Alright. Looking to do a 4BT swap and can't find a good donor for under 2k. However I just found this, and live several hours away and can't really go to identify it. This guy said its a 4 cyl Cummins "220" motor. However, it looks like the generator/pump version with the intake facing up instead of down. Please take a look and give me some feed back. Any help is appreciated.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention. He said its the "100hp" version. Doesn't seem to know much about it however. Thinks it was made in the 70's. He just recently bought it a year ago but did nothing with it he said.

looks similar to the Marine version. Even after getting the right cam and other items to de-tune it, the adapter would be a lot of work...

70's? That thing looks like from the 50's!

Looks like a NTC855 with 2 cyls chopped off. It has two heads instead of three. Has a coolant manifold across the top. Probably weighs about 1200 lbs, too.

Okay, wow! My advice is to stay away! What you see is an old model, likely from the early '80's or older. It is a 4B (no turbo). Looks like it is part of a powerplant, but not near like the newer ones. I have a 4BT from a powerplant and it needs rebuilt or turned in as a core. But even mine would take a lot of work (and money) to convert to be used in a vehicle application. Your best bet is to get one that was previously in an automotive application. Good luck!

Oh yeah, what LincTex said ... that engine doesn't look like a 4B upon closer inspection. The coolant manifold setup is wicked different that any 4B that I have ever seen.

I think it's a Marine Version: i.e a BOAT ANCHOR!

Dammit you guys, it has NOTHING in common with the 4B other than it has 4 cylinders!!!!!!!!

It ISN'T marine, either!

It is one of these with two cylinders chopped off:

I appreciate your feedback guys, really do. However, I do have a question. You mention that it has nothing in common with that 6 cyl you showed. However I was curious to what is that motor you are showing. Specs etc if you could. Just curious. THanks again.

WRONG. It has everything in common with that 6 cyl and NOTHING in common with a 4BT
