1966 Detroit Diesel power

So the tag shows Detroit Diesel 6177N, is that the same as a 6-71? Can't seem to find anything on line other than it was in IH trucks

Yeah, 6-71N naturally asperated, so likely 238 hp but could be less.
Picture would help. What "tag" are you looking at?

Also love how I am considered a "rookie". I was the 99th person to register on the oldihc site back in the 90's. So many pictures and information gone forever.

That "rookie" thing has nothing to do with anything other than the number of posts you make, don't take it too hard.

Yeah, I don't remember how many times I have registered on this site. World of computers, crashes happen. At least it is still here. Funny thing is I don't think I've got much further on my RF-190 than when I first registered. LOL
