Just pulled the trigger on buying an 8v53T. Pretty reasonable price. Waiting for it to be shipped right now.

I’m very excited.

it’s a complete military engine with a ton of hard to find extras, including flywheels, oil cooler, fan hub and bracket, fan, automotive pulley, extra fuel pump and more.

The one behind it is a 6v53t. There’s some other 53 series engines in the garage as well but this was the only 8v.

This 8v53t was used by the marine corp in a lvtp7 amphibious tracked personnel carrier. 400hp and according to the sellers specs 800ft lb.

I have an 8v53n I bought a year ago and after some injector Tear down/cleaning, new flywheel housing to match a #2 flywheel and various other things I ran the engine for the first time this weekend in 4-5 years.

I’ve got a video of it on YouTube. Channel is “Ron France”
