Smile Kubota D1005 E engine

Hi all forum members.
I have just managed to get hold of a Kubota D1005 E engine for my ongoing project.
A small old Macwester 26 yacht.
I had been looking about for a small engine because the height i have under the cockpit floor of only 24 inches.
Any body else had to look about for a small engine for the same reason.?

Not me.

I popped in only to say; but you probably already know, that marinized Kubota engines were sold by Universal/Westerbeake, and Beta Marine.

Re: Kubota D1005 E engine

As a tractor engine it's going to need some 'marinization' modifications.. follow up on eherlihy's comments on Universal/Beta. Depending on how you plan to cool the engine (FWC or RWC), and what gearbox you're going to use you'll need some parts and adaptors...

Hi .
I have an engineer that will be making an adaptor plate for the flywheel to the gearbox splined shaft.
He will also be making the adaptor plate from the gearbox to the engine housing.
The gear box I am going to use is a Volvo Penta Box it has a down angle of approx 7 or 8 degrees. Quite a small size gearbox.

As for engine cooling the engine will run on it's own water supply with a through a heat exchanger .
The heat exchanger is from a Fish koi pond and is constructed using 316 stainless steel
and will be cooled with raw seawater using a Jabsco pump.
Again the pully will have to be converted to run the pump.
The last fitted engine was a raw water engine so the seacock is already there..

I will be posting details about it on my website as it is completed..

Re: Kubota D1005 E engine

Sorry.. it just seems you want to make the project more difficult. A 3 cylinder kubota is very well supported by marine parts you can buy off the shelf.

I am not too sure if there as easy to get here in the U.K as they are there.
I have never looked.

But I like a challenge and as a keen diy er and a few favours owed it should cost very very little.
So I guess thats the reason for me.
The engine was a gift in return for a small job of work I carried out for somebody so again A cash saving thing.
