668 Project


Recommended Posts

I got started on my 666 repower. I found an engine donor to mock things up with. I have the engine plate built. I'm working on redoing the flywheel. I have to work on front motor mounts, exhaust plumbing, fan hub, air cleaner mounts. I have intentions of fitting everything under the hood and having the exhaust come out of the original hole. I haven't decided on what rear tires to put on. I have 18.4s, 20.8s, and 23.1-34s. But the pressed tin wheels are looking easier. The 23.1-34s have riveted on lugs. I'd have to build an adapter for them. post-118665-0-70687900-1451590031_thumb.post-118665-0-25040500-1451590101_thumb.post-118665-0-37877100-1451590165_thumb.post-118665-0-31659100-1451590200_thumb.post-118665-0-46253400-1451590235_thumb.

Pardon my ignorance but what motor is that? I can see it is a diesel V8 but am not familiar enough with any of them to know which one it is.

It's an Inter power plant I assume?

Here you go Troy. If this turns out half as cool as the Detroit swap you will have a sweet project.

Right now I'm working on the injection pump. I'm trying to figure out what I need to do to put a variable speed governor. MercCruiser used the 7.3 as a marine motor and it uses a variable speed governor, but I'm having a hard time locating a core pump. DB2831 5090 J is the pump number I think I need. If there is anyone on here that is familiar with it, please chime in. Thanks.
