Default PowerWagon Engine Swap.

I'm getting an original PowerWagon without a motor. Wondering if a 12 valve would fit. Does anyone know the height, width, or depth?

Prefferably stick, but it's probably gonna depend on what happens when the time comes. I just found out it has a 4 speed manual in it, not sure if it will work with a diesel engine though.

My whole intention of building this thing is to have a truck to pull my gooseneck horse trailer.. I would like it to be able to handle about 10,000 lbs comfortably.

hmm so this isn't gonna be like a truck for play its gonna have a purpose. Well either an nv5600 or 4500 would do just fine and direct bolt on ta boot a good clutch is all you will need to if all your looking to do is tow a horse trailer
