I have a 300 series Loader/Backhoe. It had a 157CI Continental diesel.
I am looking for ANY engine that will bolt up to the bell house. Cast into the bell house casting is G1203.
The block bolts on with four bolts.
HELP!

Just stumbled onto this thread. I have a 320, AND a parts book. According to my book, the diesel and gas use different torque tubes(clutch housing). #G1203 for diesel with shuttle, #G1257 for gas with shuttle. ALSO the front steering housing/support are different. #G1120 for gas, #G1138 for diesel. So both ends of the engine mounts appear to be different.

You will need a transmission case from a 148 gas-engined tractor in order to bolt the 148 in place of the GD157 Continental. Flywheel and starter allignment and spacing is the issue you need to look at. JR

If you'll try to measure the pattern out,I have a 148 cu.in. gas engine out that I can measure also to compare it with. Does the front of your engine also have 4 bolts ?

I measured the bolt pattern and from right to left,sitting on the machine,bottom bolt hole to top right,10-15/16th(maybe 11 in.?)top right hole to top left,5-1/2 in. top left to bottom left,11in. This engine is from a 311b ag tractor. Sorry,not for sale.

One other thing,the top 2 bolts screw into the engine,the bottom two,into the bellhousing. The bellhousing has a different # than yours,but I don't know if the pattern is different,or simply the application...

Front of this engine is something like top right to bottom right,6". bottom right to bottom left,11-1/2 (maybe 3/4).bottom left to top left,6". top letf to top right,12". These measurements are really just approximations,as close as I can tell. the engine is stored in a van,and is a bit difficult to get at. It's also 19- 3/8" long. You may be able to change out your front bolster for one that comes from a tractor with the 148 in it. Be sure to check that your front axle will bolt up to it if you do. Good Luck,you're gonna need it!

It would be nice if the front bolts matched up but all I really need is for the bell house to match.
I can make something for the front.
I am not trying to restore this tractor. Just get it running again.

...In that cas4e,I believe the 148 gas engine will fit. One other thing,does your starter take 2 or 3 bolts? I think there's a 148 and 148b engine,and one takes 2,the other,3. I thuink Case made a 159 cu.in engine as well,but I don't have one of those to reference. To be quite honest,I'm suprised that some of the more knowledgeable Case3 guys haven't "said" anything yet. I'm sure more than a couple of them know if there's an easy solution...

I have a three bolt starter.
I need a rod, piston and sleeve for the GD157 diesel.
I have not been able to find those parts so I started looking for a different engine.

Try starting a new thread asking George in MD if he has those pieces. I think it's him that has discussed having old case trackloaders with continental diesels in them.
