Arcticmack Posted January 10, 2010 Share Posted January 10, 2010 Hey all I was wondering if anyone has thought about a cummins 8.3 engine in a B, I know that it will fit and will bolt up to the trans and can get either a push or pull clutch single disk,Its a newer engine will have to do something for the I/C but Im sure something could be donethe one Im thinking about is the Mechanical one so no computer crap, just wondering if anyone has done or thought about this as a viable swap. Also the HP rating can be adjusted so as to not hurt the tranny cause the one I know of is about 250 Hp. I know thats not too much for the quad box if drivin and cared for right. I know its a smaller engine than the Thermo, but its got more power and torque than the Thermo, Case of newer vs,old, I have these engines at work on Garbage trucks that gross 60000 so I know it can handle the weight of a 3 axle dumper, especially with a quad box for gears. any thoughts?????
