Looks like an old fire pump engine Mike. Notice the dual starter contractors up front and the rack solenoid on top of the governor. It will be a screamer all right and probably be a great runner!

That's a 1967. Excellent engines. this has a Woodward hydraulic governor with a manual vernier speed adjustment. High quality.

Be aware how heavy these things really are. Plus it uses a heat exchanger for cooling so you would need a water supply or convert to a radiator. Maybe for just idling at a show, you could use a 55 gallon tank connected to circulate through the exchanger with no problems. It will most likely wet stack though. With 170 hp @ 1750 rpm it may have smaller injectors than a truck engine which would normally be about 238 hp @ 2100 rpm. Only way to tell accurately is to pull the valve cover and read the numbers. Would do this anyway if you want to buy it.

That will run quite slow, around 350 or slow when hot.

I agree with miltruck Mike. That engine will run nicely at all speeds but you will see some slobbering and smoke from the exhaust after long periods of idling. Pretty similar to your Cummins. Thatís why I like generators, easy to load up and clear out... Better for them in the long run.
The 13000 is still resting, been working on my Bessemer project. You have to find a good load for your 13000!
Hope you get the Detroit!

I love a good running Detroit. They just sound like pure power! I have a 2-71 in an Allis-Chalmers HD-5 crawler with a Tractomotive Shovel on it. It doesn’t have enough cylinders to really get screaming, but it does yell pretty loud! Some neighbors of ours used to run a sawmill with an 8V-92. Now, that thing would get your attention when they wound it up! You always knew when they were running the mill.

Looks like a great engine for you, Mike! Go for it!

A "screamin Jimmy" is on my list too. That one looks like a nicer specimen.

They have a totally different tone when running loaded. May be hard to get this one loaded. find someone with a tractor dyno to get a load on it.

She just needs an air starter and a set of jake brakes and you are set for the show circuit!
