I have a chance to buy a b-series ford, It has what looks like a p-pumped 5.9 It sounds good, I was shocked at the crank time it took to fire it up, but then I noticed no intake air heater? Is this a motor I could swap in place of my 1st gen? I may even keep the bus together and build a toy hauler, but just incase the rest of the bus is shook I want options. (the data tag says 5.9 and I think something like built by cummins for ford) Thanks in advance.

Most bus Cummins engines don't come with the grid heaters because school districts plug in the block heater when it's cold.
Check out the bus parking lots, they usually have a pole with outlet for each bus.
Great engine for swapping into your 1st gen
