Custom build 1772 Diesel

Post by Dave C »

Was aquiring parts to build this for Several Years. started with a Kubota D662 I got from Ray Weaver was out of a cub cadet zero turn. Then i picked up a Burn Victim at a red power roundup maybe in 2008? joe? The burn Victim was a 982 with a cast rear, pto and 3 point. Following that i got ANOTHER burn victim from joe which was a 2072... pretty well stripped down, but i salvaged the upper part of the steering column... long shaft power steering. Took a cyclops steering box from a 1862 and installed the long shaft from the burn victim. Of course. new tires, power coated everything... or most everything. Drive shaft from a 1440 i think, along with the coupler from jeff in pa.
I am rounding the finish line of cub cadet kubota specific parts this build included repoped parts: Both Engine mount side plates, Engine cradle, battery box, Fan bracket, idler bracket and exhaust bracket.
Not complete yet... but i finally test run her today. after replacing the injector pump which was stuck solid!

Wow what a cool project! Was that your first time hearing that engine? I have lots more questions..but I won't bother you with my needs. Lol. Looks so cool. Some day my all painted and ready to assemble 1572 will make it back together. Hopefully. Maybe.

Dag,

Yea it was the first time i heard that engine run. I tried to run it a few weeks back but was not getting anything for fuel at the injectors.... finally pulled the pump and found the rack froze and all 3 plungers stuck up. So no fuel delivery. found a good used pump on ebay and droped her in yesterday

Ask all the questions you want! ill answer the best i can.

I think the 982 fire tractor was red power 2007 at Bloomsburg.

Frame is from a 2082 I bought with no engine or tires. Funny part is I bought that 2082 around 2012? I just bought the tires/rims in February and deck from the same guy last week!

I’ve been watching Dave’s projects for years now, this one like all of his, is turning out quite nice!

I was thinking the same thing steve. I remember one of my first utube videos ever watched was that Cub cadet with the turbo... where he throttles it up and down a few times. Dave's video reminded me of that.
