Great Build! I have a couple of questions. What did you use for the fuel pump and How hard was it to wire up to crank it with the glow plugs and starter?

When the guy I did the install for brought me the engine it had an Electric fuel pump with it. As far as starting it, I just hooked the starter to the battery and crossed out the solonoid, the owner finished the wiring. The Glow plugs didn't have any wire attached to them, I guess they are not needed here in Florida.

The clutch adaptor- I cut a circle from a piece of 3/8 plate larger in diameter than the flywheel clutch bolt holes, put it on the lathe and made it a perfect circle, then chucked it in the lathe on the outside of the plate and center bored a 1-1/4 inch hole. Then I pressed in a 1 1/4 X 4 inch long piece of cold rolled hardened round stock and welded the back side and the front side of the plate. Then I chucked the plate back in the lathe and turned the round stock down to 1 inch this way it will be true centered, I left a 1/2 inch shoulder next to the plate, while in the lathe I drilled and tapped the end of the shaft for the Drive clutch bolt. Then I drilled holes in the plate to the exact hole in the flywheel clutch mounts and bolted it to the flywheel with grade 8 bolts. Sorry I didn't take any pictures of it.

This is my dream build!! Everything I own is a diesel with the exception of my carts. This will be my next project if somebody will donate a motor.

Don't mean to high/jack but this sounds close to what I was thinking of doing for a crank pulley for my alternator at least similar.
