Engine swapped

Postby VAfarmallguy87 » Wed Jul 20, 2022 11:14 am

I had a crazy idea at work today. In the midst of fabricating some things I thought about swapping out the stuck engine in my 2nd 48 super a to a thermo king Isuzu diesel engine I have. Then I started to wonder if anyone has ever swapped a v6 or v8 into a super a- 140? If anyone has any info please share. This might be a rabbit hole I shouldn't have even looked into lol.

When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

I've seen cubs with v twin Harley and Briggs n Stratton engines and a B with a V-8. But the best mid was an A or B made to look like a rat-rod ole model T.
