Is this a tractor engine? There is a conversion company near Warner Robbins, Ga. that does these, but I can't find their name. They may be able to help.

The more information you provide, the more likely somebody can help.

What transmission used to be attached to this Perkins? What is this engine out of? Does it have an SAE flywheel housing? If so, measure it with a tape measure... what is the diameter? What model of Perkins engine is this?

Can you post some photos so we can see what the flywheel housing and flywheel/flexplate look like? And some photos of the engine?

I assume this truck has a Turbo 400 or similar?

The only info I have about the engine is that it came from a Canadian Truck. No transmission came with it. I want to bolt it up to the Chevy 400 Transmission. I will take pic's of it and post in a few days. Cheers !!

I think there were some 70's era Dodge pickups that came from the factory with a Perkins engine. Pretty rare I think. Also I remember seeing a Renault cabover medium-duty truck with a Perkins. Similar in size to the Isuzu NPR trucks. Not sure if they put them in any other North American trucks.
