Rob Posted September 15, 2009 Share Posted September 15, 2009 I have brought my 12V-71T engine back to the shop this weekend and plan to pull the V8 Mack from my R795 shortly for test fitment of the 12V. As you may remember the 12V is from a genset that I maintain at work and is in very good condition, but was retired due to age. I purchased a very good running 8V-71 engine to swap to the genset, as to make this 12V available for truck usage. The swapped parts consist of the flywheel housing, governor assembly. auxiliary shafting for "V" belt sheaves on the front and rear of the engine, power steering pump and coupling, and a few other little things I'm sure I've missed. The 12V in the photos does not have the turbochargers remounted. The V8 currently in the truck runs well but is needing some injection pump work. It will be retained and used in another project someday. Rob Quote Plodding along with no job nor practical application for my existence, but still trying to fix what's broke.
