    Totally cool on the Cummins swap...especially if it's a 6.7 like I'm going to be putting into my '01.

    A 6.7 would be sweet I would even settle for a 12 valve around here it seem that they are hard to find.

    very cool project, your best bet is a 12 valve with a nv4500.:salute:

    I was thinking about doing something along those lines and maybe turning it up just a little. I see a muscle truck in our future:mechanic:

    Great combo and super simple to put in almost anything.

    I was going to build a big block but after tossing it around we decided the cummins is the way to go, how many old school Dodges do you see with a coal roller not too many.

    The best part is that Old School 12valve will feel new again going in the 65'. As for the 6.7... Way too much computer headaches and retrofitting unless you planned on doing a mechanicial P pump conversion.

    Yes sir their pretty simple the 12 valves i dont want to do a bunch of wiring it would be nice to keep everything mechanical like it was when they built her even have a straight 6 but this will rattle a little, by the way how is your project going.

    I'd go P-pump 24 valve. But it sounds like a sweet project
