743 bobcat the flywheel bolts sheered off twice. . This is a used replacement engine that is slightly different but was supposed to be compatible .

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Bobcat 743 serial ####-##-####501919999 model v1702-ba kubota engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes the first time we removed the sheered bolts and replaced them

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

I did not personally source the engine so I don't have the replacement engine info.

Hi,

Thank you for waiting.

The issue is that the engine is for a Carrier reefer unit.

It does not withstand the stress and torque a skid steer put out.

I suggest getting OEM Kubota bolts Gr8 and use Red Loctite on the threads and torque to 105 Ft-Lbs.

I hope this helps you.
