Default Re: I wish I could build one of these

Just curious, did your Uncle say anything about the bolt pattern the adaptor
mated ? Was the Tow Motor like with a SAE#3 bolt pattern and have to go to a
different standard ? I ran across this when Dad and Grandad were talking about converting a car to a diesel engine. Dad wanted a pickup with one of those custom Perkins Diesels from the UK. But he got such a deal on a van from a guy who was going into divorce he bought the van. He reasoned the money he saved on it would go along ways of fuel and probably level out about the same
as the Perkins Pickup.

Ahhh economics, the advasary of a builders joy.
