    So what's wrong with the F engines

    Originally I was going to post this to another guy's thread but I decided that rather than do a hijack it would be better to post a new thread. Being a diesel guy who knows very much next nothing about gasser engines this is a question that has always floated on the edge of my browsing here...

    5 speeds in Coaster busses: Could H55s be hiding in plain sight all around me?

    From what I know this question really applies to the non North American guys as the Coaster bus was never imported into NA in significant numbers as far as I know. I dropped by my engine importers on Saturday to see what new stock he had in. There are a couple of guys in my club who are...

    Guys, I have to admit that before reading a post in another thread I didn´t know that Denco made liquid air barrel intercoolers. :doh: I had been looking at either the 4x10 or 6 x 10 PWR barrel kits for the 1HZ that I swapped into my 40. I have to wait another week or so until I see how...
