I finally got some work done on the ole diesel I got the old gas motor out and got the old wireing harness out and took every thing off the frame that I'm not going to use. Then I had to make new engine mounts I made them out of angle iron then I had to get the pulley on the motor I had my buddy take the two hubs to his work to get machined down so the one hub can fit over the other one sense I had to use the hub off the generater because the crank was tapered not keyed. I got that all put on then I got the motor all lined up and mounted it after that I built the exoust out of old motorcycle pipes I got out of the local junk yard I plan on getting more done this weekend can't wait to hear this beast run!

I got some more progress done on the diesel the last couple weeks I got the motor all wired up and plumed turned out I need up having to get a electronic fuel pump sense my fuel tank is in the rear of the tractor but I got it all hooked up and got it running it sounds pretty awesome and it even blows a little bit of black smoke I'll have a video this weekend! Tonight I got my new rear tires mounted and put on the tractor. I had to put a 3/4in lift under the fenders to clear the tires. Then I finally got my hood mounted again I had to change the left hood hinge so it can clear my air cleaner.

That's one good looking build! Glad to see you've done some progress on it, I really wanted you to go through with your plans as I have not seen a modern sears with a diesel. Tweak the fuel system so you can roal some serous coal!!!!!!! Whoops , diesel enthusiasm kicked in a bit ....love the tires

Thanks ya I really like the stance on it too I think I'm going to give it a 1in lift on the front so the front tires will clear when I turn but I'm not 100% sure if I am or not. I'm going to be repainting it a dark gray metallic kinda like how it is buy a lot more glossie. Ya I'm hoping to turn it up some so it can roll come coal I got a buddy who is a diesel mechanic I'm hoping he can help me make it smoke!

Looking good. I am curious how you are going to route your belt putting in a horizontal engine in that configuration.

I've always wanted to see somebody do exactly this. You got rid of that belt twist these tractors came with and put in a horizontal shaft engine driving the horizontal input transmission. Seems like a a simple idea and it sounds like it was that easy for you to do. To top it off you put in a diesel. Bravo sir

I was planning something similar next year when i put the sasquatch tractor back to a Utility build.  Current config gives me no value.

I think it's a custom setup. Looks like it should work great! Those Executioners look great on thete as well, haha.

Hopefully the idler on the tension side of the belt holds up over time. It's definitely something you need to keep your eye on.

That's one of the best rear tow hooks I've seen on a tractor yet.
