Re: What is the best engine to look for?

Any inline 6 cummins or international would be ideal IMO. My dt466 has plenty of power on tap.

Re: Diy wood/water furnace?

lol, no, you didn't :lol: My thoughts:

Going out in the rain/snow to load.

Leaks = No heat & PITA repairs

Additional cost

Re: Diy wood/water furnace?
