To be honest, I'm actually trying to sell/trade the engine to get something a little more powerful, and something that has timing advance built in, so I can use it reliably for automotive service.

I've found several 6.5 and 7.3L diesels from GM's and Ford's that I could put in a very low-dollar chassis from CL, still make out like a bandit, having only spent $213.97 on the engine, and be up and running in less than a week, rather than trying to modify this or adapter-plate that.
