JD 6068 220 Hp engine
with 5050 1.5/1 gear
, heat exchanger
cooled, including gear
cooler. Purchased for a repower project
that didnīt happen, from the JD shop that installed it new, maintained it, and removed for high HP repower
for new owner. Was installed in a recreational style Chesapeake boat
, and lived in a heated engine
room. Engine shows no rust or corrosion
. This is the mechanical series engine, no computers
or other troublesome gizmos. 220 hp.
Gauge panel, wiring
harnesses, and some spares are included. Engine was operated approx 50 hours a year, and shows a total of 845 hours since new, verified with mechanic
. I was told there is absolutely nothing wrong with the engine, but a new owner wanted 35+ knots so a new QSM was installed to acheive this.
As it happens, the reason I didnīt repower was the day I purchased this engine, the deal went thru on a troller with the exact same power. Having run it up from BC to Alaska
, and fished Ak extensively, I can tell you this engine is a joy to live with. Very quiet compared to a Cummins 6B, zero smoke, smooth and powerful, sips fuel
. Perfect engine for displacement
repower, you won't find one in better condition.
