I'm working on the Italeri Ford LTL (U.S. Wrecker kit) and I'm contemplating swapping out the Cummins with the CAT 3406 out of the Revell Peterbilt snap kit as that is the actual engine in the truck I'm replicating.
Wondering if anyone has done this or a similar swap that could point out any potential pitfalls. Just familiarity from building this kit before might be helpful.
I'm waffling between full accuracy or just doing the easy thing and sticking with the Cummins (if I didn't tell you what was under the hood of the real truck nobody but me would be the wiser). My biggest concern is making sure the air cleaner assembly lines up right. I realize there is a slight size issue with the CAT being 1/25 and the Ford 1/24 but I can't see the difference being that noticeable.
