Re: Universal Diesel ID??

The ID plate is just out of focus. My guess is an M25. I have a M-25XPB and it isn’t one of those.

Re: Universal Diesel ID??

The ID plate is illegible even in person. There is a Kubota tag on the side of the valve cover with the Kubota Id number but I don't have it with me. It looks like it might be M3 20B

Re: Universal Diesel ID??

My Tartan has a universal 5424. Your looks similar, but it is Yanmar silver. But I have never really seen the top of my engine ! Access/views are front, back and starboard.

Google images of the 5424 engine and see what you think.

It's close but my intake manifold is one piece, that one looks like 3 separate tubes.
