  1. Wisconsin Diesel

    Awesome! Thank you I will check these out! -Nate
  2. Wisconsin Diesel

    I think I was leaning more towards a Cub Cadet transaxle. Gear driven, driveshaft, and it has a granny gear so it'd pull like a champ. I'd really like to stay away from hydrostatic because like you said it might destroy the pump coupling. Unfortunately however, I haven't been able to find any parts for this engine. All it really need is a gasket set which i could probably make but some of them are really oddly shaped. Thanks, Nate
  3. Wisconsin Diesel

    This'll be my first post in a while but I picked up a Wisconsin 2 cylinder diesel engine about a year ago and I was wondering if any of you guys have heard of them. Most people I talk to about it I usually get "I never knew Wisconsin made diesels" so I guess they're pretty rare. I'm currently looking for gaskets for it. Im also looking for ideas from all of you guys about how I could convert the 1276 to a transmission with a driveshaft rather than a belt. I'd also need to reroute my steering mechanism. Looking forward to hearing you guys' solutions and ideas! thanks, Nate

  5. K301 Compression test?

    i hope i dont have to hone it out.
  6. K301 Compression test?

    it does blow white smoke but i didn't realize that it was a sign of compression loss. I thought it was losing compression because I've gone through the carb several times and its clean but it still pops and sputters but won't stay running. I talked to the Power Equipment teacher at my school and he said it sounded like compression loss. -Nate
  7. Diesel Swap?

    I keep looking but can't seem to find one for cheap enough. -Nate
  8. K301 Compression test?

    Hi everyone! Unfortunately I think the K301 is losing compression. I rented a compression tester from Advanced Auto Parts (I highly recommend doing this! It's one of those things that you don't need all the time unless you're a mechanic. It's $40 to rent and you get it for 3 months or something like that but when you bring it back you get all your money back including tax!) So i tested the compression and I got around 60 PSI so I figured its losing compression. So I called my local dealer to see if he could order me a rebuild kit (I know i can get it on ebay but i just like having an excuse to go down there) and i told him my situation and he said that those engines almost always run when they have low compression they just smoke like crazy and that my reading could be inaccurate because those engines have a compression release. How would I test to see if i'm losing compression? He suggested putting an air fitting in the spark plug hole and put air in there with a compressor with the piston at top-dead-center and where ever it leaks from thats what needs to be fixed. I just wanted to see if you guys had any other suggestions or if you could tell me what places the air could come from so i know what to look for. Thanks in advance, Nate
  9. "The music of my people"

    I'm addicted to them lol
  10. What do you get when you take a '73 Chevy Shortbed, throw in a LS6 engine and a Turbo 400 transmission with a gear vendor? Well, they call it the Muscle Truck. watch to about 11:18 min for the best part but feel free to keep watching! I love these guys. ROADKILL -Nate

  14. Paint?

    Can you get a protective coating that will harden the paint or make it less easy to scratch if you rattle can it? -Nate
