View Full Version : Repowering from gas to diesel

08-20-2002, 01:37 PM
" I want to re-power an Allied Chance 30-30 that I have restored. It came powered with a Palmer P-60 4 cylinder gas. I am looking for suggestions for the most appropriate diesel engine for the project.

A key element here is simplicity. I would like to be able to match the mounts or at least minimize the work required to convert the space in order to accomodate the new iron fin.

I am guessing that a 20-30 HP small diesel (Yanmar,Isuzu,Volvo) should do the job. The P-60 is a 22 HP mill.

Any and all suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanx a Bunch.......Derek King "

" Derek, best shot is to contact a good dealer of the brand diesel you want. They can advist as to HP, gear selection etc so you have the same performance. They also will give you dimensions of nem motor mounts, etc. I repowered last year ans saved a ton in fuel bills!!!. Good luck and post what you end up doing, so we all can learn. Kim "
