Kent, looks like a 220cid engine if its original. But they list 2. A BD220 and an SD220. Not sure what the difference is but they do take different rings. Stuff is available from Rockauto still. It is a neat thing you did with the knuckle boom.

Thanks Greg.
I'll be heading to the shop this weekend, so I'll see if I can find the engine tag to confirm the engine type. At least then I can research some future options... rebuild or swap.
I have experience doing engine rebuilds, so that's a more likely route... just need the time and priority over other projects.

I think it would be a BD 220. The SD's came out in the later '50s. The one you have in the "51 has babbited bearings so you don't want to overspeed them. You've got a good old truck, there. Worth overhauling and using. Or, for sits and shiggles, measure some stuff and see if you can't get a 4-cyl diesel to squeeze in there. Perkins would be a good choice or a 4BT Cummins

That's what I believe too, but Rockauto listed the SD too. I'd almost pull the head and pan, do a quick check of the bores and throw a set of rings in it if the bores passed muster.

Most cases this is true, but nearly all my crane experience is on boats and there were times the crane wouldn't move fast enough.
