I have a 1978 Crown Coach school bus with a Detroit Diesel 6L-71T engine in it that is totally out of commission. Instead of doing a rebuild, we want to swap the engine. One problem though: we can't find another DD 6L-71T engine, and we've been looking for months!

Which brings me to my question. Is there another engine, such as a Cummins, that is equal or close to equal in size and power that we could use instead? Perhaps Detroit Diesel still makes a similar engine under a different name?

I just can't find any helpful information on this topic at all!

Thank you!

'It took 8 months to sell a Case engine that I listed on DieselEngineTrader.com - but I was very happy because it had been in our inventory for over 3 years! Was very happy with the price I got for it too!'

Rick Fulkroad, Flight Source Inc., Halifax, USA

'The engine was on other sites, but we received the most calls from DieselEngineTrader.com. We sold it to the first caller-from DieselEngineTrader.com. Also, there was a waiting list on the engine if the first sale fell through! Thanks for the great service!'

Fran Trapp, South Carolina, USA

'We've had lots of response from our ads in DieselEngineTrader.com over the years and regularly sell engines from Coast to Coast in USA. Also sold an engine to Germany and several to Canada. We don't need to advertise anywhere else its a great website!'
