The Kabota with a turbo may be just large enough to try water methanol injection.
Before all this tracker action started, propane was on my list of things to try. What size engine was the K03 used on? I used an IHI-RHB31 on the Yanmar, which is about the smallest one I could find, but still too big. I was thinking I'd use the same on the Kubota. I don't know about the water methanol injection, I'll have to look into it.

The K03 was first used on a diesel ford, sub 2.0L diesel engine over in europe that only put out something like 40 or 60hp. In the U.S. the K03 is most well known for being the undersized turbo that comes on the older 1.8L VW gas engines.
It has about a 52mm compressor.

Whats that IHI-RHB31 like?
Maybe it would fit better than the K03 (only problem is I already have 2).

Looks like it's coming along. When do you think you'll have it finished to the point where you can drive it (I realize projects like this are never "finished")? Got a pics of the whole vehicle?

I can probably speak for 95% of the people here (if I may be so bold) that we seriously envy your skills, tools, workspace and patient wife. You are a fortunate man to tackle projects like this. Keep up the good work!

Any chance of creating a diesel motorcycle?
Thanks for the compliments! I noticed this engine on Surplus Center, it's new to their inventory, I think. It would make a great motorcycle if anyone wants to tackle it. That's not in the works for me any time soon.

Recent work has been mostly wiring. I have the glow plugs and fuel cutoff actuator completely wired. I have a little tidying up to do under the dash, then I can put that back together. Then, it will be down to fuel, exhaust, and air cleaner! I opted to be very meticulous with the wiring. (see photo)
