Hey ya'll I remember my dad talking about how many moons ago there was a company that made a kit to drop a perkins diesel into a chevy pickup. I've googled it but aint found much. Ya'll got any links for puting a perkins in any kind of pickup?

Well I'm gunna go with the perkins straight 6 that they put in alot of the old Massey combines, its like 350 some odd cubes, plus all the pickups I've seen have got that motor. If I could find a kit that would fit in my W200 I'd be Drool

This might be a dumb question, but what's a perkin's deisel? IS it better than a Cummins I6? Because that'd be an easier swap wouldn't it?

MARS did the conversion.

They also did the Hercules Diesel for the M37s.

Not sure if they actually still exist though...I think they do...

Urban, Perkins is a motor used in alot of the old Massey Combines and tractors. Now they mainly use them for irigation and boats, but boy I tell you what, you hook a perkins I6 to a 5.9 cummins and it will drag that cummins around the parking lot Very Happy
