Don, For sure, sure understand your comments, most of my builds were for big power, some for longevity. Will always take a 71 over a 92 for longevity, The biggest I rebuilt was the 16V-92, interesting job, not as enjoyable, too big, Have a few 12V-92 units, all Generators, heck even did a twin 6-71 into a 200 kw, two twin disk clutches, interesting ,they were about half inch apart, common gearbox, was the LA & RB pair if I remember the layout. That was 30 yrs ago. Had them pulling same exhaust temp, fuel flow, was a nice project.
These new DDEC etc are way over my experience, I'm a mechanical type. Show my age
Played a few 6-110, stayed clear of the 149 stuff too.
