    Water Damage? I would ask how they were damaged by water. I have a feeling they are used engines that have had head cracks or gasket leaks that have been sold at government auction and repaired. I could be wrong. Those engines are usually stored in water tight containers when new.

    I was told that these engines were stored for a while at a GM warehouse and the had condensation water damage for prolonged storage, I don't know if I buy it, but these engines are stripped down out of the crate, cleaned and had a fuel and water systems bolted on and are dynoed before each sale, what do you think? Anyone else hear of U.S. Diesel Engines? Supposed to be out of Colorado.
