Re: Engine wanted

Should have another video soon. Long story short the engine and transmission have been mated fully and everything appears to fit fine so far. Still not out of the woods yet though.

Re: Engine wanted

Here is the adapter as seen through CAD. I should have all the parts on hand by Friday if my machine shop can pull it together.

Re: Engine wanted

You have to pay for their time and resources to make the part plus profit. Just my CAD software alone cost $3500 So it makes since and honestly if someone made an adapter that would have worked then I would have paid $2k all day long. It just so happens they don’t in this case and I have the backgro...

Re: Engine wanted

I have done all the CAD work, but I have a machine shop to do the actual hard work. The adapter is .75” long and all parts are right at $1k

Re: Engine wanted

Autos are king when crawling through the rocks. That’s what I do so autos are my first choice every time. The stock Volvo drive train from face of the bell back is about 22-23”. That includes the parking brake which is required for the most part. The LT230 parking brake is huge compared to the Volvo...

Re: Engine wanted

Problem with the NV4500 is length with adapters and T-case. You would want to use something like an atlas short 2 speed, and that would end up being way to long. The NV4500 plus t-case is not a particularly short setup. Now maybe a power glide 2 speed and an atlas would be a good setup. But that end...

Re: Engine wanted

First, I would LOVE to get an auto in this thing. Let me say that again, I would LOVE and Auto. Though the R2.8 is shorter than the B30, it is much bulkier. It will not mount as far forward as the B30. So you cannot easily gain any drive train length using this engine. Basically, at the moment I fee...

Re: Engine wanted

Oh, and FYI there is little to no chance an NV4500 or the like will fit without major mods to the front of the cab/engine bay.

Re: Engine wanted

Not really, the 2.8 is much bulkier than the B30. The B30 has plenty of room to breathe, but the 2.8 is shoe horned in for sure.

Re: Engine wanted

The Cummins has a huge flange on the back. Not totally clear why. Seems a major oversight by Cummins. That said, I am retaining the stock drive train with an adapter. The entire drive train will move to the passenger side by 2” to make everything happy. It’s not required, but it will give everything...

Re: Engine wanted

It’s in the hole now. Lots of work ahead, but it’s seemingly plausible that it will work.

Re: Engine wanted

I use big Cooper Bussman converters/isolators designed for military use. They are 100A and about as rugged as a cockroach. 24 to 12v is all about using the right products and realizing money spent now save time and money spent later.

Old engine is out. I can confirm the stock engine comes out through the bottom.
