Kubota diesel for sale

About 3 years ago, I installed a 1005 Kubota diesel (3 cylinder, 28 hp) into a 93 festiva, 5 spd. I put a turbo on it that made a big power difference. My best tank was 68 mpg. The transaxle blew over a year ago and I found another but haven't put it in or driven it since. Anyone interested in the Kubota and turbo ($1000) or any Festiva parts, rims or new tires or the whole package?? Norm southern tier of NYstate

The engine weighs 245 pounds. I never measured boost, but it would occasionally blow off the rubber hose and clamp I used on the pressure side. I didn't increase fuel with boost. I'm sure it was burning excess fuel with boost as the exhaust cleaned up and the engine was noticeably more powerful - I guess I should say that when the boost hose blew off, I would notice immediately that the power had dropped off.

Norm, would you be interested in anything for trade?

Also, I have Festiva parts if you want a new gearbox... I have 6 of them.

And I'm only a jump away from you, about 15 minutes from Elmira, NY.
