Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
I ran this one on old nasty fryer oil, gear oil, diesel, and motor oil. You'll find the Cat engines will be a lot more picky about the fuel in practice, and more expensive to repair by a longshot.The 6BT is a great engine. Had one in a Dodge Pick-up but is too fussy about
fuel quality. Been thinking about a 6 cyclinder CAT of some sort.
What do you suggest?
You can't hardly watch anything on there anymore without suffering through ads. I refuse to knowingly give Google a nickel of my money, so I'll keep suffering.I didn't know ads like that were on there, but I also can't control what ads run.
I got YouTube premium a long time ago so no ads.
It's heresy on a small, ad-supported site like this to even mention this (I allow ads from here BTW except on my tablet), but, you might consider an adblocker for things like youtube...You can't hardly watch anything on there anymore without suffering through ads.

It isn't super easy to meet the criteria for monetizing your videos. Took a long time for me.I'm all for supporting jeepsinkers work - I'll happily disable it while watching his stuff now that I know that. I certainly never got any ad revenue sharing for any of the stuff I had posted in the past...
I think some guys are hesitant to monetize because they think people will not watch because of the adds. I am saying I don’t mind watching the add because I know how much effort goes in to the channel. Your videos are very helpful to the community.It isn't super easy to meet the criteria for monetizing your videos. Took a long time for me.
yes you would make reasonable gains with your idea but it is no comparison to the Cummins swap where torque is on demand and plentiful. It really boils down to what your expectations are and how much work you want to invest. But if you were serious about investing in to all the components to (convert) your engine to a lds you may be further ahead buying a lds out of a part out and still having your engine as a backup.I hope I'm not off topic here, but I read a few posts in which some of the soldiers suggested other engine swap possibilities. Jeepsinker has done a ton of fine work here and the amount of labor he's put into it is huge. I'm too old and have too much else to do to put that much effort into a conversion myself. I don't have the money either since I retired. I have always thought, that the most $$$ efficient way for me to gain more power in 4th and 5th gears on hills, would be to do an in frame overhaul using LDS liners, pistons, turbo and whatever else is required. I think with 180 hp and 400 ft-lbs of torque, Brutus would do much better on the hills around here. Would Jeep and anyone else be willing to give me their input and knowledge on this idea?
where can I buy this book???
