Hold is not be the right word.  I just have to move the operation to TX instead of CA and creae a new build team.  It will just slow things way down.

Coachgeo,

I wonder if you have plans for the 885 motors you're pulling.  I'm 'desperately seeking' a replacement for my '96 Tiger.  At 82K (somewhat hard, I guess) miles, she's coming apart on me.

Thanks

Yeah... I guess that would make a certain amount of sense, wouldn't it?  I see (now) the post with the 'make offer' bits.  I'll PM you.

Thanks,

Not sure if you folk can see the pics w/out joining the board but here is a thread about building a Tiger using a Diesel Smart engine and an Ultima Tranny

http://www.suckindiesel.com/thingy/view ... ?f=3&t=873

This is very simular to my plans though at this point Im planning a non computerized engine.  (3cyl Diahatsu IDI 34hp 950cc Turbo TDI)

one of my questions with the type of frame the tiger has.... (spine type) how much frame flex is there if at all?

This is neccissary info when considering welding to the frame brackets etc.

Not really sure if there is any flex , the standard steamer engine is a stressed member ............meaning that it is an integral part of the equation to the frame rigidity . My best guess would be that the engine in a steamer is well more than 60 % of the rigidity to the frame , probably even more so .

thank you Mustang. Thats the kind of info Im fishing for. For example we have been discussing rubber mounts for diesel engines.  Sounds like that might not be too wise here with it being that much of a structural member

Welcome aboard Heiko!!!

Glad to see you here.  Hope you and the family are good. You got one kid name Harley right?  Do you have two kids or the one?  I forget.  

Sorry I have not updated you on my progress.

I now have to Tigers to use for parts.  I have the ultima 6speed and the 3" belt drive.

Because of availability have choosen to use a Diahatsu diesel.  Do not have that yet but I do have a diahatsu petrol that uses the same block so I can mock up some with that.  Wating for a cement pad to come in for me to work on then Im going to put a tent over that for a garage.

Thank you again for all your help in the past.
