They were probably all removed from service due to a malfunction. I would rate the conditions anywhere from scrap to core.
How about telling the pump to drop a ton of fuel, and hoping the turbo catches up eventualy?The CAV injection pumps don't have an aneroid to add more fuel under boost.
Adding a turbo would help some, but don't expect huge power gains.
That's fine as long as:How about telling the pump to drop a ton of fuel, and hoping the turbo catches up eventually?
nothing like leaving a smoke trail.
The CAV pumps were, to my knowledge, only used on stationary equipment (generators, pumps) and tend to have "constant speed" governors. Using that in an automotive application isn't impossible, but the throttle feel will be "strange".I was wondering if a guy was to pick one of these up for next to nothing, could a turbo be added? and what is this cav pump you talk about? could it be pulled off and a p-pump be put on in its place? I am going to school right now to be a john deere technician and have a diesel engines class this semester and could go through it down at school, I could also order parts through the school and get them for pretty cheap. I am wanting to mate a 4bt to an nv4500 and put it in a old scout, is the bellhousing different or would one of these work. I am kinda new to 4bt's so I'm not that familiar with em yet. Thanks Guys
