Engine swapping

Recommended Posts

I have the California hauler that showed up and the AMT Ertl Wrecker is on the way. The hauler has a cummins and from my understanding the wrecker has a Cummins to. To keep my new logger true to the one my dad has I need a Cat. Anyone want to do some trading?

If you're looking for a 3406 B, you might want to pick up the Pete 359 snap kit. Pretty detailed motor and really looks sharp.

I've done a bit of detailing on it, but it gives you an idea.

I'm New here,And just getting back into modeling.As a diesel mechanic for over 20 years I can say that the Cat engine in the Revell 359 is an"A" model.The fuel injection pump on the left side of the engine is what gives it away.Both engines are the same on the right hand side.The "B"model the pump bolts directly to the front gear train support plate.The "A" model used a fuelpump drive shaft that is present on the Revell engine.The intake manifold on that engine also indicates that the horsepower rating on that engine would be under 350HP as it does not have JWAC(Jacket water after cooling).

I'm currently modifying one of these to Upgrade to a"B" model with CAC,(Charge air Cooling,sometimes refered to as Air to air cooling)to use in a W900 I'm working on.The intake manifold makes it ideal for that
