I'm new here and I don't know much about SD-engines (GM is my thing, originally...), so here is my background:
I live in Sweden, and I have a -91 F350 Navistar 4x4 CrewCab as a daily driver, some 200 000 Km (350 000 miles?) on it and no problems at all. Great car...
Yesterday I stumbled over a jet engine starter, a low pressure blower with a 534 in the other end. Hasn't been running that much and is in good condition. An idea popped up: Swap! Went home and found this forum and dropped that idea...
But! Along with that jet engine starter came a brand new 534, a spare crate engine, never started, original everything, and conserved in the military way. And so another idea popped up: Let's have some fun! And by fun I mean "build something around it..."
So this is my Q: What kind of tranny can I hook it up to? There is no flywheel, so an automatic would be OK, but which bolt pattern can I use without an adapter? Since it's such a low revver but with monster torque, will an ordinary truck EOD or similar fit? And is there any other foreseeable problems??? Any suggestions???
These came optional with the Allison MT42 six speed automatic.
