    Looking for a 25-25 HP diesel engine to run a hydraulic pump for my new train engine. I' tied looking for a chinese outlet but haven't found any. VW engine would work but the price id too high if they run.

    Thanks

    Commerical mowers, such as is used on golf courses or by city maintaince crews have 2 or 3 cylinder diesel engines, usually made by Kubota. The D950 is 19 HP and is a popular model to find at auctions, equipment rotations, ect. I am right now changing the external parts for one for my B8200 4wd Kubota compact tractor. Got is for $200.00 from a junk dealer.

    we can find junker vw diesels for under 500. try an ad in the local paper . tubo tdi are way more but the basic vw are way less. salvage auctions are good too if you can find a dealer willing to take you
