Thanks!  We had to do a lot of engineering and designing in order to not modify the chassis so we can put the original flat head EN330 back in it some day.. I kinda like the sound of the diesel though! :)

The engine came out of a sand conveyor in the oil fields, a little 4B Cummins,  the transmission is an Allison MT545 and came out of a blue bird school bus and the aftercooler is for a tuner car brand new.  

She runs like a champ!  The tires are 11R 22-5 off of the bus and fit good with limited clearance but they don't rub... it still has the original drive shaft with 2 inch spacers on each end of the drive shaft, and factory rear end which rolls smooth.   

Robert made the radiator supports, engine mounts and spacers... along with the custom made charge air cooler pipes, brackets, and wiring harness... we have received a ton of compliments on the old truck...pretty proud of it!

Great Job!  You should be proud of it.  I am working on mine now and  really admire the work.  Did you have any issues with the window regulators?  My drivers side door doesn't have anything in it.
