5 Ton Mack Engine question

Recommended Posts

Local guy has a 5 Ton Military Mack for sale for not a lot of money.

Naive question is what on that huge truck could be retrofitted into a 59 b61?

it is a 673 with a turbo. Which would be a big upgrade from my non turbo 711.

Thanks,

Chris

The engine swap "should" be relatively easy.  Hard to tell without seeing what it is. Don't think much else would be of value to you. 

If the army truck is complete and functioning, I would leave it complete and source a replacement engine for your B-61 from something else.

Check CraigsList for Albany, there's a cheap 673 sitting in Troy at the moment. Don't remember if it's turbo or NA but I want to say the price was like $150.

I’d put the b-61 cab and hood on the 5 ton chassis.
