Hello from Somewhere, USA

After doing quite a lot of research, I'll probably purchase an International flat-nosed pusher with the Dt466E engine in it.
Everything I have read online says to stay away from Cat, 5.9 Cummins, & Mercedes engines, but the Dt466E claims to be built much more intelligently and can be rebuilt inexpensively due to the removable, "wet-sleeve" cylinder liners. One person stated that he drove a 1997 model of this engine which had 788,000 miles on it and still getting 9.5 to 11mpg from it. Just imagine what they will due with the best synthetic lubricants and filters...!

Hell yeah. That's a smart choice. I'm probably going to purchase a 8.3 Cummins engine also for those wet-sleeves.
Good luck to you! Keep us informed
