John Deere 6068 w. gear, low hours

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, electronics 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 style boat repower, you won't find one in better condition.

Engine located in S. Tx. 9250.00 package price.
