Twin 370 HP Cummins (original) VT8 370M engines. They start easily and purr like kittens. They are dry stack exhaust and very quiet running. Hour meters show 6000+ hours. We're confident that these engines have had an overhaul at sometime in their past.

Owner has several "spare" engines in storage.
