Surplus Center is in Lincoln Nebraska. My business is down the street. They are good people, and I just looked at the engine
a week ago thinking about a possible upgrade to my 8hp single
piston Yanmar. Mine sounds like the tractor on Green Acres. Lol. Works good, but pretty low power
The yanmar they sell looks like a great engine
. I am sure it is a government contract
engine that did not end up in a government project
afterall. They are an army surplus business.
If you are serious about one of these engines as an upgrade, I can get some photos of them and post here.
My concern would be the mounting issues to your ( and my) transmission
. I seriously doubt the engines they have would just bolt right in place of the engine we have now. Life is never that simple.
You mentioned their other STUFF. Pretty cool place. I had a Kabota tractor and the manual steering
box went out. The part was the same as the national debt. I went into Surplus Center and got parts
for power steering
that cost a fraction the cost. Upgrade, and it saved me a bundle.
