Anyone recognize this motor


Recommended Posts

Both the REO Gold Comet, and IH Red Diamond series were popular engine swaps when these trucks routinely operated. Considerably more power than the EN-401/402 Mack flathead gasoline engines.

The manifolds are on the wrong side for the Reo, IH motors dont appear to have a water manifold at all 

Ford are wrong as are Chev, I  reckon it looked a bit like a John Deere Header (combine for you Yanky lot) motor lying in the grass at the farm

Will have a look tomorrow night if I remember 

 

Hmmmmmmm

The REO engine only had two nuts retaining the rocker arm cover where the Continental OHV engines used four IIRC.

I love this site, thanks very much for the input. Would this Be a fairly rare engine these days?  The motor is seized and we were considering a 6 by Cummins swap. Maybe we should be putting our efforts into this motor. Would like to hear thoughts from u guys

If you are considering either a 5.9 or 6.7 Cummins replacement please search both the Brockway and Just Old Trucks websites for an excellent 20 some page topic by Oldspwr on his replacing the original flathead Continental with a 5.9 Cummins in his 1955 Brockway 154.

Did some searching.. Here it is on JOT::
