I know a guy with 2 bobcat 4cyl diesel motors. How would they work in a light Jeep? :? House can they be hopped up? :? I know I would have to fab up a bell housing mount. Would it be worth the effort?

Hmmm, i'm sure there are different size bob cat engines. See if you can't figure out thier size and such.

As far as a bell housing most industrial diesels like that have one of three standard sized of bell housings, and then all types of transmission adapters to bolt to that standard bell housing, so beleieve it or not you could probably find something to work.

the bobcats that I have driven redline about 3500 rpm, or atleast that is what they are governed at.

I think you are on to something.

thats really good. Most cummins 4Bs are only governed at 24-2800, although they'll old 3200 easily, and do close to 4000 with heavier valve springs..

He got em from his brother, the foundry he worked at changed em out every six weeks... They are 58 or 60 horse Kabotas.... I was thinking for my friends CJ2 it would be a great replacement for the blown up flatty that is in it... And the weigh in around 275 lbs......
