Jaybee, indeed it does, it confirms my calculated weight as feasible.

Even without the back-story, I'm utterly intrigued to see more details of these designs and fabrications. This kind of stuff is well beyond the limits of my Dremel and devotion.

Pictures will follow after paint, I can't say when as the epoxy undercoat is proving to be a real pain to prep.
While this bodes well for durability in use it's not much fun at the moment

Quick follow up on engine weights. Not sure what 4 cylinder variant you have at present but this brochure suggests (more modern) D0834 units are 450-500kg. You may find the change moving up to a 6 cylinder unit is less than you thought.

Good info Pete, I have a euro3 D0834, the table suggests around 175kg of an increase, I'm happy with that.
It also means my old digger should (just) be able to lift engine and transmission together.
