That rear engine setup is quite strange-but English engineers are known for that.  Having a sideways engine with a 90 degree output shaft to the rear end is strange.  Also the drive shaft driven from the front of the engine to the otherside for the radiator fan, is another strange one.  What are you going to do-are you keeping the transmission?  The Series 50 will run at your RPM. The 5.9 is rated to cruise at 2100rpm and red line around 3400rpm.  Good Luck, TomC

   I'm pretty sure that's right.  I'm out of town this weekend but I'll go check in a day or two.  Thanks,  BH
