You will find that after a rebuild of the C-60, there won't be any more stalling when engaging implements. Ok, so you can overwork the 184 by asking it to do field mowing with a finish mower deck, and you can stall it while roto-tilling deep in clay soil and dig up an 8" rock. But I haven't found many situations where the 184 won't do what is reasonably asked on a fresh engine.
I definitely want to see a thread on whatever you choose to do with your 184.

I agree completely. The four cylinder, four stroke C60 has more a continuous torque curve at lower rpm than any 2 cylinder. There would be a "creeper" type gearing immediately to run the engine at nominal hp. Being unfamiliar with the 3 cylinder diesels, they must have a way. I see there are planetary units all around the Kubotas but they are specific replacements.
