And so it begins


Recommended Posts

Hmm, that's gunno be interesting.  I know I made hooks to bolt on front and back of heads when I did mine.  You might have to sling it side to side inbetween the heads since the rear of engine is buried.

Hey, look at this way....you could be putting a Detroit in it!!!!  Lol.

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

I have one of those that is bent from use.

Come to think of it the bearings don't roll well either from the bearing balls being pressed into the races.

I wasn’t sure how well they would work with a truck engine but they are slick when used for pickups and passenger vehicles.

I’m hoping to get rid of my oil leaks not get more.  Lol

You can get a Detroit two stroke diesel to not leak oil but you have to assemble them correctly. My 12V-71T and several others over the years were kept leak free once this phenomena was addressed and good quality seals/gaskets installed with straight flanges were implemented.

Your life very well can depend on what is on that hook remaining where you put it and that vendor is NOT the best choice with the inherent risk factor.

After removing the intake manifold, bolt onto the ports a strip of 1/2" steel with a pair of clevis or eyes welded to it. I like these types of clevis as easy to reposition: (Pack Of Grab Hooks 4) 5/16" Weld-On Forged Clevis Chain Grade 70 Industrial

You can "pick" from these points and the engine will want to roll slightly to the left as it breaks free of the bellhousing. It's more manageable if the transmission is removed from the truck first.

Do you have an SAE#1 housing on the Cummins, or using the original transmission? I would be interested in any leftover parts you may have from a B-67 for mine.

Me too I stopped putting oil in it.

I like the idea for using intake.         My new setup uses a #2 bell housing.  I will pretty much everything left from driveshaft yoke to fan.

That is what I did but my lifting bar was a bit different and experimented with to find center, or balance point. I had the luxury of an engine on the floor from a donor to build from however.

I'd be interested in whatever you have. Looking at another chassis which was robbed of powertrain years ago.

Car engine 400#.  Mack truck engine 1500#.  I dont care how Harbor Fraud lists it, I wouldn't use it.

I wouldn't trust it with 400# either.

Mine failed with a a GM 3.4ltr engine going into a Monte Carlo which is not a heavy engine by any means.

I have one similar but without taking heads off there’s no way it would fit.   Being a b67 my front end is 8” shorter then a standard B.    The back 1/3 of motor is crammed in a dog house under the dash.

Inferior is just an  opinion I guess.   If being able to get parts off the shelf about anywhere, almost twice the hp and torque as my n/a673,  being 100 + cubic inches smaller making fit better, and the fact it’s been around for 30 years makes it inferior, then I guess it is.    I also have freightliner air ride,  power steering from a fl70, and front axle from a fld120.  I’m building the truck to use and abuse with parts that are reliable, easily available to me, and have people experienced in working on them.    And mostly because I want to.    

Then it would have been nice of you to start with a less complete truck rather than butchering a complete one. IMHO
