I wouldn't know the first thing to do if I wanted to convert to a Turbo ?
But for FREE, I was surly taken it, of course a few guys where I work
that knew it wsa there think it's worth all kinds of money and want a
cut, --> NOT <--

I guess we figured out it's for a big ass Ford Diesel Truck
Some say it would be perfect for a Lightning ? Who Knows,
but if I could figure a way to have Both :D
And mount that sucker somewhere; it would sure look cool.....

One place I worked had a stationary diesel engine on a generator that had a big turbo that fed two GMC blowers that were nestled in the valley of the detroit V-12. (it was gray instead of yellow ???)

I changed the oil and the fuel filter on a maintenance routine. I had done it several times before without incident but this one time I guess I didn't fill the fuel filter up enough and it air locked and wouldn't start. I used to run it for 1 hour ounce a month.

We called out the pro's and this guy had a little hand priming pump and took care of it lickity split. Then it fired right up. He then told me it was a two stroke diesel.......

Yeah right I said and it has spark plugs to.... LOL he just looked at me and said go look in the book which I did after he left. Sure enough it said it was a two cycle but it had regular valves like a 4 stroke.

That's why it had all the air pumps on top of it. That and the fact that it would go under instant load cause of the generator.
I wonder if they would let me back in there to take a picture of that monster.

Anyway, the point is Rob could get this thing to work if it was the right size and your willing to relocate a few things under the hood like Battery and air box.... but I don't think most of us have deep enough pockets.

It sure would make a fancy door stop in the living room........

Good Luck Rob

I'm thinking Door Stop :D
But hellz I'd like to see a pic of that Monster your talking about :shock:

Me and V were talking about it on the Phone before,
it would be soooooooo cool to use it SOMEHOW along with
the S/C, but I have no desire to spend a ton of money and
mess with perfection.
(Plus I can't use the Power I'm already capable of making, Rods go BOOM)

I'm going to try and sell it, or "if possible" I'd like to ask a Vendor for a Dyno Tune + NEW REVOLUTION Diablo Chip (with life time Re-Burns)
OR SOMETHING
