Cummins 4BT Engines and Long Blocks

Big Bear Engine Company Warranty SealExperience the power of diesel! Our Cummins 4BT Engines are the best in the business. Whether you are looking to replace small industrial equipment or are looking to upgrade to diesel through a 4BT Jeep Swap we will get you up and running. The Cummins 4BT Engine is a workhorse in its own right offering torque when you need it and the durability to run at full load for long periods of time.

We offer two types of Cummins 4BT Engines: Long blocks and Extended Long Block Engines.

4BT Long Blocks Engines:

Cummins 4BT Surplus EngineOur long blocks are perfect for someone who already has an older Cummins 4BT and is looking to simply replace the worn hard internal parts of the engine and then reuse ancillary parts. As a guide a long block is about 50%-75% a complete build. Think of the "guts of the engine" but nothing dressing it out. To educate customers specifically about long blocks we have created a 4B long block informational page here. Note we also offer a Cummins 4.5 L ISB/QSB long block (rear gear train and front gear train). Our traditional long-block 4B engine includes:

• Engine Block
• Cylinder Head (7mm injector setup)

4BT Extended Long Block Engines:

Our component build extended long block packages come with most everything you need to replace your existing failed engine. These Cummins 4BT Engines are built with brand new ISO 9001 parts, to exact OEM tolerances and have less than a 1% parts failure rate. As a guide a component build is about 90% OEM parts 10% aftermarket when available. These are units are perfect for a customer looking to replace an existing 4B assembly but also needs a new turbo or oil pump etc...  As a guide an extended long block is about 75% built out and is best used in conjunction with an existing 4B. Most customers will reuse existing workable parts off of their old engine as needed. We do not sell adapter plates, torque converters, transmissions/PTOs, axles, suspensions, hydroboosts, air cross over tubes, throttle linkages, radiators, differentials or motor mounts with extended long block packages. Additionally, extended long blocks do not come with starter, alternator, flywheel, flywheel housing (SAE#2 or SAE #3) but are available for additional one off purchase if failed on the customer's engine. Most customers reuse those components as they rarely fail. Extended long block builds are run tested prior to shipment. Our extended long block assemblies include:

Cummins 4BT Engine Industrial Applications:

Cummins 4BT Engines are primarily used in industrial applications. The engine was primarily installed in step vans and “bread trucks” for hauling cargo around cities. 4BT engines are also very popular in skid steers, loaders, dozers, forklifts, manlifts, wood chippers, RVs, shuttle vans, pumps, generators, street sweepers and baggage carts. Some Cummins 4BT engines are also in use in small boats and bilge pumps but mainly use in small off-highway equipment.

Cummins 4BT Engine Off-Roading Applications:

Cummins 4BT New Engines The off-roading community has taken quite a liking to the Cummins 4BT engine; known primarily as 4BT Jeep Swaps. The engine won’t win any races as the maximum horsepower is only 105 hp at 2,300 rpm however the engine is extremely popular when it comes to the torque ratio. The standard 4BT will produce 265 lb-ft of torque at 1,600 rpm however common upgrades can increase the torque ratio to well over 750 lb-ft of torque. That is a lot of torque at the wheels; perfect for traversing steep inclines or hugging the edge of a trail. There is a whole community over at that focuses on all the info you will ever need to swap a diesel engine into a off-road vehicle.

Cummins 4BT engines are also easy to maintain, simple in design and can get upwards of 30-40 mpg with performance upgrades. The 4BT is the most popular diesel engine swap for off-roading because it is simple to upgrade the turbo, camshaft, injectors and fuel pumps in addition to being the biggest diesel engine that will easily fit into a Jeep or 4Runner. A Cummins 6BT will simply be too large.

Note, long block and extended long block replacement units are sold for use in existing industrial and automotive applications. Intended use of the long block or extended long block package is meant to replace worn or defective existing internal gear train engine components. Bellhousing, fuel systems, solenoids and electrical parts are included are intended for individual one off parts replacement of existing worn engine components from the customer’s existing engine.

Component Builds do include limited rebuilt and/or remanufactured components when necessary but frequently they are non-critical wear parts such as aftercoolers, exhaust manifolds, water inlet and outlet connections, gears, gear housings etc. Each build cycle is different. Component built units are a great alternative to fully remanufactured assemblies where further wear parts are rebuilt to OEM Spec. Re-use guidelines govern parts availability and compliance with component built, remanufactured and used assemblies as stated in 40 CFR § 1068.120 "Requirements for Rebuilding Engines".

If extended long block packages are swapped into an off road utility vehicle or marine application it is up to the customer to check for local, state and federal regulations in reference to emissions compliance and legal permitting. Big Bear Engine Company is not responsible for any non intended use of extended long block packages. Each state and even local counties have widely different regulations (Classic Cars, Rat Rods, Rock Crawling Vehicles, Gross Tonnage, Number of Axles, etc...) so it is always best to do your homework beforehand.
