    Run, parts are getting to be NLA, and all V Cummins had head gasket issues until the K series. Not trying to piss on your picnick but save you headaches and agrivation.

    Im not looking for a motor per say this was a deal that kinda fell on me its a turn key ready to go motor I'm pretty sure i can get for like a 100-200 bucks like super dirt cheap, i was just wondering if it was worth the effort of me figuring out a way to move it figuring out a way to store it and than sell it or save it for something. When i first heard about the deal he said its a super huge cummins i was hoping for an n-14 cummins that would be cool, i would figure out how to shove that into my f250.

    Well it'd be cool for sure.
    But it only puts out about 200 hp.

    I wouldn't mind trading it for a 12v or 24v but there not a big demand for these motors unfortunately
