so i traded a g14 a cab a snowblower and a deck for my kubota engine. it needs a 32 dollar solenoid since he broke it loading it into his truck( the wire goin from the battery to the solenoid got stuck in his tailgate and when he yanked it he broke the solenoid) but he was still able to run it, some black smoke on startup but then it ran nice. no stubshaft on the flywheel end but a 6 bolt pattern with the bolts. so i think this engine is going to fit in with a little bit of light fabrication. also the engine must weigh a few hundred pounds easily, me and the 5x5 italian guy who sold it to me could barely move it. i think the front axle of the ht20 is going to hold the weight effortlessly though.

Back up real fast and hit the brakes.:bigrofl::bigrofl:
Or, tie the engine to a tree and drive forward.:bigrofl::bigrofl::bigrofl:

well it rolled off the truck, i had a good setup which was putting it on the hand truck rated for 900lbs. and rolling it down my loading ramps, well the one ramp started to shift and the engine rolled down into the mud unharmed. the only thing that broke was a plastic plug that went into the alternator. so mission success.

Glad it's at ground level now. Sorry to hear of the mishap, though. Things that heavy, I load on my trailer. It's low to the ground. Not so far for things to fall off it.

stub shaft.jpg ok so i think i planned out my stub shaft. in gonna get lets say a 3 inch circle of steel, lets say 3/8th inch thick. get the holes drilled into it in the pattern of the kubotas flywheel. then i get lets say a 2 inch dia. pice of steel tubing 2 inches long. get a plate made for the stub shaft im using. then ill get it welded together on center and drop the engine in. heres a thing i made on paint, kinda represents my ideas for the plates, im not a paint expert though. also i plan to drill the holes proportional, like i cant do on paint.

You will have no problems with the mig welds not holdin , their welds are very strong. That being said,make sure you get good penetration.
