I've just started to look at a stalled engine conversion project and knowing what a diverse range of interests the forum members have, thought I would share it with the hope that someone might have been involved in something similar. The project was to mate a Perkins V8 diesel to a Fordson Major. Mainly as a bit of fun and not for tractor pulling or the like. The owner obtained a V8 and bought a home made conversion plate which bolts to the back of the engine and the tractor bell housing. After several attempts to get a suitable clutch to fit, the project stalled and the tractor and engine have sat gathering dust for some good few years. I've done a bit of research and at least the tractor is non-live drive which apparently is the one to use. I will hopefully get some photo's on Thursday if we can get enough clutter removed to be able to see the right parts. Appears to be a lot of other junk lying on it which might or might not be for it. I expect to have to go right back to the start and measure both 'ends' to see what I've actually got to work with. The engine had been used on a grain drier so didn't have a clutch. Could be a long job as all the photo's of conversions that I've seen appear to be slightly different in their approach. I like a challenge! (might regret saying this later).
