Cub Turbo Pics

Postby Bill Hudson » Tue Apr 04, 2023 1:22 pm

Folks,

First a few facts to answer potential questions:
- Original post on the turbo http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=114829
- Turbo is a Kubota "from a 25-30 HP engine. 25cm, I think"
- Currently makes 2-3 psi boost
- Handmade intake and exhaust mainfolds (I didn't have the presence of mind to ask the size)
- He had drilled the main jet an additional .007" and didn't notice much difference

As promised here are thje pics of the turbo installation, click on the pic to enlarge:

adding a turbo will probably shorten the life of the engine with the added crankcase pressure, seen it happen before, one conversion you could see the oil pan "thump" like a heartbeat

Wow, that's a lot of fabbing. Have they run it yet, and what was the result?
