In this week's video, we talk to the owner of this rare 1986 Marmon, we solved a wiring issue with the fan, and we put it on the dyno for a quick tune.

      Marmon might have used to make their own sleepers in the beginning, but i know i made them in the end. I remember when the stand up’s were introduced and took pride in knowing i had a part in the making of a fine truck. I worked for a company that manufactured truck and bus parts, and when they got the Marmon contract i was put in charge of it. We did all the aluminum weld and build. Those trucks were put together in about ten different Quansett huts.

      @H3R3T1C Oh it's this clown again....... N14 with a camshaft upgrade, Mahle Steel pistons, and some software retuning, can easily hit 600 HP and over 2,000 Torque without these so-called engine reliability problems you speak of. Guess what, It's a fuck of a lot easier to swap out those parts too compared to your expensive ass CAT engine that weighs half the truck weight.

      @n8bolton I wasn't saying that they don't run. I was saying that they can't handle as much power as other comparable engines.

      Simply running does not make a great engine. I'm a Cat guy too. 3508B or bust lol. They sound better than any other V8 imo, and with some tuning, they can make absolutely massive amounts of torque while still remaining reliable.

      Yes, I know they weigh close to 4000 lbs all on their own, but I don't care, honestly. They're damn-near bullet-proof, which is why they weigh as much as they do. Technically, it's a "marine diesel", but that hasn't stopped anyone from putting them in heavy-haul tractors.

      Lack of power? You do realize that a red top is one of the stoutest factory motors out there, even today, right? These are usually set at the factory ratings of 525/1,850.

      @Willie Rose Sure have what you want. 6.5 mpg isn't a lot. N14 can get as high as 8 or 9 with the right parts and fuel maps. You can take that mechical injection pump crap and throw it down a mining ravine for all I care.

      @Batojiri1 lol what are you talking about? I can get anything I need for my Big Cam without any issues. Inframe kits are a plenty. I can get a reman big cam for around 11k in Raleigh in the crate ready for drop in and I'm averaging 6.5 mpg. They are good economical motors with absolutely 0 emissions issues lol.

      Parts are becoming hard to find for them, and they are also far less fuel efficient than a late model N14 is.

      So the owner did a full restomod on this? His own shop, or at a pro shop?
      She's a beauty!
      I would love to see the before pictures.
      I know I saw this girl at the dealer lot in Ephrata. The salesman told me the motor "might" need a "freshening up". I said to "freshen up" a big cam. You better have some deep pockets. Because it like a home that's for sale, and advertised as a fixer upper/tear it downer. lol!
      I had always heard that Marmon trucks were safer trucks, but no one could tell me why. I saw one years ago that was triple framed, like MACK did, back in the day.
      Thanks again for all the info.
