  1. Bought a cool 64 co1600 and didnt know which engine was in it. Bg265. Sounds sweet, has navy tag on dash. Was a water truck but tank is gone. Bought it to restore. Retired diesel mechanic and needed a project. Mama isnt impressed but she doesnt understand.

  2. So the timing on these engines is done by the fly wheel if i’m correct, but does that mean cylinder one is in the back or in the front by the crank?
