    Thanks Vince!! The 450 was actually the Super Red Diamond. It was 450C.I.D. with 182hp @ 3000 rpm and 388 ft. lb. of torque at 1600rpm. This compared to the available Cummins C160 which had 160hp and 376ft. lb. of torque at 1400rpm. There was also the optional supercharged C180 Cummins that had 180 hp and 425 ft. lb. of torque @ 1700 rpm.

    Really nice looking truck, plays the part of a cared-for, well-maintained truck. I wonder how much torque those gas engines were good for?

    This one is a fiberglass cab on a 4300 chassis. It is powered by an IH Red Diamond 450 gas engine.

    15.8L Caterpillar 3406E Custom Reman

    I guess if I would have paid attention to the first part of your post I would have seen that it was going to be a 379.😃 Looking forward to seeing another great motorhome build!

    Thanks! Yes, the trans was sourced from a Lonestar, along with the 11-bladed fan. It’ll find a home in the next RV conversion, built on a Pete 379.

    Your engine looks great! I had one of these years ago from Clint Freeman. I used Ken Smith’s article as well back then. Given the transmission, is this going in one of the Internationals or do have other plans?

    wow nice job
  24. Though it’s not part of a completed truck build yet, I think an engine can be a model in itself. I’ve started my next truck conversion, a 1/24th scale black and chrome Peterbilt 379, and I’ve built a Cat 3406E for it's power. The resin engine is from Moluminum. It wears real Cat yellow, and includes several scratch-built extras. Further detailing will be added when it’s in-frame. It represents a ‘99 15.8l E-Model 3406. Producing 600 plus horsepower, the final generation of these 964 cubic inch beasts were the precursor to the C16. This one has been remanufactured and up-fitted with chrome and ceramic parts, to boost the performance and style. It’s representative of the custom engines from diesel shops that outfit gliders and other owner-operator rigs. Big Cats like this are highly sought-after for their power and pre-emissions reliability. They often find a second life in a glider or show truck. it’s coupled to an 18 speed Eaton Autoshift transmission that’s been up-fitted with a trans oil cooler. The build was detailed using Ken Smith’s Car Modeller 3406E article and online photos for reference, many from Kustom Truck, an Oregon-based glider and diesel shop. I hope you enjoy. Next on the bench: The rolling chassis.
