When they are turned up you have to watch the pyro, and back out of it when she hears up, my 96 Pete has 3406c 425 cranked up and she does a great job against the 3406e 550 and the c15 550 ,sometimes I can get them when the air temp is right

I worked for Cat for several years...the early B models had some power but then they messed around with things. When we set the timing we'd advance it just a skosh and it would help a lot. The injectors and AFR make a big difference too.

Yeah, there were some early B models that ran great right out of the box, but some where along the way (like a couple of three model years they did things to them (probably smog related) that changed the power output and it seemed after that they just weren't ever as good of a design ( lots of guys had multiple head gasket/and or liner seal problems...and the step timing apparatus was a problem too.

Shaping up pretty good.  It does look like having the axle mounted steering box helped make a little room for the swap.

So will this pull decent being it didn't come out of a truck? Wouldn't it be cammed different to make peak power in a small power band? I'm just curious.

Don is right, we use the slang bulldozer engine meaning a Cat. Sorry about that. this engine is a cross between a 3406 B and C.Just a Peterbilt engine that came from a 359 and has had some work done to it. Steve
