That 4BT makes me drool.

If a 200tdi is a quarter pounder, the 4BT is like a double quarter pounder with cheese.

Noisy as balls, that is a hairy man's diesel

These 4bt's are everywhere, plenty available... you'll have to degrease them though or pay alittle more for a rebilt and freshly painted unit! If you know anyone at FedEx, they are in their breadvans! Find out their source and you'll find a shitload of them!

4btswaps.com is a good site to check out if you're at all interested in the Cummins 4bt. Lots of good tech info also links to sources for finding the motors. Quite a few folks have purchsed old frito lay vans from "DoveBid" ( go-dove.com) with the 4BT motor and sold the rest of the truck for scrap.

Glad you were able to sell it but I hate to see it go. Please tell us it went to someone on the list and they will put it to good use.

What was the noise line inside the truck.
I'm looking at using that engine in my Rebuild for the D-130 lengthen frame for a longer D110 box. Looked good I'm on the Cummins 4BT & Diesel Conversions Forums.
What was the power like at 65 mph?
Thanks for your time,
Cheers,
randy

You sound like me. I'd be skeptical that there is all that much there. The current LRO Magazine teased a Cummins swap feature coming in next month's issue. And there's a small shop in Sisters, Oregon who supposedly has done some LR 4bt swaps for customers. He shot down my inquiry re a minimal lift 6bt Defender swap, of course. <sigh>

There are now dozens of 6BT conversions in the UK, and videos and pics all over the net. Some are pretty crude but they definitely seem to be able to get the engines in with low lifts.

Thanks for the links, Down_Shift or he links I didn't come across then ones.
I'm just no wanting to use good money for a shit set up.
I'm not sure which way to go 4bt or the 6bt, I will keep looking and reading and bugging people with more brain power than me. It does sound nice better than the 2.4 puma.
Thanks

Does anyone know how the "military selector" switch for dual fuel tanks work on a diesel? (Original post for this truck mentioned it had the switch.)

Does it somehow keep the line for the tank not in use pressurized so you don't have to bleed the pump when you switch over?

Or is the supply in the bottom of the tank? In that case wouldn't you still get a little air when you switched?

I am looking at options for dual tanks in my 300tdi 90. Currently leaning towards matching under seat tanks with t's in the feed and return so it draws simultaneously off both tanks at the same rate. Might have to use fuel cells to try and keep the level close to the same on both sides when leaning off road. Or just never let it drop bellow half full I guess.

I would stay with the 4BT, about 400 lbs lighter, the 4bt can produce very good power with out a lot of work and if your right foot has a brain not tear up most of your drive train. Suggest a Pump version if you really want to play with more power. Turbos and pump work, Keep the boost down and you won't need to do much of anything to then engine it self, stock they can handle a lot. They are noisy and vibrate quite a bit at the low RPM's but you can improve that a bunch with careful installation, a fluid damper and tuning. Remember anything Cummins = $$$. Rebuilding one is not cheap
I have been working on my 72 FJ40 cummins for over two years but my Endurance horses and wifes 109 keep getting in the way,
