Hey everyone I have a 254 Jinma that was my fathers . To say the least I'm not impressed with the engine. I have a C3 cat out of s Tennant however that has graciously volunteered for a transfer of residence. I was wondering if anyone knew the bell housing patter on the Jinma tractors . Or if there is a generic industrial bell housing that might be close.
worse comes to worse I'll just machine out a adapter plate but any thoughts or idea ,or information would be greatly appreciated. thanks

You must think very highly of the Jimna transmission and driveline to even consider swapping in an engine something like 3x the original's power

no I have no reguard for it at all . However my father passed in 2009 and he bought this thing in boxs from rural king and assembled it himself . So I would like to keep it.
That and I gave the engine and small parts . so no real investment and the engine in this tractor is junk .
Originally the Jinma engine hD a knock from day 1 ,after a couple close inspections found it was the cylinders actually walking in the block . Rural King and three rebuild kits later ,we found a complete set of liners for it . Quality control being what it is , 80 hours later .the tractor is sitting again . since 2007 the tractor has maybe 300 hours on it. I'm not spending another cent on anything Jinma. so I'll give it a shot

I guess my point is; I'd find something that comes in a little closer to the OEM's peak torque numbers when doing an engine swap.

Good advice ,and under normal circumstances sure . However its just not what I'm doing . it kind of like I've got a much loved family pinto and I'm dropping a big block chevy into it . Even though I know how horrible the frames are. Is it practical "not really" is it advisable "debatable " Is it what is going to happen " if I can get a print or measurements on the bell housing ,why not .. I guess what I'm saying I'll advised as it may be : I'm going to give it a try. Just thought someone might have some information.

Someone here dropped a kubota 1.5l into one. Do a search. I'm on my phone, or I'd link to the thread.
