    By golly you might be right, Charley !
    ...Bbutt I wasn't around for the first one, and haven't seen it, either !
    My knuckle had ZERO numbers on the cases, and the others had a number with FL, FLH, WR, WRA, and XRCH following a number.
    Only got a amf cone now, but I'll go out and see if there's even an HD on it... there's not, that I can recall...Lol which ain't sayin much!

    Charley, I just ran across this stuff on small diesels, and remembered you had mentioned looking for one, a while back.
    There ain't much out there!

    hatz.com b20 is smallest

    HATZ Diesel: 1B20/27/30/40/50 (V)


    or the Kohler kd-350

    Kohler Engines: Kohler Diesel Air-Cooled: Series Landing: Engines

    Almost looks to me like the kohler might be the hatz design???
    I dunno...

    Damned if I didn't spend a minute trying to picture that.... 2k+ snapping turtles at low speed down a freeway... All I could see was free soup.

    Don't be afraid to try a pair of transmissions to manipulate gearing to your benefit. The rock crawler guys are making nationally competitive buggies with a stock honda motor, and 2 trannys. (Not the kind you're embarrassed to tell your friends about.) Honestly, with a Diesel, that might be the big winner. Gear that sucker down like they did with the concept Opel Speedster that got 100mpg at 70mph.

    Weight always seems scary when trying for mileage, but it means next nothing when you're not accelerating. (Otherwise, how could my 3400+lb Toyota get 30+ on the highway?)
    Full hand tool assortment, collecting sheet metal hammers/dollies, more time than money.
