Need help identifying this Detroit Diesel


Recommended Posts

I would like to detail this engine for display. I got it with a bunch of car parts a while back and was wondering if anyone could tell me what company manufactured it and what scale it is. All I have are the engine and the rear end so I'm not even sure what vehicle it came out of. It appears to be 1/16 or maybe even 1/12 scale.

Thanks for the identification, that helps a lot. Now I know what to google for the details. It's hard to believe this is 1/25. I thought it had to be at least 1/16. I found one fact: the real engine is about 9 feet long and the transmission is about 3 feet.

Well it's basically two 8V-71 engines put together so it is long, and in this case it comes from a mining rock truck so size doesn't matter much.
