Posting this in here because it seems like the best place to put it. What do you guys think of this swap? it makes about 100hp more and weighs a few hundred pounds less than the hercules motor that is in it.

I second the steelsoldiers recommendation. Theres a guy over by the name of Hot Rod Deuce that has done it. search over there for his threads.

I think the 6BT is a great choice since its originally designed to be a "medium duty" engine and you can easily bump up the HP and torque.

Just watch the brakes since the originals are a single circuit design.

Wow, I had no idea that they were single circuit. That is scary on such a large truck. I imagine you could adapt something else to them though.

The later ones (80's maybe?) that the Air Force used were modified with dual master cylinders/air packs so they had a split brake system. On steelsoldiers there is a tech manual or bulletin under the resources section that shows how to do this on any M35A2.
