Government Liquidation auctioned several Continental LDT 465-1D motors between November 2015 and February 2016. I purchased one, which is going into my truck this week. I have also spoken with and read posts by individuals that picked these engines up to have as spares.


My question is, has anyone installed (or just fired-up) one of these engines yet? Were there any issues or did you get a good running engine? Or, am I the guinea pig?

While I.can't speak intelligently for this batch of multifuel, I can say with a degree of certainty that it is worth the trouble to ground hop it in the can before install. It takes very little time and resources. Do have a piece of wood to choke off the turbo in the event of a runaway.
