  1. 4-53 to 4-53TTA

    Detroit, Perkins, Caterpillar
    Collecting more oddball parts, I was able to track down a starter drive for my air starter. Figured it was a good night to crack a beer and mess with it. HD starters all run the same mount pattern/ring gear offset, you just change out the pinion gear to match your ring gear. I needed to swap to...
  2. Cat c2.2 ford ranger swap

    Detroit, Perkins, Caterpillar
    I have a compound turbo vw tdi in my 2000 ford ranger as a daily driver. I don't mean to come off negative, so please don't take any of what I say that way. There's just some hard truths that need recognized when doing a project as large as an engine swap in a somewhat late-ish model vehicle...
  3. 4-53 to 4-53TTA

    Detroit, Perkins, Caterpillar
    Some buddies showed up last night, some beers were opened, that led to the shop getting reorganized, which led to the detroit getting pulled out and worked on :D. Crank plastigauged right at .002" and spins like a dream. Need to get make a trip for stainless bolts for the front cover, oil...
  4. 4-53 to 4-53TTA

    Detroit, Perkins, Caterpillar
    Yes the project is still going! Had some slow downs and changes of plans, but a very hot 4-53 with lots of boost is still going in a square chevy. I've hit the point in life where a regular cab truck didn't make a whole ton of sense anymore with a daughter and pooch, so I sold the red chevy. To...

  7. 2000 Mazda B3000 TDI Swap

    Volkswagen Diesels
    Everything I've been able to find says they are the same gearing trans, but the bell housing is not the same. The I6 jeep transmissions have the normal jeep 4.0L pattern and the v6 transmissions have their own pattern.
  8. 2000 Mazda B3000 TDI Swap

    Volkswagen Diesels
    The k03 is fine, but with the BHW pushing a heavy truck, it should probably be one size larger, same with the hx30. A gt2052 and 9cm hy35 is what I would run if I were to do it again. An Alh in a lighter vehicle would probably be fine, the only issue I have is making more boost at cruise than I...
  9. 2000 Mazda B3000 TDI Swap

    Volkswagen Diesels
    Thanks! Your best bet for an auto trans is to use a 4L60E with a standalone controller. Any other auto solution wont have OD, will need a TV cable or vacuum source with some rube goldberg engineering and won't give you results you'd be 100% happy with. With a standalone controller, feed it VSS...
  10. 2000 Mazda B3000 TDI Swap

    Volkswagen Diesels
    Howdy folks, thought some of you guys might like to see my personal rig. 2000 Mazda B3000 (Ford ranger with Mazda badge) with a 2004 VW Passat BHW engine with K03/hx30 compounds, 125% over injectors, cam, head studs, and valve springs. Running a 4.0 v6 ranger transmission with TD Conversions...
  11. Passat turbo on ALH

    Volkswagen Diesels
    That turbo will work great and give you ~180whp. Run pp764 or R520s.
  12. VW to _______ adapter kits. I'm going to make two. Lets hear what you want!

    Volkswagen Diesels
    I haven't checked on the this thread in a long while as things got nuts here moving/building a new shop. But since Randy (EVguy two post above) started making the exact type of adapter plates I had in my head, I have zero reason to make the same product and compete with him. I've been using his...
  13. 6.5hp Lister & Petter

    Other Engine Swaps
    Works like a champ! I'm definitely going to build a log lift though, I don't do much big stuff, but the few times I come across them, it's would be nice to just roll them over to the splitter and not have to lift. I did another 4 cords today with it, made a hell of a stack in short order!
  14. 6.5hp Lister & Petter

    Other Engine Swaps
    Finally got the funds together to order up an HD Supersplitter and had some fun over the last 2 days. Brought the engine down to about 2200-2300rpm and it has plenty of oompf. Happy to report it works like a champ and zero issues! Full day of splitting planned for tomorrow.
  15. Dodge Auto np205 and divorced 203 rangebox

    General Classifieds

  16. 4-53T and RT610 - Questions for Grigg in particular...

    Detroit, Perkins, Caterpillar
    Watch the canadian truck rodeo boys, you can shift an Eaton plenty fast LOL. You'll probably be able to start in 4th, then flip to high range and shift 6, 8, 10 if you're running light. With 3.55 and only 32's, you're going to want OD to do 70mph, 2600rpm vs 2000rpm. Get in touch with Phil over...
  17. 4-53 to 4-53TTA

    Detroit, Perkins, Caterpillar
    Got some goodies today! Rest of the OD kit and gaskets will be here in the next day or two. That should be it for parts I need to redo the trans!
  18. Fuller trannys and RoadRanger ten speeds

    Transmission, Adapter, Transfercase Discussion
    I just ordered a bunch of parts from Liberty Truck and Auto Parts, EXTREMELY fair prices and they are great to work with. They are only place that could get me an aftermarket OD kit K1671 for my RT610 for only $290. New S1255 input shaft was only $56. Email them at [email protected]
  19. 4-53T tuning for altitude

    Detroit, Perkins, Caterpillar
    That thing is sweet! Very Jealous of that find!
  20. 4-53 to 4-53TTA

    Detroit, Perkins, Caterpillar
    Visited the toothless hillbillies today and brought home goodies! The RT610 I found out there a couple weeks ago ended up having a broken gear and had some water in it. So I hunted around the yard for 4 hours and found what was left of a 1980 GM truck that happened to have a trans still in it...
