I recently found someone who has be greatful enough to help me out. My inboard Perkins M20 diesel is seized and the crank is completely shot. New crank for tractor based engine runs $1200, so I've decided that I am going to repower with a new(to me) diesel.
That said, a gentleman i've come across has a generator that recently died(last season). He decided that it was time to just replace the genny. The engine portion works just fine, but it was the genny portion that died. He is wanting $700 for this little engine, however before I accept his offer, I want to make sure that 1) I can take the transmission from my engine(Perkins M20) and use it on this, or 2) in the event its not compatible, I can get a decent price on one that will work.
The engine is a Kubota D722-e, however there is also another Kubota sticker that states Model: Z482.
Doing a bit of leg work to figure out the transmission on my Perkins M20(aka Perkins 103-6), I THINK(no labels or identifiers are on the tranny itself) it is the Hurth HWB50 marine gearbox. This is based on reading through the docs on boatdiesel.com.
Now I'm trying to figure out if the Kubota engine will accept the gearbox of my perkins. From the Perkins datasheet, the transmission of 2.72:1 ratio however I can't really seem to find much else on this subject.
Can anyone help me out or point me in the right direction?
