So I'm still trying to figure out why the top part of the motor separated from the lower portion. On those turbo diesel motors, does the block come in 2 pieces that bolt together, or it is 1 solid piece like you find on a gasoline motor???

On the Cummings six ,each cly. has it's own head and the cly.'s unbolt so you can rebuild it in the chassis of the truck.That explosion took the heads ,cyl.'s and part of the block with it .Those pulling tractors run huge boost and some run nitrous and propane .Basiccally anything they can throw at it .

That is a DT 466 IH diesel block casting on alcohol triple charged and they are great robust platforms for making power but what happens to the DT is they will hair line crack in the cam journal area over time going thru these stresses and it pulls the block in half. Hyper max is now having these cast in CA at K-BAR out of a higher nickel content steel hoping to get away from this problem but now has the guys that cant afford it raising hell about it but tough crap thats a saftey issue and he only had 120 psi manifold where the grease burners run about 200 220 and steel rods.

That thing had some european design look close and when the block is flying thru the air you can see a ohc pulley drive on the head...not allowed here by no sanc bodys.

Yes that would get your undivided attention would it not just in the stands even:D.
