I think it has been suggested to use it as a boat engine but my initial thought was a diesel powered motorbike & possibly a small turbo from something like a Daihatsu. Also should run fine on pretty much anything vaguely oily. We run our Diesel Citroen on sunflower oil and occasionally a dose of dead petrol mixed in to get rid of it. Dead petrol even aids cold starting in winter when running veg oil, up to about 15-20% I've taken it to. I know you have a bit of waste "gas" around the place maybe that would be a useful way to recycle it? Hope you like the bike/trike idea, diesel bikes rock!

air locked maybe, idk im typing this at 8:23... you might actually need the glow plug for this old thing. but in all reality i have no idea, i have very limited knowledge of diesel engines, limited to JUST above zip, ziltch, nada NOTHING! lmao
EDIT: nice i see you got it running, now i guess you have a generator for the zombie apocalypse haha

Imagine this in a motorbike..
Kubota starts incredibly fast if you heat up those plugs. Engine parts, if needed, you will find them on Bobcat. They run little diesel Kubota on their mini-excavators. Best regards!

She definitely wants to live, that engine. Will work hard for years that. Whatever it goes in, it needs to be something which is going to be used a lot.

How about building a longtail boat like they use on the rivers in Thailand and Vietnam?

desiels are sweets im starting to like them little by little
what model is it ? kubota ?

Could be a good equivalent to a Wisconsin engine. We had 2 cylinder like it. In pumps and air compressors.

One way to start a diesel engine without glow plugs is with some form of accelerant such as carby cleaner or normal fuel.

I wonder if they checked the diodes on the rotor because sometimes they either blow or short out or either the rotor or stator could be open or short circuited.

Sometimes they need to be flashed with a torch battery (either a 6 or 9 volt battery will do) if the capacitor has no charge left in it.

Some generators come with the provision to flash the stator & rotor windings with a 9 volt battery !
