I have used Detroit engines in the 471, 671, 8v71, 6v92, 8v92 and series 60 models. There are millions of Detroit engines out there running around the world and will still be running after we are gone. I don't understand your comment about not finding people to work on them as there are probably more Detroit mechanics than any other single brand.

The two cycle Detroits need a low ash oil and don't lug them or overheat them. The series 60 is arguably the toughest diesel engine ever built. Nearly all buses built in the 1950's until the 1990's used Detroit engines.

Detroit engines are probably the easiest to get parts for of any brand. What more can I say?
