever.

That trail where I dumped the gravel loops back up to the back yard after another hundred feet or so. I started out with trails and garden plots in the back yard to keep from having a lawn to mow. Then I built the trails through the woods in 3 sections, 1 section each year. I remember posting a thread on MTF in 2009 when I did the one where I ended the video. I was just adding some gravel to the thin spots this fall. The trails allow me to access the back part of the property when I have to dispose of brush or cut up dead trees etc. We also use them to train the dogs and for walking. I plan to add a couple of benches allong the way. The loader is mighty handy whenever you need to shift anything heavy. I even use it to take out the garbage cans when they are heavy. Don't laugh too hard! - the driveway is 300ft long and uphill.
