Unusual 806 LP

706 German

Recommended Posts

Just updating with some pictures. Finally got all my parts back from the machine shop. Had to CNC 7/8 of each side of the front cover and notch it on the bottom side. The rear cover came from Ed Leaman and looks like it is going to work perfect.

Looks like a clean installation, no lengthening hoods or anything like that.  I like it when an engine swap is done nice like that, too often it isn't.

I wish that was the case. It is setup so that a 1026/1456 hood and side tins will bolt on but I have not had any luck finding a hood for it.

I don’t think it can be done with out adding into the hood. I used a 806 gas radiator and 666 diesel fan that I had the center machines out to bolt on with out the spacer and as you can see in the picture I have about 1/2” of clearance.

So an 806 gas has shorter frame rails and hood than the diesel?  I know they are shorter between the 263/282 vs the 358 on the 706, but I didn't know if they did that on the 806 too.  I understood that unless you had the 1026/1456 grill in the forward position, making only those two with the longer hoods,  the 806/856/1206/1256 hoods were the same length.
