Not really. The individual that we were working through in Japan changed occupations in the middle of the transaction. :confuse:
Things kind of went down hill from there. I have picked up a couple more diesels since but I don't think either are suitable for this application. I will try and get photos on here tomorrow. One is another Lister-Peters and the other I think is an Iseki. The Iseki is a two cylinder water cooled out of a Tri-pac that mounts on the frame of a Semi. They are used to cool the truck. Appears to only be about 8 Hp. Cute little fella but I think it is too small for the Ford unless you just want to use it to pull a weed sprayer. I suspect that i might have a 24 volt starter on it :mecry:. The Lister-Petters is like the other one I have a single cylinder air cooled torque monster. This one appears to only have 2 hundred hours on it but they ran it on the "rich Start" position and coked the exhaust valve up to where it had no compression. Took it apart and de-carboned and lapped the valves and it runs like a clock now. :D More tomorrow with the photos.

The first pictures are of the little 2 cylinder water cooled diesel. This is the smallest one I've come across yet. The sad part is I have two of these at my disposal but I'm not sure what I want to do with them. Supposedly they both run good. I like the fact that they are self contained and already have the drive belt pulley installed.

The next is another Lister-Petters like the one I already have. These are a long stroke air cooled diesel. They develop tons of torque on almost no fuel consumption. 8hp. at 3000 rpm and 5hp. at 1500rpm.

I hate to see you so sad Chris, so to make you happy again, ship one of those twins to me and I'll make you proud with what I do with it! :smilewink:

Don't tempt me, you might just find one on your porch with a shipping COD attached to it. That would teach you to be more careful what you wish for. :rofl2:

Depending on the charge, I might sleep well with that! :smilewink:

Chris

The 2 cylinder Kubota I have is out of a Semi idling unit--provided heat, A/C and power by means of an alternator, A/C compressor, and the hot water from the engine. It is rated at 10-13 hp, so you might have a little more power there than you think.

One of these first days I'm going to take the housing off and see if I can get more information off of the engine. He said he didn't think that it ran very fast but it used to kick the breaker so they didn't use them much. I have no idea how many hours are on these units. This one looks like the crankshaft seal might be leaking a little bit. The other one is very clean. 10 to 13hp. would be a bonus as the owner told me he thought they we in the 6 to 8hp. range. That might be true if they were running just above an idle. This is always the fun of trying to use someone else's junk.

You might say different if you were around my Harley Davidson golf cart for any length of time. :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth:

Man,does that thing smoke.Don't ever have to worry about skeeters when it's running.

I found a Tri-pac unit on ebay that is a Kubota Z482. TriPac Yours isn't a 482, but does look to be a Kubota.

I'm going out there and tear into it shortly. Then I should have more info this evening. I think if a guy were to install one of these in a tractor with low range you would still have something usable. They sure are a compact unit and I like the electric cooling fan.

Photos to follow.
