4bt inline/rotary pump

hey when I look around for 4bt engines or trucks all I find are the rotary pumps, where do I find an inline pump? is there anything else different between the two engines? cylinder head, exhaust manifold....

Noticed no love on this post. I have been looking as well (not real hard though) and they are tough to find. Found a guy that said he would be able to track one down probably but that they usually ran 2K. OUCH!!! I find that hard to beleive though. I think after some time I would be bound to find one.

For what I would like to do with my truck the Mech pump would be fine I guess (heard of 325HP) but I would much rather go with the inline. If you want to make as much as possible out of the engine it is obviously the weakest link and the place to start.

I've been trying to look in China for an inline (but haven't gotten a response so i will try again) I know they make them for the 6BT but not sure about the4BT. Problem is usually when ordering stuff from china they have a min buy which on something like this is usually around 50 and an absolute min and they are a smaller mfg company.

I would look harder in the US for an engine with an inline pump. I know for a fact that they made them-I've seen them in equipment made by Case. In fact, I had a buddy that works at a Case dealer price me a rebuilt engine, and it was about $2k. I'd rather do that or deal with a rotary pump than send yet MORE of our money to china for stuff of questionable quality. Hell, I'd rather keep the dollars in the US even if the stuff from china was of known good quality.

Another thing-if you're willing to settle for a rotary pump, look for chevy stepvans on ebay. One not too far from me sold for about $1800 recently. That was THE WHOLE RUNNING TRUCK, including the diesel spec chevy turbo 400 trans and the adapter between the engine and trans. Just that adapter sometimes sells for $400 complete.

Who knows, you might even get lucky and find one new enough to have a p pump. From what I can see, the 4bt's switched to the p pump at about the same time as the 5.9's did.

I agree keep the money here, but fact is I just haven't been able to find one. I also meant that the pump itself was around 2K that is without the engine.

But agree I think I should be able to find one here. I can find an engine no problem they are available up the wazoo. Might have to ask your freind if he knows of any pumps laying around.
