Oooops, I got a warning for sending you the ebay listing. Can't send active auction listings.

Well, it's the guy who has the transmission controller listed. I'm deep into trying to find manuals
and from them there could be cross listings for parts...depends on what manuals, if any, I can locate.
FWIW, I Googled 2330-01-531-2701 and that is the NSN, National Stock Number. Tons of info just
from that search.

You may have gotten a warning for posting auction information on the site, but there is nothing stopping you from letting someone know via PM about that information.

Has anyone bought any of the MWM 2.8 liter diesel engines from GP? The engine fits the M1161 air transportable Growler from the Marines. I bought one about 2 months ago. It looked new, still in the crate wrapped in plastic and such. Well I am having quite the time finding the parts for this engine and am wondering if anyone else has a lead as to where to go to get parts for this thing. I went directly to Growler manufacturing directly, both a phone call and email... NO RESPONSE. I went to a Navistar dealer and the had never heard of MWM, funny cuz Navistar bought MWM back in 2006. Anyways I finally contacted MWM Brazil and they directed me to to the only authorized MWM dealer in North America out in Ohio called Hercules manufacturing. I need a starter and a flywheel and a computer, I was quoted a price for a stater of 617 bucks and that does not include shipping from Brazil. The flywheel is 428 bucks and also does not include shipping from Brazil. Unable to get a computer. I know that the flexplate fits a 4L60 transmission but would a turbo 350 bell housing have the same bolt pattern. Any help would be nice!
I bought one last year around the time of this post, I'm putting it in my 93YJ with a 700r4 transmission so I dont have to use a computer, Im told this motor will run without a computer. I see you talking about a flex plate. What are you referring too. Also I purchased a 3 bolt starter that i thought was going to work but now im not so sure. Any info you could share would help alot. Im in Md. Could send you my email or phone number. Would also like the manuals.

So the starter I got from Hercules was not for this engine... It doesn't fit and is too long, the snout doesn't fit the plate for the mounting...so I'm back to square one... anyone want to buy a crated MWM with a flywheel $3500 you pick up unless u want me to haul it to you.
You still give up on this engine? Call me 4437903397

Congratulations on your accomplishments. Could you give me a lead on how to get that starter? I'm searching for months now trying to buy one and hitting one stone wall after another. I even managed to get the MWM part number ( 9.0572.01.0.0097) but nobody has been able to cross reference it! Any info on that starter would be appreciated.

My second M1161 was purchased for parts but turns out not to have not been used at all! The starter had been damaged by a stuck relay that kept the start pulse on the solenoid due to welded contacts in the slave relay!! No wear on any of the pedals or other parts! But finding that starter has been, as you know, a hassle.

Thanks,
Larry
Have you found your starter Yet ?

Lees alternator, it is a OSGR 24 volt 4.5kw 11 Teeth cw Toyota lift truck . Prestolite 7705 Military with Drive SDND-2057 & housing change is how the Invoice reads. The starter on the Growler was burnt up and this just bolted on.

You meant Lees starter correct. So you found one that bolted right on and worked with no shims/ adapters? Also Im looking for a flex plate adapter, Im using a chevy auto trans like the growler did. I don't wanna give up on this engine.... I also need an alternator, belt and tensioner set up for this MWM 2.8, Thats all I think I'm running on the front of the engine. All help is appreciated. In the end I shall have a 93yj jeep with no computers, 513gears 4speed auto trans with Atlas transfer case.

I see an auction at GP for some growler parts and I see a starter in the parts. Its in Albany Georgia and its for July 01 and its starting bid is $200.

If anyone has a starter they could part with for less than 400 bucks that would be great.... unless they are going to bid on this auction and don't need the starter fro this sale.

It is listed as "Assorted ITV Parts"
