Would this engine work in a conversion coach, it is supposed to be new but the no warranty clause is concerning.

Maybe rebuilt but not new that is a sliver engine, crate engines never come with fram filters and painted manifolds or turbos with the electric shut down and air throttle I would say it's a military engine

Agree, looks like the paint job was a major concern, if it a proper and correct rebuild, the price is not way out of line today. With 9200 injectors and better turbo, it would wake up.

Yes, I got a surplus 8V-71 Large air box ports, had been used, but had new everything, then I paid $50.00 at auction and won, just shows the old saying is correct about the blind squirrel finding a nut every so often.

I noticed he did not post the model and application numbers that is a late model according to his serial numbers a 97 or 98 so you know it is not a bus or truck engine

Looks like a bus engine with the shallow oil pan and air throttle. Good Luck, TomC

Rebuilt, remanufactured isn't new..    If I was buying new I expect to have new castings.   Rebuilt cylinder heads that have run a million miles or idled for 15 years..

MTU (Motor and Turbine Union), the parent company of Freightliner and Detroit is still building the 8V-92TA (8V-71TA and 6V53TI) for the military. Unless it is a military engine, then it is a rebuild. Good Luck, TomC

With no warranty I would say that is Ace Hardware rebuild (paint) it doesn't have a bus oil pan the standard bus oil pans are sloped 3 inches deep in the front to 6 inches in the rear 

It is not setup for a gear driven alternator or a power steering pump the adapter plate is missing who know what else is missing behind the covers it probably doesn't even have the right cam for alternator

Thanks for all of the knowledgeable replys just from looking at the photos.  Is 1600 pounds of torque accurate?  I dunno.  What do you think the mill is actually worth?  HB of CJ (old coot)
