Charlie,

Tomorrow (Monday) call Tony or Brad @ Seaboard Marine, Oxnard CA.

Seaboard Marine - Custom Marine Diesel Repower Specialists

Seaboard is owned by Tony Athens, a Cummins marine engine specialist.
He's very well versed in the 4BTA/6BTA family. Seaboard is one of the largest Cummins marine dealerships in North America.

Remember, the 4BTA is a great little engine. Not as many produced as it's big brother the 6BTA so pricing may be a bit "different" :D due to low production.

FWIW, Bill D

Thank you im shure it cant cost more then the industrial injection coated ones ive been looking at 1200 for four of them and ther 17.1 comp

I need sumthing lower because im gona try to push 80 psi all day every day and see if i can make it last my last one didnt when i buit the turbos and nitrous.

Cummins manual says ther the same part number as 6bta.

Im going to use brazil rods factory gaskets and maby a marine head not shur factory works fine if you girdle it with sum 625 studs i mite make 450hp with a ve pump on fuel then turn the screws down and drive home pulling my other car on the trailer this little motor is in a mini big rig with a giant giant intercooler i post sum picks later but people are probely gona hate it
Its big lil scary looking truck built by hand outa scrap iron its differnt but nice for use to being rust then hand buffed to mirror finish but thanks im kinda scared to call him he looks like hes a busy person but im curios on how much they are because us coal rollin land folks talk about them evey day and 1 out of 5 have a set of them low comp pistons at the races or pulls

Been nurning up these little 4 bangers with nitrous injection ??:eek:

Are you drag racing this little diesel out there or you running your "tractor" extra fast ???:rolleyes:

Kinda both making my old truck into a tractor that pulls the race car to the the drag strip
Funny thing is the truck is almost as fast as the car and sumtimes the car breaks early in the day and i want to use my truck to finish the race because i am a points racer and have to race something even if its moms car

And for the tractor part i am converting my cab from a 84 chevy to a 1980 peterbuit 359 cab and front clip and when the county fair truck pull comes around i bolt the biglug ag tires on the duals and pull the sled

Starting the cab swap after engine rebuild
