I have a 1650 gas job with a poor motor. My friend has a 1650 with a diesel that runs well. I want to drop this motor into my gas tractor. Will I have to change a lot of stuff, or will it fit right in? If any one knows if this will work, please post it. Thanks

I did what you are talking about a few years ago. Along with the engine, I switched the tower holding the steering, gauges, etc. This eliminated the wiring harness change and throttle change problem. Used diesel hood, fuel tank, etc. It wasn't all that bad.
Thought about splitting tractor too, I think it would work also. The reason we did not to it was at the time I didn't have the help to do the heavy lifting.

Thanks, I think I might try the split when it is warmer out.

You ever split one? Then you want to split 2 side by side! There is an easier way. Those bolts are 12 point bolts and we broke more than one socket trying to split them till we got the proper socket.

I guess it will be better to have both tractors beside each other when I do this job. I will have to have the computer close to ask more questions when I start the job. Thanks

First of all it might be easier to fix the transmission on his tractor. What is the serial number on both tractors? There were some improvements made to the transmission and final drives so that may enter into it as well. The hoods are different on both tractors as was mentioned. Even the mufflers are different. In can be done but have the 2 side by side when you and if you do it. More questions?

Yes, it would fit, but it would be easier to buy his Diesel tractor, sell yours to somebody else.
You would have to change a lot of small stuff, including the starter, manifold preheater and wiring, governor control linkage, add a fuel return line as a minimum...
Maybe also different air cleaner, hood, etc.

Do you think that it would be easier to split the tractors and put the two halves together? I"m getting the whole tractor and the tranny is no good on the diesel. My tranny is good still.

It would seem that just exchanging the halves would be easier- but thats a lotta iron, and its one thing to split your tractor, carefully roll the back part to the rear, then roll it back together- everything will still be pretty well lined up. But more difficult to jockey the rear ends around to exchange them. Would depend on how well your shop is set up, I guess.
