I'm planning a 4bt conversion and think I would like to use this engine:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CUMM...ryZ33615QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I want to mate it to a Dodge nv4500 that I think I will get from AA.
Any other sources worth considering?

Is the back of the engine listed above SAE 3?
Does it have any resale value?

I need a Dodge engine to bellhousing adapter?

Dodge flywheel or included flywheel work?

Starter?

Bellhousing/flywheel clutch system sources?

It doesn't have an emissions tag. The rear area of the block where Cummins restamps the serial number after they reman an engine is covered by a warning sticker. It looks a lot like a forklift engine to me. I personally would not even consider buying it for a highway intended vehicle unless it had an emissions tag.

What is worse an emissions tag for an 1988 engine in a 1994 vehicle or no emissions tag?

Anyone have a 4BTA with an emissions tag of 94 or newer?
That I can buy(whole engine)?

Why not email the seller and ask "Is this engine rated for automotive use?", and get a photo of the EPA tag.
Get the serno of the engine, your local Cummins dealer can tell you what the application is.

Same cpl as I'm running. Mine came out of a 97 fedex truck.

Weird.. The inline is a Bosch A pump i.e. typically a stationary setup. Would probably work fine in a truck but unsure.. I have a complete one of that engine, basically the same setup, low hours and good shape.. Would probably take $1500 for it or so, a lot cheaper. That one looks good with the fresh paint :rasta:

Anyway, you will have to source a bellhousing and flywheel or flexplate. Little value to the SAE #3 combo.. If it were me I'd try to find a genuine auto spec one, 105 or 120 hp.. Rotary pump typically or rare Bosch P7100 inline pump for auto spec (similar to what in the Dodges). I might be wrong though, that engine might have come from a FedEx truck....

Anyway, cheers.. :beer:
