I work for Mike Buck at Buck Marine Diesel. We're still working on things right now. We're getting VERY close to getting the first prototype fully up and running. We had it running yesterday for about an hour at around 2000 rpm without any problems. We need to do a little more work to get our dyno fully-functional but things are going good.
Since we didn't have the dyno working properly, we're not positive on the actual power numbers. However, while running under a moderate load at about 2000 rpm, the exhaust temperatures were around 1000 degrees F. We ran under those conditions for about 15 minutes. The hottest that the coolant pump got was about 120 degrees F. None of the 6 heads were over 140 degrees and all of them were within 5 degrees of one another (evenly cooling). You could lay your hands on top of the valve covers.
Rollin, the engines will be commercially available when they are finished.
Check out our website for further pictures and videos.
Feel free to ask any questions that you have.
