Thanks for explaining that. Wow 40” is very long for sure. What’s the rpm range? I do like 2 strokes View attachment 734605 i went for a ride Friday

WFO.

If you ever heard a skidder run that wasn’t a John Deere in the 1960s-1980s, chances are it was Detroit Powered.

They have their own sound.

My neighbor put one in his pickup makes o lot of noise but gets the job done. He picked up a new toy to try and shoehorn into a truck an old military generator with a v12 Detroit for a power plant. Can’t wait to see what he does with it. I hear it running every now and then sounds scary hope he has a strong enough frame to hold it.

Sweet rigs man!!!

Don't worry, the 4-53t won't be stock, but even stock they offered it up to 215hp/495lbft which is still more grunt than a 454. I'm doing a full electronic DDEC conversion with compound turbos and an external air bypass system. Should be about 500hp/1000-1200lbft.

What setup had that kind of power on a stock 4-53T?
I seemed to recall them being around the same power #s as the early 6BT Cummins, so I looked it up just to check on my memory.
All I can find is 175hp, 420ft/lbs. Early 6BT being ~160/400.

Well jeez, I wasn't expecting such a reaction for the truck :laugh:. Thanks guys! It's an 82 with a 91 front clip. I drove it to michigan from california last summer, only has 109kmi on it. It's currently a 454/4spd, but I'm building a detroit 4-53t/eaton rto610 for it. Going to build a hydraulic dump flat bed for it, multilink air suspension, and do a mild restoration/slight modernization hopefully this fall with a fresh coat of silver. Going to convert to power windows/locks, tilt column, delay wipers, etc.



Upside down 4-53
That is the stuff dreams are made of. You will also need a Jake and an air starter...….:D

What I have done is revived a dead saw on a rain day. The Ol Homi had the typical blue coil of death syndrome and after going through the 3 I had I sprung for a new one, she lives to be a stump saw again!!
