I would think that would be a custom made adapter, and I don't think an AX15
will live long behind that engine.

Are you thinking of putting one in a YJ?

It's 1257 pounds and 52in long according to the cut sheet.....




.

Whats over that next ridge?

Hmmm specs on this engine are all over the place, yes weight and length do come up
about that on some spec sheets. I think the first one I looked at was on a skid.

But what I'm seeing now is 87 HP and 199 ft pounds.

Why do this swap?

I would suggest that you also look for an adapter that utulizes the standard GM SBC/BBC bolt pattern. You will have way more bellhousing and transmission options. And it you are wedded to the AX15 you might be able to stack adapters (kidding).

Fair enough. I agree with the GM bellhousing if your set on this engine.

Did you look at the Mercedes OM617A turbo diesel line? They have more power, or can that
engine be turned up?

That's a generator/tractor engine. I'm seeing less than 40hp rated continuous output.

Why?

A Caterpillar/Perkins or Kubota will be easier to find parts for. Deutz engines were only really used in a few welders and maybe some generators back in the 70s and 80s.

Good luck mating any of them to a standard transmission. You'll probably be making your own adapter.

EDIT: I'll be blunt: this is a stupid project. If you do go through with it, I'll be surprised, but I'll also be very interested to see you do it.

THIS is the spec sheet, if anyone else wants to see how dumb this is.

The 4th 5-seater YJ in the world.

So, How do you really feel?
