I don't think you got what i was saying. This engine grenaded @ the number 1 cylinder, you can see all the way throught the block. Piston is sticking out the side of the block, head is destroyed. I need to repace compete engine. I was wondering if the industrial engine can be used as a highway engine?
Technician: FIX-IT, Technician replied 8 years ago
sorry yes you are correct i did,i've never seen this done,and there are to many complications,ecm,rear cover,would be different and industrial engines don't follow the same emission regulations,which means that if dot found out for what ever reason they could condemn the truck especially in california,you can do what ever you like but it sounds like you could run into some serious headaches,i wouldn't recommend it..once again sorry for the misread..
