Uh-Oh! I Just Bought A Cummins...

Today I finally pulled the trigger on a Cummins. It has the rotary VE pump. It should be here by next Wednesday.

The plan is to run Destroked's adapter and flex plate to mate the Cummins to my E4OD. It's going in 'Ol White.

It's thirsty for oil, has a sticky or burnt valve, needs injectors and is severely underpowered.

Want to buy a cheap IDI?

I finally got the motor Wednesday (two weeks late). The adapter plate, flexplate, radiator, and motor mounts are here. A new cam, intercooler, lift pump, govenor spring, and tachometer kit are all on the way.

I will try to get some pictures.

The plan is to cut a cylinder off each end and run it up side down.

Finally! No more leaky, smoking, missing, ticking IDI.

There's a lot more room with that boat anchor out of there.

Nice change to the typical cummins swaps that everyone and there brother have been doing. I like seeing the 4 Cyl builds and also the more exotic non cummins diesel swaps. What are the specs on that cam? And do you mind saying what you paid for the adapter plate and flex plate everything needed to run the E4OD

The main reason I am doing the 4BTA is that most everyone I talk to tells me that it won't have enough power to use the truck like a one ton. That, and who in there right mind would put a 4 cylinder in one ton? I figure that I should be able to get 250 - 300 horsepower out of it which should give me upwards of 550 ft lbs of torque - maybe more.

The adapter plate, flexplate, and starter was just shy of $1400. As for running the E4OD, I'm going to do like everyone says I can't and just send the ECM a tach signal of 53 pulses per revolution and be done.

Oh yes, I am taking my throttle pedal and morphing it with a 6.0 pedal to get a TPS.

I love that 4BT powered brown truck that stops by every once and a while.

The manifold cut down nicely. I am a pretty good welder but I've never brazed too much before.

I'm thinking a HE351CW, or maybe a 341. I have also been tossing around the idea of twins. I need to pull the trigger on a setup pretty soon.

What do you all think?
