Engine swap

6 posts in this topic

I would like to put a smart diesel engine in a mini tractor and was wondering if anyone has info on the wiring to make a standalone engine

No transmission 

Just want to be able to have the engine only to run a hydrostatic transmission 

I need to have the engine wired up to where all I need to do is supply battery power to have it run.

The only guy I have heard do this, he installed it in a BMW bike....he made video's on it, guessing 10 years ago if not more.  He said it was almost impossible to get the electronics right.
I have done the same thing using a CX500 Honda engine to run my mini tractor hydro-statics.   Not finished yet but far easier than our mess of electronics.....simple twin carbs and roughly the same HP  I think?

 

Search ADVRider.com for his videos....that may be where I saw them...?  I used to be heavily into adventure riding all over Canada.

The BMW was an R75 initially.

 

It is a good read from what I remember.
