'69 W200 4 Door - Cummins Swap?

Postby CorporalAgarn » Mon Jun 26, 2017 2:23 pm

Hello All,

New to the forum here, so please bare with me.

I have a 1969 Dodge W200 pickup with 4 doors (its a utiline but I am thinking about going flat bed)
I want to turn it into a rig for hauling horses and other trailers.

I was thinking that a Mechanical Injection Cummins would be pretty sweet.
I don't think that the original frame of the Power Wagon would handle that kind of torque for very long so that means a body swap project.
If I recall, the Cummins is about 3 inches longer than the hood on the Power Wagon
I figure on pulling the body off of late 80's or early 90's (cutoff is 93 if I recall) dodge but am not sure how to make up the 3 inches or so needed?

Has anybody turned the hood and fenders into a tilt forward type then lengthen the hood towards the cab?
The motor I have in mind is one of these:

What should I be looking out for?
What should I know before I start?
Does anyone have any other ideas about how to get the kind of torque I want for hauling? (After all that is the main goal, it doesn't have to be a diesel).

Sounds like a great project, but are you aware that the Cummins n14 is a 14 liter semi truck engine? It weighs 2800 pounds and is 5 ft long. This is not the same engine as the pickup trucks use.
The B series Cummins used in the pickup trucks is 5.9 liters, weighs 1100 lb, and is 40 inches long.
