OK guys. Time to put on the thinking caps.

If Santa Claus decided to re-power his sleigh with diesel power what would he use (air or water cooled, make & model, etc)? Remember that cold starting and light weight will be major factors.


If Santa decides you are worthy this year what make and model diesel engine do you want under your tree (or could this be a covert attempt on my part to assemble a list for my Christmas gifts this year?) Apparently everyone is going to start holiday sh0pping earlier than ever this year so I figured we could get a jump on things here.

Personally, I'd be happy to find on of the air-cooled v-twins under my tree V Twin Diesel Engine 22 hp_Punsun engine,V twin Diesel Engine for sell ,air Cooled Diesel Engine manufacturer ,13hp diesel engine,20hp engine,22hp engine,25hp engine ,Diesel Enigne for sell,10KW,12KW Diesel Generator Set - bows are optional and no wrapping required.

Santa would likely go air cooled for weight savings. Personally I'm not picky at all.......I will accept any & all diesel engines anyone wishes to place under my tree! :D

OK. Now you've stumped both Santa and myself. What is a Springfield? :confuse:

I Google'd Springfield diesel engine and got nothing but hits for diesel repair shops and parts sales in Springfield MO, IL, and other Springfields I didn't know exist.

Is there a Springfield brand diesel engine? What is it used in and what are the general specs? Judging by the name I seriously doubt it is an engine manufactured in China!

OK, I get it now. I'm a bit slow. Say, didn't Springfield also make a 30-06? :shoot2:

Looks to me like everyone would like to find a diesel engine under the Christmas tree. Are you listening, wives? Hint Hint

I like those V-twin diesel engines...and have a few machines that would love to get one for Christmas. Or maybe I should go all out with a re-power, I've got 6.2 litres of smokin' boat anchor from a 1 ton Chevy just looking for a home...that would mow the grass

Since that Sleigh has to fly and cover a lot of miles in a day I would think it would at least need a 5.9 24 valve Cummins.

Would Christmas be the same with Santa's sleigh pulled by a diesel deere instead of reindeer? It would at least be interesting to hear a diesel rattle on the roof instead of all those tiny hooves.

I think that v-twin air cooled diesel engines would be great for all of us. If Santa doesn't come through I seriously think that our wives should. If your wives are like mine (want me out of the kitchen and out of the house) then the least they can do is provide us with shiny new diesel engines to play with. That certainly isn't too much to ask for, is it?

Yep, a CAT 3208T will do the job. Have that engine in my GMC Topkick 2 ton grain truck. Wish my 3208T had the power that one does though!

Man , I just love the SMOKER class at the pulls. I used to go to the Indiana State Fairgrounds Coliseum back when I was a teenager and see all the different classes pull inside in the winter. When the smoker class pulled, it would get so smokey in there that you couldn't see the guy next to you, but WOW what a time we had. It's no wonder I LUV DIESELS so much.
