UC60 as replacement engine

Postby Xperimental » Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:19 pm

I am pretty certain that the utility C-60 stationary engine will fit a Cub. But after searching here for a while to confirm this, I thought I might as well ask. I have come across one of the stationary engines, probably from a combine. What would need to be changed in using the UC60 in a Cub?

It fits. Governor needs to be changed, to the cub one, weights are different in the combine engine, causing higher rpm's.

What would be wrong with higher rims if the motor can take it?

All the rotating parts in the Cub like the lower RPM's. That's why they are still running today.

My loader cub has a combine engine in it due to the original 47 engine having a broken ear before the loader was installed. It dropped right in, but I did have one problem that the clutch pilot bushing was a little tight due to never having been used and getting it in gear was interesting for a while. If you use it much do not be surprised if you need to put rings in it before long, Mine was great when I first put it in, but even though I did not run at full throttle mcuh it started using oil after a few hours of use, apparently age and metal fatigue are hard on rings. As to RPM, mine runs up to 2400 rpm with no load. I haven't changed the governor weights since the loader gets minimal use, and I seldom go to full throttle. If you mow, etc. with your tractor, the blades and shafts may not be well enough balanced for the rpm they would run at with the engine turning 2400 rpm.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I believe the problem he ran into was that the crankshaft of the engine he was installing had not been bored for the clutch throw out bearing.

I think he was burning out clutches, because of the higher RPM's.
