My old 76 Dodge Chinook motorhome would be better with a diesel that has good grunt and is easy on the fuel consumption. I want to tow an enclosed trailer with a motorcycle and camping gear in it.
Have been looking at some interesting ideas such as the new R28 cummins (don't like the electronics) the old 4BT and the OM606 The 606 I was told would create too much heat in a bigger vehicle. Simple seems to be the best bet and reliable. I know electronic controls helps with mpg but simple is more important to me. The idea of a battery and fuel is perfection!

I am open to ideas and would love to hear the reasons for the suggestions.

Mine looks much like this.

I would try my darndest to get a non-ic 6BT in there. Cheaper than the 4BT and the D250/350 donor will have all the complementary pieces.
