Re: Rescue Minor Kubota Diesel Source
- Hey Robb,
Sure am glad to know you're OK.
I kinda figured it was one of those corporate territory BS things.
But I'll definitely scratch around for a surplus or used one. Maybe
even just get a tractor to keep the engine and sell the parts.
Another possibility is a water-cooled Kohler gas engine, but so far
they seem to be as expensive as the diesel. But the weight is awesome
at only 114 lbs.
We'll see what I dig up, and thanks for the insight.
Oh, I'm not sure if you saw the previous post, but I couldn't figure
out what you used for an air purge valve. Does that need a valve to
fill and another to purge, or do they make a valve that does both at
the same time? I suppose it's the same as what they use on air
shocks? Pardon my pneumatic ignorance!
