Re: Advice on where to go needed

i dont have much experience with sand but even factoring in the mileage your motor must have something wrong if you cant spin the tires with a five speed. i have done some off roading and with moderate size mud/snow tires the main problem my 2wd has is ground clearance. it is usually quite wet here ...

Re: 4BT cummins swap?

yea, weight and size will be a problem. I checked into repowering a pup with something like a 4bt/4bd or a 350 or something. The main problem was those motors are TALL and the pup is short. A 350 was a much better fit but i didn't do because i couldn't part with it being a diesel.

injector pressure question

I have a home made set up and I put new nozzles in the injectors and am trying to get the correct pressure but the only stable reading I can get is what the gauge shows when the injector seals back off. Also what are the...

Re: C240 versus C223 engine question

I don't know how to work the rpm's problem out but gear drive timing is a real upgrade in other motors. Probably an injection pump upgrade could turn the motor into real performer if the internals are up to it.
