Does anyone have any sources of 4bt "crate" engines? What I mean by "crate" is a complete engine with alternator, steering pump, ect.

Thanks,
You can buy one directly from cummins, but it's going to cost big time. a Re-con 4BT was 5k + 2K for the core. Probably $7500 w/ tax out the door.

But just for grins, look in a Performance magazine! I look in Mopar Muscle at a Dodge ad:

360 Magnum 320hp - $ 4,700
360 Magnum 390hp - $ 5,000
402 Stroker - $ 6,000
426 Hemi - $13,000
472 stroker Hemi - $14,200
528 stroker Hemi - $15,300
540 Hemi - $29,600

4BT sound a little better?

So I emailed Jobbersinc and here is the below thread. Do not have any further details. Also, I am not endorsing this company. I'm just passing on information to help others find information.

Hello,

I was looking at your web site and saw you have a good selection of
engines. I am looking for a complete 4bta with th400 adapter, flywheel,
power steering, alternator, and starter for an automotive application.
So I am looking for a complete solution that I can take from the
shipping crate, put it into my vehicle, plumb it, and start it.

If you have one how much is a new engine? How much is a rebuilt one?
If you have any good running used ones, how much for one of them?
What would be the best method for cooling the intake charge, intercooler
or after cooler? Do you have this setup too?
Can you terminal ship it using Forward Air or some other terminal
shipper to Austin, Tx? If so, how much?
What warranty do you have for the new/rebuilt/used engines?
If you provide a warranty, can I use any authorized Cummings repair shop
to get the work done?

Thank you for your time and helping me find an engine.

Regards,
Jeff Blumenthal
Austin, Tx

The Frito-Lay truck is the cheapest way to find one, in my opinion. Dovebid runs an auction once a month. I got the whole truck $700 cheaper than a truck wrecking yard wanted for just the engine. Plus, I got the mounts and some other stuff. Then you can scrap or sell the rest of the truck and get alot of the money back.
