Everything fits.....

Some issues with the rocker box and rocker arms. I don't like the way things fit and I may strip it yet again and try and build a better one with the spares and original parts.

There also seems to be a warp somewhere. I haven't looked into it closely enough to guess but can manage to shuv the corner of a cig pack under the corner of the rocker box.

Front bearing carrier was much tighter to squeeze in than remove. I chilled and well lubed it no problem

I noticed now that the oil lube hole in the bearing was in the 6 o'clock possition. I know thats how I took it apart (center punched the castings). I rotated the carrier so now its at 11 o'clock, This doesn;t present any oiling problems because the outer race of the front carrier hsa a relief machined in it so oil can feed up and around to catch the cam and main oil gallery. Hopefuly some of the gray beards will jump in and tell me if this was a mistake ( its still easy to spin things right up untill I close the  cover.

Oh ya crud in the cam, noticed the balck specs as I prelubed it. took me about an hour to finaly get it clean.... 

Oh ya and that iron casting that holds the crank gear and torques the preload on the trust bearings. It looks black in my early pictures and now its painted because a little rub with some oil released all kinds of crap. I washed it, scrubed it and fianly resorted to Naval Jelly ( I love that stuff thanks again Jack ). One clean and painted I now believe I have sorted out all the dirt

Also of interest but little practical use, the oil pump can be flipped. I guess if you order the counter rotating cam you can simple flip the pump and run the engine back wards.

There's an interesting hole bored down from the deck orependicular to the rear cam bearing. This is acst iron bearing so lubrication is critical. Oil travels threw the cam center, but I think at one time this may have been a presurized bearing. Might try and do someth ing with this if I can find a way to tap into it connect it to the gallery below. Notice it to the left of the exhaust lifter and block studd

So here's the pictures

Indeed Rajkot has a great deal to worry about. I may start my own works here in Canada create some western competition by employing like mindedly short sighted people to badly assemble roids lol....

Found all the parts needed to convert the Existing oil lines to JIC fittings from Kubota. These are standard easy to find fittings all BSP to JIC #4 and can be had at any good hydraulic shop....

Same goes for fuel lines but the inector return is a 10mm banjo bolt you can get from any diesel shop

Hi Doug

It sounds like you are getting close to putting the petteroid to work.
 Good luck

Things move slow, I need to nuild the new garage and knock down some old shacks before thegenerator shed goes up.

Sadl this may not happen this summer. U  have to gut a kitchen, knock down a wall, build a new kitchen, gut a bathroom ect ect ect.

I wish I was dead right.....

Upgraded:

Someoil ines are now a larer #6 JIC.
# 4 JIC for the rocker arm has a brass restrictor to reduce oil flow.
Need a presure resliefe for the oiling system.
Need to rethink my 12.75 inch alternator puly. Material this sizer is hard to come by, found some 4 inch plate and some 1 inch mild. More thought required.

No work done lately but its cool in the nickel city this evening ( around 60 F ) so I decided to do a test of the upgraded grid heater.

90 seconds with the two NGK glow plugs ( salvaged from a Kubota 520 mini loader ) brought the intake up to bloody hot. Too hot to handle and the paint has softened enough to make the two parts fuse...

I would call this a succesful test, the air cleaner didn't burn, no pealing paint and the head even seems to have warmed some.

The final product will probably not need anything else for a cold start...

Well things are kind of at a stand still since the Kitchen reno that went wrong ( Home Depot "You can do it the rest we'll screw up for you " ).

Updates building a bracket to hold a Kawasaki diesel waterpump and thermostat housing.
I have since given up on the other attempts using individual parts.
I have aquired a 5 imperial gallon steel fuel tank with a sight gauge ( also from the Kawasaki Mule ).
Looking for a smaller doner Alterntor to hang off the water pump bracket ( and provide belt tension )
Incomplete ST doghouse replacement still needs wire ( all parts mounted I'm just too buisy )
All steel cut and springs and soloniod mounted for the Fuel rack auto shut down ( just not assemebed and tested this might be abandoned since it makes things too complicated )
Still hunting for something to build a 13 inch pully for the ST 5 ( would like some 1 1/2-2 inch plate, hard to work with material that thick, too cheap to farm the job out right now ).
Electric decompressor, still born project.
New air cleaner, done
Mufler, have one needs a new neck welded onthe match the petteroid.
Remote oil filter done and all lines converted from BSP to JIC fittings and hydraulic lines.
Oil presure relife valve made from scratch needs to be tested and.

Engines is otherwise assembled and ready to run.

Need spring and warm weather top build a new garage and time to putter.

Would like to swap or buy a short style PTO cam Petteroid shaft for the long ones I have
