    the early gmc/detroit diesels were two strokes and required a blower to operate. the most common ones were 4, 6 and 8 cylinder engines displacing 53, 71, or 92 cubic inches per hole. this is where the 6-71, 8-71 and so on numbers came from as we apply them to cars.

    i have never seen anything that big before, but if it wasn't photoshopped, then i'd say it was bigger than that

    try gene mooneyham, bud- he makes some of the biggest and baddest. i think he's in so-cal...

    From what I understand they are for real & that big. I just need to find some old train freaks, perhaps a train forum

    I would think Wide you could go to a locomotive rebuilder, there are several around the country. The problem is this stuff never wears out. We have a pair of locomotives from 58 and 59 that still have the orginal blowers and they will probley run another twenty years. You would have to find a wrecked unit. There is a railroad in Long beach that is the sister RR to the one I work for. They are removong the old units (engines that is) due to emission standards in California. Maybe you could score that way, I know a few of the wrenches there ride but I don't know them personaly.

    You know I remember hearing something about the emission deal, they are upgrading to clean burn engines

    Going to have to get me one or two of these
