Got a chance to purchase one with a bad engine, how would the 751 rate?. Is it a gas engine, haven't looked it over or talked to the owner, just his wife. Is it worth the effort if it needs an engine?. Thanks

Its a gamble, if you can trust the owner see if it was running up to the time the engine died it may be a good option.
You can pick up a real bargain on non-working machines, thats how i got mine. For engine parts, don't go past aftermarket parts if they are available. Generally they are as good if not better than the genuine article, and they will save you quite a bit of money!.

The early 751's came with ford gas engines in them, the same one that the pinto's had in them, the later 751 had a 1703 or 1903 kubota diesel engine. You can get all the parts for a gas one at your local auto part store

Wrong. The 751s had Peugeot 1.6l diesel engines. Thats what the 1 in 751 means. Bobcat had a retrofit kit to install a Kubota engine and pumps in a 751 basically making a short wheel base 753. Entire engine cradle, pumps, and control levers were changed. Now the Peugeot is a decent engine but its kind of moody. Lots of little electronic junk to foul up. Its also getting harder and harder to get parts for. I personally would own one, but Ive been called a glutton for punishment. A "2" in a Equipment number denotes a gas engine such as a 632 or 742. 742B had a Mitsu gas engine. In a 731 those ran a diesel engine but it was a air cooled Deutz. The "0" model machines (720, 600) had a air cooled gas Wisconson engine. Local parts stores are not all that stocked up on early Ford industral 1.6 parts. You can get them but they usually have to be ordered. I believe it was from the 1970 ONLY Pinto. 1971-73 Pintos used a 2.0 mechical lifter OHC engine then went to a 2.3 Hyd OHC engine that you more commonly find in Ranger P/u from 83-95+ *Whew*

Oh...2.0 and 2.3 OHC engines are not interchangeable with the 1.6. But using a welder and a cutting torch ANYTHING can be adapted. If someone is in Eastern Kansas and has a 742,632 or a 642 and wants to let me use it as a test bed Im sure I can come up with something.
