Please tell me what I have. I picked up a G 230 engine and have the bright idea of trying to put it into a WD. First of all what was the engine used for, combine or stationary power unit?? What will I be up against, such as for a clutch, as the 230 doesn' have one. I know the frame would have to lengthed. Is there a bell housing that will bolt up such as a D series??? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks all for listening.

Thanks again for all the help. If I understand right, all I need is a bell housing and clutch assembly from a WD45 or a D17????????? and it should bolt right up. I have the hood.

The G230 engine is from the Buda adquisition and was the engine for the Gleaner A and R combines.
The D230 as used in the WD45D is essentially the same engine but much higher compression ratio. The gas engine version was hell for stout! Mr D15 seems to have it right.

I don't know for sure on a WD, but the trans input shaft is different between gas and diesel on the D17. To put that 230 in a WD like someone said you need the rear plate off a WD45 diesel tractor engine. The D17 plate is different. Might need the trans input shaft from a diesel also.

Thanks for the info. The engine does not necessarily have to go into my WD. Just want to get some kind of clutch on the back. Have an old F20 with no engine and as long as I can get a clutch assembly that will fit, I will be happy. Just something to do in my spare time and make up something different.

Thanks guys for the info. Very helpful. Forgot to mention that it is the Allis G230 engine. By going with the comments, I am assuming that a D17 bell housing or WD45 diesel, it would bolt up to the 230 as I have no clutch, just a housing with a shaft coming out. Again, thanks for the info. jim in ILL

What would work well is to find a WD45 diesel with a bad motor(and a lot of them were) and slip yours right in.

Probably out of a combine but could be a power unit motor. This is the gas version of the WD45 diesel. The frame is fine but the radiator and grill will have to be moved forward and you'll need a hood from a WD45 diesel. Other than that I think it should work. The D17 diesel used the 262 which I think was made from the 230, and the WD45 and D17 gas both have the 226 so it should fit a D17 too.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
