Iveco 8281 SRM70 700hp 21.8 Litre V8 Twin Turbo Heat Exchanger Cooled Bobtail Marine Diesel Engine.
This engine was removed from an offshore dive boat as part of a planned upgrade. It has run just under 6000Hrs from new and underwent a major overhaul approx. 2 years ago including new shells, pistons and liners etc. Photos showing the work being carried out are available upon request. The engine had run approx. 5000 hrs before overhaul and has run a further 1000hrs since making 6000hrs total. Injection pump reconditioned last year.
Original year of build approx. 1999.
The engine starts immediately and runs well. It smokes a little when idling and cold but when under load it runs cleanly.
This is a very serious engine producing 700hp at 2300rpm.
