Kub Kadet 169 Diesel in progress...

Post by mgruber04 »

This is my ongoing project...it has been ongoing over the last 14 years. It is a 169 frame with a Kubota Z482 2 cyl diesel.

I have since put ag tires on the rear, added Brinley lift, and put a different exhaust pipe on it (the one in picture was borrowed from my B7100)

Sounds like a cool project but the picture is not opening for me? Anyone else see pictures?

That's great! I'm sure that was a lot of work! If I recall that's probably about a 12 HP engine? Where did you put the fuel tank..is that why you changed the rear fenders? Thanks for posting

The fuel tank is actually under the fenders. I got the idea from a 1541? gasser that I used the fenders from. The battery is under the hood where the gas tank was originally on the 169. The radiator is from the Kubota and is mounted in the front grill with electric cooling fan.
