732t37 has a good reputation on FTE.732t37 has a good reputation on FTE.
I've heard various urban legends about people using the small Diesels from reefer units to power compact trucks. They're very long lasting and have huge oil pans, the downside is they aren't equipped for variable-speed operation (plus the issues with the bellhousing).

I'd try it if I had an old Hilux or something. Just for kicks.

I put the thermostat in backwards like an idiot and the engine got so hot I think the needle on the temperature gauge actually bent. Flipped the thermostat and she's still going with no worries. Does that qualify as a horror story?

Probably not, as long as we're talking about this engine in particular!

How many miles since that happened?

Only horror I have on my 300 is that it doesn't have enough mileage, and burns to much gas

Maybe only 2-3,000. I only drive her for fun on the weekends so at this rate it will probably last until 3,000 AD.
