Engine and Adapter Package – Cummins R2.8 with universal bellhousing


Cummins 2.8 crate engine

Machine yourself bellhousing



Here is a machine it yourself solution for mating the Cummins R2.8 to just about any gearbox you can imagine.  Quick Draw Brand has made a kit that is easy to install, cost effective, and works.  This package includes a complete crate engine from Cummins as well as the Quick Draw machine it yourself bellhousing that works with the factory DOC filter.  Our R2.8-to- cut to fit adapter is the solution if you plan to install this diesel in a vehicle that is unique such as a Sunbeam Fun Wagon or WW2 DUKW.

Our Cummins R2.8 to machine it yourself bellhousing package is the most complete kit you will find. You will receive the Cummins R2.8 Crate engine, brand new from Cummins Repower. In addition we include the Quick Draw bellhousing that is able to bolt directly to the engine.  The kit uses a factory Cummins flywheel, so no worries about welds coming apart.  Compare the price of this engine and adapter package vs. the price of just the Cummins R2.8 and  you will find that a complete package makes the whole process easier and cheaper.  This is not a complete installation kit (engine and transmission mounts are not included), but our package includes the most important parts to get your project bolted together.
