The early N14 were mechanical engines they were based on the old reliable 855,the N14 Celect and Celect+ where not that good mine made a steady diet of the 3000 bucks a set injectors and the cooling plate in the ECM was a joke back then a ECM would cost you 5000 grand and the ECM did not last.

Cummins had the nerve to tell me a electronic ECM would just take so much heat then they fail they were right but you paid 

I don't know how long the N14 was around with all 3 models but the Celect+ N14 just lived for 2 years

I looked into the foam kits. They are for sealing small areas. Would take many kits to do a whole bus. Raymond

The Big Cam Cummins series predates the N14.  Both were/are available without electronic controls of any kind.  I think, (some help here) the N14 came with the Cummins version of the Jake Brake built right into the engine.  The N14 might be a little bit taller than the older Big Cam equipped with a Jake Brake.  Not sure.  Been too long.

Anyhow, both the mechanical versions can be hopped up using either used or new inexpensive, (relative speaking) factory parts.  Older 2 stroke Detroit expertise may be dying off....however, out here in SW Oregon, the older Cummins are king.  Easy to find a mechanic.  I was going to update to a Big Cam Cummins in my old Crown Supercoach.

It is all about costs, availability and maintenance ease.  Nothing wrong with the older Big Cam Cummins.  Power ratings all the way to 475/1450 are easily made going $cheap$.  Another advantage is that the mills have zero $electronical$ stuff to fail.  Try www.pittsburgfuelinjection.net   They may still have a site.  HB of CJ (old coot)  hope this helps.
