B Series motors require very little electronics, are cheap and easy to rebuild or repair. P-pump diesels are easier to modify and more reliable than newer diesels with modern VP electric pumps. But the 4BT is actually an old massive diesel engine. It’s noisy, wobbly, smoky like an old diesel. The 4BT is quite difficult to install under the hood of a small vehicle due to its large dimensions – it is tall and weighs a lot, and it also needs space for an intercooler and pipes. This power is not enough for a full-size truck or SUV, while its weight increases the load on the front suspension and negatively affects the handling of a small 4-wheel drive vehicle.
