Thanks. The one I need has 6 holes for d1105. Found one bug it is only 1Ē. Iíll probably use a tapered sleeve with a key to make it 1 1/8 for the 1190 clutch

So this old DS 1984 needs a 6Ē lift. Looking for that right now. Let me know what you suggest. Want the smoothest ride but I want it beefy. Donít want anything to break.

Question. Are you able to side load the crank/bearings [as in pulling a belt] on a D1100? Reason I ask is I am running 2, 4 cylinder Kubotas V2203, both pulling belts, one on a compressor, the other on a generator and I had to use stub shafts with bearings for these applications. According to the factory recommendations, the main bearings otherwise would not last long with a heavy side load. Just a friendly heads up.

Also keep in mind that with a max RPM of 3000 you might not get the speed out of it that you want.

Regarding the crank. I cant tell you from experience but Iíll look into it. Iíve owned several kubotas in this Hp range and never had an issue. There are a set of crank bearings as the crank goes across the length of the engine. On the other side where the fan is are several other belts putting stress on the crank and Iíve never had one fail. This particular 1105 even has an auxiliary pully got a gen or some other application and since the engine is used and it sounds good I canít imagine it having any detrimental wear at this point. I did do some research after your post and found a bearing I could use as you suggested and itís less than 100 bucks. Iím not sure yet if I will go that way as I am unsure with the Comet 1190 in place how it would all fit on the shaft.

Thanks for the heads up. Will keep that in mind as this cart goes together. Is there anyone on this forum who have had a side loading issue with a kubota? There are many diesel projects posted and these are with smaller engines than the 1105. Figure the issue will be seen more frequently

We are sizing the clutch/driven parts at the moment. We have the ratio from the rear end I got from the Toro Workman which was designed to go about 20 with the gas engine (higher rpmís) so there will be changes. I canít reuse the current driven pully anyhow since the previous owner or the boneyard damaged it. However, I donít need to reach race speeds as the campground speed limits are low.

Ordered heavy duty springs and shackles for the rear because this engine adds just over 200lbs to the cart. New frame is fit up and will be tig welded sometime this coming week. Iíve picked out a lift kit for the front but will have to wait a week or two to order as itís not cheap. Looking at a Jakes adjustable 6-10 inch long travel lift kit. I like to be able to adjust based on the outcome of the engine mount/platform fabrication. Also can go as large as 25Ē tires with this kit. Since weíve set things up to stretch the frame 40Ē looking for more stability. Will have that with a wider rear and front stance with bigger tires, which will also help the speed

I'm thinking now that the side load on your crank would be fairly light and almost intermittent moving a golf cart. Your engine's torque output is lower too. On my compressor engine I used a Hays Couplings bellhousing adaptor and stub shaft, The generator's engine I made a stub shaft and support driving it with the reefer's compressor splined hub.

How is your project coming? Your repower has me interested as the finished machine can easily run for another 5-10 000 hours.

Funny you should ask We are busy welding because Iím stretching it 40Ē Going slow just because Iím not the best at TIG welding aluminum yet Lots of practice happening here lol I can mig weld steel pretty well but aluminum can be really challenging Iím finding

Got the clutch and adapter I need Waiting to buy the front end lift for prob another two weeks Have plenty of time which will all he used up welding Gives me time to fab the engine cradle and place the rear suspension

Once I get the welds looking like at least a beginner Iíll post some low res pics so you can see it but not zoom in and see how bad my welds are

Why not get a spool gun and some argon for your wirefeeder? You know, MIG was initially designed to efficiently weld aluminum. I know tig is all the fashion nowadays and has it's place, but a thick golf cart frame is wayyy down on the list.
