    6BT swap questions

    It would have been easier to find parts for that swap, but I think I have it sorted. The Spicer 3053A from the M35A2 is a SAE #3 bellhousing, the Spicer 6453 from the M54A1 is SAE #2 bellhousing, so it's a different hunt for parts, same book but different page. I think I have all the parts...

    6BT swap questions

    I've done my homework, for sure. Comparing the estimated/potential hp and torque output of this modified engine should have it well above the Mack, and better than the multifuel at bare stock. I've specifically built it for lower end power, so the 1400rpm stock torque band compared to the...
